Chris Pratt paid a heartfelt visit to the Seattle Children’s Hospital this week.
“The Magnificent Seven” star relived his touching experience with fans on Instagram, where he shared very personal messages about a few of the children.
In one post, the 37-year-old actor was seen smiling next to a boy named Rowan, who was inspired by Vin Diesel’s character in “Guardians of the Galaxy”. “Rowan was Groot for Halloween and his brother was Rocket,” Pratt shared. “What an awesome kid. Great parents and from a great family. You’re in my prayers tonight little man.”
In another photo, Pratt showed off his guns with a young girl named Madisen. “Madisen is #strongagainstcancer. What an awesome kid with such a beautiful smile,” he captioned the post. “She’s a lover of art and fashion and she’s going places.”
Madisen is #strongagainstcancer. What an awesome kid with such a beautiful smile. She's a lover of art and fashion and she's going places. Thank you @seattlechildrens for the opportunity to come by and brighten some days. My heart is full. Proverbs 3:27 Don’t withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do it.
In arguably the most heartwarming photo, Pratt wrapped his arms around a newborn baby and made a reference to his 4-year-old son Jack with his wife Anna Faris. “Ever since Jack’s premature birth, we have a special affinity for the NICU (neo-natal intensive care unit),” he said. “Today I spent a little time with Coen and Zion, twins who were born too early only a pound and a half each.”
Ever since Jack's premature birth, we have a special affinity for the NICU (neo-natal intensive care unit) Today I spent a little time with Coen and Zion, twins who were born too early only a pound and a half each. Thank you to the doctors and nurses at @seattlechildrens The boys are doing fine. Although they're both missing their big sis.
