Father’s Day is a day to celebrate all the fathers in the world, especially those who have helped give birth to today’s hottest Hollywood hunks.

For example, we’d like to thank Ryan Gosling’s father for producing the finest specimen of a man we have ever set eyes on. AND in turn, somewhere down the road Ryan will welcome a son (hopefully) and we have no doubt he will be just as handsome.

But wait, does he already have a son?!

On Sunday, the Only God Forgives actor took to Facebook to tell the story of how he became a father. The sad part? It wasn’t actually him.

Thousands of fans were fooled into thinking he had adopted a baby in 2013 after a message was sent out on a hoax profile that read:

"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."

The story went on to detail how the little boy brought "so much joy" to the heartthrob's life until the baby's biological father fought to get him back a year later – because yes, this is something Gosling would do!

The prank has been dismissed as fake after it has not been verified by the Facebook team—and after it attracted over one million “likes” from followers.

Gosling has yet to comment, but being that everything in his life is kept personal (including his past relationship with Eva Mendes), we doubt he will.
