The Bachelor’s Ben Higgins Visits Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for Valentine’s Day

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NOTE: Please credit: ‘Video courtesy of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’

Love was in the air when Ben Higgins, star of ABC’s The Bachelor,
stopped by Children’s Hospital Los Angeles on Friday, February 12 to
join in on the Valentine’s Day celebrations.

It didn’t take long for word to spread that the handsome Colorado
resident, who’s currently looking for a mate on the hit reality dating
show, was in the house. Higgins, a true gentleman, made sure every
person he met received a red rose – his signature calling card on the
show.

“I give these to people I like,” he told patient Yvette Mollet, 10, as
he handed her a red rose and a small gift bag with a red heart-shaped
mylar balloon attached.

Higgins took time visiting with patients, families and staff on the
hospital’s fourth floor. He also passed out Valentine’s Day cards that
friends and supporters had sent to patients via the hospital’s online
Valentine’s Day card drive campaign. More than 21,000 cards were
printed, laminated and distributed hospital-wide by staff and volunteers
on Friday.

We invite you to enjoy
and share this video clip
of Bachelor Ben’s enchanting visit with
your audience. You’ll see that his presence had nurses’ heart racing and
young patients smiling. But not everything was rosy — there was a
moment when Ben got a little hot under the collar as Mollet, clearly
smitten, quizzed him about whether or not he was single. “I don’t see a
ring on your finger!” she quipped.

We hope you’ll agree Ben Higgins was the quintessential ‘Cupid’ for
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
