Is Ryan Gosling a dad? Uh, no. A Ryan Gosling baby adoption hoax hit the internet and fooled almost a million Facebook fans though...can you believe so many fell for it?

A pic of Ryan holding a baby made its way onto his (unofficial) Facebook page with a sweet story of adoption. How could that image, paired with the story below, not warm your heart and have you clicking to like and/or share it?

Even though it was Father's Day and not April Fool's Day, the hoax spread like wildfire, with ooh-ing, ahh-ing and complaints of exploding ovaries rampant on Facebook.

The message 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."

Sounds a bit like a movie plot...but the plot thickens, as the message continued that a year after the adoption, the biological father wanted the baby. The message added, "Of course, I put up a fight, but he won. That 1 year of being his father taught me how to love unconditionally."

And just how many people fell for the fake Ryan Gosling baby post? By Monday afternoon, more than 900,000 people liked it and 50,000 had shared it.

Don't believe everything you read online, folks. Even if it is as hot as Ryan holding a baby and talking about being a dad.
