UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh tweeted photos of Jason Momoa visiting with patients and their families, writing, “Thanks to actor Jason Momoa, for stopping by this morning to visit the patients and families at UPMC Children’s!”

Momoa himself also posted plenty of photos from his visit. On his Instagram account, the actor says that “the greatest part of being aquaman is making children happy” and “spreading aloha.”

He explains that he “had a little time before work,” so he stopped by the children’s hospital and “met so many brave strong babies.”

Across the 10 photos that he posted of himself visiting with the patients at the hospital, the actor has a big smile across his face in each one. He hung out with the kids and their families, signed autographs, and even arm wrestled one boy for Aquaman’s trident.

“All my aloha to the families,” Momoa said.
