Ryan Gosling did not secretly adopt any kid a year ago … as was announced by a fake Facebook page that managed to use the fake info to deceive almost a million fans.
The message on the fake Ryan Gosling page read:
This father’s day, I’ve decided to tell the story of how I became a father. This little guy was only 9 months old when I became his dad. His mom and I were great friends before she passed away from cancer. I promised her, I’d always look after him. So, I had decided to step up and become his dad. He brought me so much joy. He was my everything. 1 year later after the adoption, his biological father wanted him. Of course, I put up a fight, but he won. That 1 year of being his father taught me how to love unconditionally. We have to stop and be thankful for our children and children should stop and be thankful for their parents. What I truly learned most of all is, every child needs love. Save thousands of children and meet me while doing it.
This fake message drew almost 1 million ‘likes’ as at the time of its posting, with many declaring their new-found ‘love’ for the actor because of his supposed actions.
Also, the dude behind the hoax linked to a website selling an ‘exclusive limited edition’ T shirt called ‘Young Wild and Free’ for $22:50, claiming that the proceeds from the sales will go to a non-existent ‘Orphanage Home Foundation.’
Be warned … it is all fake.
