“Let’s go Raptors, let’s go!” isn’t something you’d expect Grey’s Anatomy star Giacomo Gianniotti to be chanting on camera, however in real-life surgical intern Andrew DeLuca is a huge sports fan. The actor’s Toronto upbringing has given him love not just for the Raptors, but for the Maple Leafs and Blue Jays. Last night, his Instagram proved that his support of the teams goes further than just catching games when he’s in the city, or hopping on the bandwagon during the playoff season.

He shared how enthusiastic he is when it comes to watching games at home all the way in Los Angeles.

Gianniotti’s wife, makeup artist Nichole, posted a video on her Instagram story that featured the two of them decked out in their Raptors gear while watching the team’s most recent game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Nichole herself adorned a Raptors cap while Gianniotti was sporting their iconic black and red jersey. They also happened to be cheering and clapping along with the sounds of the crowd coming from their television.

The Instagram story was captioned, “giacomo_gianniotti is happy watching the game” and when the actor shared the short clip on his story he added the caption, “I have the best wife” and also tagged the Raptors account.

Although the Raptors suffered a loss against the opposing team, it was only excitement shown on video for the married couple.

Gianniotti is currently in LA filming season 16 of Grey’s Anatomy but recently made a trip up to Toronto where he caught a game with some friends and family.

His love for the sports team became clear last year when for weeks he dedicated his Instagram to the team, and more specifically former player Kawhi Leonard, during the playoffs.

He also joined the thousands of people who lined downtown Toronto after the team won the championships last season.

You can catch more of Giacomo Gianniotti as Dr. DeLuca Thursday nights on CTV.
