-- Chris Pratt is not only one of the biggest box office draws in Hollywood, but he's proved once again he's got one of the biggest hearts, too.
On Wednesday, the "Jurassic World" star returned to the Seattle Children's Hospital to visit young patients, and this time he brought along Seattle Seahawks' Russell Wilson "and his lovely lady Ciara."
"I am truly living the dream," Pratt said on Instagram. "Say a prayer for all those kids who don't get to be at home for Xmas."
The actor even added his own: "Psalm 37:3–4 'Trust in the LORD, and do good. Dwell in the land, and enjoy safe pasture. Also delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.'"
The hospital also posted pictures of the visit, including a heartbreaking one of a baby amidst a tangle of IVs and monitor wires, smiling and reaching up to touch the face of the surgical mask-wearing actor, who happens to be holding a dancing Baby Groot toy for the little patient.
Pratt is no stranger to hospital visits.
Pratt, after losing a Super Bowl bet to Chris Evans, showed up as Star-Lord (his character in "Guardians of the Galazy") to visit Christopher's Haven, a nonprofit that provides housing for families whose children are receiving outpatient pediatric cancer treatment in Boston, Massachusetts.
