Sorry, Robert Downey Jr. There is a new Iron Man in town, and we have fallen head over heels in love with him.
Eric Hart, a professional prop maker, has an adorable baby boy named Collier who has been in the hospital since being born prematurely this past July. When Halloween rolled around, Eric got permission from Collier's nurses to dress him up in a costume, and he decided on the Marvel superhero for a very specific and heartbreaking reason.
"I came up with Iron Man, because he's been hooked up to all those machines and wires, and that's similar to what Iron Man went through," he told TODAY.com. "There are a lot of times when the baby is sedated, and you can't interact, so this is something we could actually do and say, ‘We may not be normal right now, but this is our new normal.'"
