Get ready for some adorableness. While Hollywood was kicking up their heels this past weekend at the Academy Awards, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively spent their weekend visiting the Pediatric Unit of the Health Sciences North, a hospital in Ontario, Canada.
Blake, 25, and Ryan, 36, made a very low-key visit to the facility where they happily posed for pictures with the children and their families. They had specifically asked the hospital to keep their visit under wraps, and no media were invited.
Patients and staff were said to be delighted by their visit, which saw them meet children and parents at the pediatric unit.
They said the couple were “very kind.”
“I can tell you the visit was really appreciated by the kids, their parents, and the staff on the unit,” hospital spokesperson Dan Lessard said in an email.
“Mr. Reynolds and Ms. Lively were wonderful with the children.”
Parent Sarah Lavallee told Northern Life.ca: “Even though he had no idea who they were, my son did give them one big smile, It was nice to see since he wasn’t smiling a lot at that point, and I really appreciated both Ryan and Blake giving me something to smile about at such a difficult time.”
“It was a very unexpected visit, and I thought it was especially nice of them to take pictures of me with each of them before they left.”
So sweet of them, and these pictures are just precious.
