When Chris Pratt won the lead role in Guardians of the Galaxy, he knew what he wanted to do: visit children’s hospitals in his Star-Lord costume, and cheer up the patients.

This week, Pratt paid a Christmas visit to Seattle Children’s Hospital, accompanied by Ciara, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and, most importantly, a dancing baby Groot toy.

The three celebrities posed for photos with some of the patients, bringing gift boxes from Amazon.

“Got to meet a ton of great kids and parents,” Pratt wrote on Instagram. “Also got to spend some time with one of my personal role models @dangerusswilson and his lovely lady Ciara. I am truly living the dream. Say a prayer for all those kids who don’t get to be at home for Xmas.”

Once again, Chris Pratt earns his reputation as one of the nicest guys in Hollywood.
