A mother’s love is the most precious gift, and Ryan Reynolds went above and beyond to reunite it with her daughter.

Mara Soriano, from Vancouver, had her bag stolen containing her iPad, Nintendo Switch and her Build-A-Bear containing a message from her late Mother, according to Deborah Goble’s Twitter.

The message said, “I love you I’m proud of you, I’ll always be with you.” Mara’s mother was diagnosed with cancer 10 years ago and passed away last year.

“That bear was basically the last reminder of the mom that I knew. It was her voice that I remembered growing up,” said Mara, in an interview with CTV News. 

After “Mama Bear” disappeared, that’s when British Columbia celebrity Ryan Reynolds stepped in.

In a Tweet, he said “Vancouver: $5,000 to anyone who returns this bear to Mara. Zero questions asked. I think we all need this bear to come home.”

After the Tweet went viral, a good samaritan found Mama Bear and returned her Tuesday night.

“I just started sobbing and I grabbed her out of his hands and I couldn’t let her go,” said Mara.

Ryan Reynolds being the standup guy he is, wired transferred the money to the good samaritan.
