Ohmygosh! Robert Downey Jr. gave a 7-year-old boy who was born with a partial limb the gift of a lifetime. In a heartwarming video posted to his Facebook on Thursday, March 12, Downey Jr., who plays Tony Stark in Iron Man, gives an adorable 7-year-old boy named Alex a prosthetic Iron Man arm.
“Had the absolute privilege of presenting a brand spanking new 3-D-printed bionic Iron Man arm to Alex, the most dapper 7-year-old I’ve ever met,” the actor shared on Facebook. “Special thanks to Albert Manero, OneNote, and #CollectiveProject for their work making artificial limbs like this more affordable for families with kids who want to show the playground how badass they are,” he added, along with a link to Limbitless Solution’s site.
The dapper 7-year-old, clad in an orange bow tie, couldn’t be more nonchalant while meeting Downey Jr., and perfectly reacts upon seeing the arm, telling the actor his looks exactly the same as Iron Man’s.
