Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are settling into their roles as co-owners of Welsh soccer club Wrexham AFC, and that’s included stepping up to address a sad situation involving one of the team’s players.
Wrexham player Jordan Davies and partner Kelsey Edwards launched a GoFundMe page after newborn son Arthur arrived stillborn on Dec. 14 to raise money for Sands UK, which supports those affected by stillbirth and neonatal death.
Reynolds and McElhenney contributed £10,000 (over C$17,000) to the fundraising effort.
Davies shared the loss on Twitter:
Our perfect little Arthur Andrew Davies💙 born sleeping, 14/12/21, weighing 2.9lb. 👼
We never got to spend our lives with you, but you have placed a huge mark on our hearts, forever. Heaven has gained a perfect little angel!
We love you, little boy!

McElhenney responded, writing, “Kelsey and Jordan, @KaitlinOlson and I are so sorry for your loss. If you need absolutely anything please let us know.”
McElhenney’s wife and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” co-star Kaitlin Olson reiterated:
Absolutely anything at all. We are holding you in our hearts. 💙
