The Jurassic World star took to Instagram and posted a series of posts from his most recent trip to Seattle Children's Hospital.
As if we needed another reason to love the star anymore, Chris Pratt recently visited the Seattle Children's Hospital and shared several inspiring photos from his visit with young fans. For Pratt, who's a father to son Jack with wife Anna Faris, the visit touched a personal note. In 2012, their son was born nine weeks premature––and the actor told People that the difficult month the family spent in the intensive care unit had "restored his faith in God." Now, he wants to pay it forward by encouraging others in similar situations never to give up.
On Monday, the Jurassic World star posted a series of photos on Instagram from his most recent trip to the Seattle Children's Hospital. One post showed him flexing his guns alongside Madisen, a young patient who is battling cancer. "What an awesome kid with such a beautiful smile," he wrote. "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.
Another picture showed him next to Rowan, a young patient who had dressed up for Halloween as Groot––a character from Pratt's movie, Guardians of the Galaxy. "You're in my prayers tonight, little man. Stay strong," the real-life Star Lord captioned the photo.
His final photo documented his visit to the NICU where he paid a visit to premature twins Coen and Zion. Though the babies only weighed about a pound and a half when they were born, the actor reported that both children "Are doing fine, although they're both missing their big sis."
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.
As if we needed more reasons to fall in love with this real-life superhero.
