Ryan Reynolds is not only a great actor but also a father. The Deadpool actor is known for his sense of humor mixed with action-packed movies. The actor tried to work in Superhero movies like Green Lantern and X-Men previously but did not find much luck. What he did find was the love of his life on the shoots while playing Hal Jordan in the DC movie.
Reynolds was previously married to Lucy actress Scarlett Johansson for three years until 2011. But sparks flew when Ted met and married the Gossip Girls actress in 2012, and they have been together ever since. Together, they had three daughters, with a fourth baby on the way. In an interview, he opened up about fatherhood, and his take on it.
How Ryan Reynolds approaches fatherhood
Reynolds is undoubtedly one of the most successful actors in Hollywood today. But the proud father is also a well-known family man. During a 2015 interview with GQ, he said, “The one piece of advice I would say is: Don’t listen to any advice. Because there’s nothing you can do to prepare for it.” Also adding, “You just try not to be a complete pile of sh*t and just be there for them”. The entertainer described how nothing can prepare you for fatherhood, and he definitely did not know anything about it.
Blake Lively had given birth to a daughter in December 2014, whom they named James Reynolds. This was followed by Inez (2016), and Betty Reynolds (2019). Although the duo was inexperienced at parenting before, they did everything themselves. Ryan Reynolds even patted himself on the back, being surprised at himself for being patient. Today, he and Lively are expecting their fourth child together.
The actor and Wrexham owner have always been open about his rough relationship with his father. But the Canadian actor looks up to his brothers, who are great fathers. He strives to be the same, although he agrees that you do not need examples. The actor remains excited and in anticipation of his fourth child now.
