Dave Bautista is known for not holding back on Twitter, but he recently had a flirty exchange with a fan on the social media platform that left fans blushing.
Bautista quoted the fans tweet on his own account, adding a cheeky warning to the young woman. The actor joked in his Twitter response that his "babies usually tip the scales around 9 lbs," which is unsurprising considering his size.
I should probably let you know that my babies usually tip the scales around 9 lbs and asthma runs in my family. Thoughts or concerns? 🤓 https://t.co/PDBmVoFgFZ— Dave Bautista (@DaveBautista) April 17, 2019
He added in the tweet, "and asthma runs in my family." The fan wasn't deterred, however with her response.
"I have wide enough hips and modern medicine has many marvels," she replied.
Bautista was, at least jokingly, game to make her baby dreams a reality.
"[Baby makin' time]!!! I'm gonna go grab a couple cases of alkaline water and a hand held mirror. Don't ask! Start stretching! ..... god this escalated fast," Bautista wrote on Twitter.
The fan continued the hilarious exchange in a later tweet, revealing that she attended a screening of Bautista's upcoming film, Stuber, in Philadelphia, and couldn't get enough of the "chemistry" between the actor and his co-star, Kumail Nanjiani. She ended her Twitter message with, "ps dave and i are expecting!!!" and a pregnant woman emoji.
"I'm predicting a 9lb [pikachu] with asthma. To be named Kave," he replied on Twitter, merging his and Nanjiani's name together for his non-existent future child.
Stuber is a cop comedy about a detective — Bautista's character — who recruits his Uber driver, played by Nanjiani, for "an unexpected night of adventure," according to IMDb. It's expected release date is July 12.
It's unclear whether Bautista and the fan actually had the opportunity to meet during the screening. Still, fans enjoyed their back-and-fourth on Twitter. The pair won't be sparking up a romance, or having any children together, anytime soon though.0comments
