Wait, you mean Ryan Gosling's not a new dad?

It was a Facebook post that fooled a million fans…

On Sunday (America’s Father’s Day), Ryan Gosling posted a photo to Facebook which revealed that he adopted a baby after the mother of the baby died of cancer.

Thing is... it wasn't Ryan Gosling. After it had reached a million fans, it was discovered to be entirely fake.

But before it was discovered, 946,364 people liked the photo and 22,370 commented on it.

However, even with a baby, Ryan Gosling fans weren't swayed with some commenting: "Makes me love him even more." and "My ovaries just exploded."

The real Ryan Gosling has no adopted babies and is dating Eva Mendes although there is speculation they broke up over the lack of sighting the couple together in recent months.
