Of course, people couldn't help but praise the Hollywood star for his generous act of kindness.

One person wrote, "Just when you think Ryan Reynolds can’t get any better he does this!! The best bloke in the world but he will now get so many requests. As a disabled lady living with chronic pain, and other conditions, I would love a message from Ryan/Deadpool as I think they’re both fantastic," while another added, "Proof of kindness in the world. I wish continued healing for your son."

After the surgery, Ivan posted a photo of his son back in his bedroom. "He’s home @VancityReynolds!" he shared with the handsome hunk.
