Ryan Reynolds was recently named the “Sexiest Dad Alive,” just over a year after he and his wife, Blake Lively, welcomed their daughter James into the world. According to People Magazine, Reynolds opened up about becoming a dad and he is simply smitten with his little girl!
“Having a daughter was a dream come true for me. I would have made a terrible king,” the Deadpool star said. “I never admitted it out loud, to myself or my wife, but I really wanted a little girl,it’s the best,” he added.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have chosen to shelter James from the world — the public has yet to see this baby’s face — and they are very hands-on parents. According to Ryan’s interview, the couple shuffles their respective work schedules around to ensure that one of them is with James at all times.
It’s no surprise, of course, that Ryan is so in love with his daughter.
“I don’t have to prepare to be wrapped around my daughter’s finger. I have been wrapped around her little finger since the day she plopped out into this world,” Reynolds said.
According to E! News, Ryan Reynolds, like many dads, would do anything for his baby girl. And while he and Blake may not be too forthcoming when it comes to chatting about their 1-year-old, Ryan seems more than fine gushing about the wonderful experience that he has had as a father so far.
“I love it. I truly worship that kid. It’s terrible. She has me so far wrapped around her finger it’s dumb. She says ‘dada’ and I will walk through a cement wall to get to her,” he said. Is that not the sweetest thing ever?!
