As if Gal Gadot could get any more wonderful. The actress, who is currently filming Wonder Woman 1984, made a visit to a local children’s hospital. Dressed in full Wonder Woman garb, she went around and spoke to the children. And it was incredibly heart warming.
One mother recalled sitting with her 7 month old daughter when she got a surprise. Her daughter, Karalyne, has been in the hospital for 5 months battling aggressive acute myeloid leukemia. Kelly Swink Sahady told the story to E! News about their wondrous surprise.
She had a huge smile on her face and walked right over to me. She asked if she could hold Karalyne and scooped her right into her arms. I was pretty starstruck, as this was a huge surprise. The hospital didn’t tell us she was coming. We talked for a bit, and she asked me about Karalyne and how she was doing. She asked about her diagnosis. I could tell her crew was in a hurry to keep moving, but she was not. She asked about our other kids and even brought in some toys for them.
And according to the mother, this wasn’t a publicity stunt.
What meant the most was that she didn’t want any cameras from anyone but the families of the patients. She didn’t want any press coverage for spending her afternoon at the hospital. She did this out of the goodness of her heart, and that meant more than anything. We are Wonder Woman fans for life now.
You just have to smile when you see the images from Sahady. I don’t think it can be said enough how truly heart warming and loving these visits are. Some celebrities have done it, even fewer in costume. But Gal Gadot went in her costume to make those children smile. She was there for the children and that was it.
Check out some of the images below! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more heart warming stories. Wonder Woman 1984 comes to theaters November 1st, 2019.
