Ryan Reynolds opens up about fatherhood
|September 21, 2015 Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds|
Ryan was recently interviewed about his new role as a father to his son James and how he is adjusting to life. Here are a few excerpts of his adorable responses.
Do you think you are the father you hope to be?
"I think I am, yeah. I can't say I had an easy relationship with my father, and I can't say my brothers did either, but I look at each of my older brothers, and they're all fathers, and they're all great fathers. So I had some good examples. But I don't think you really necessarily need examples. You just try to not be a complete pile of sh*t and just be there for them. You know, I like it: I mean that in the heaviest context. I genuinely like it. I like being a father. I like having a daughter. I would like to have more kids. You know, it seems to suit me pretty well."
What have you learnt about yourself since becoming a father?
"There are a million clichés that are just true. I get why parents have that sort of predisposition to talk about their child as if they're the only people that have ever copulated and pumped out a kid. I understand that. I don't f*cking fall victim to it, because, especially celebrities, when they talk about their kid, they talk about their kid like they're the Chosen One, or they're the only people who have ever had a child. . . . Every time I talk about my kid in public, I'm generally talking about how average she is. But at home, I'm like, 'You're a genius! Oh, my God! You just took a sh*t in your diaper that came out as a perfect musical note!'"
How do you feel about your childhood friend trying to sell photos of your son, James?
"A guy that I'd known for my whole life, one of my closest friends growing up, he had been shopping pictures of my baby around. I kind of got in front of it, which is good. But it was a slightly dark period. A bad couple of weeks. Somebody I grew up with. Somebody I've known, who's been one of my closest friends, for 25 years. . . . It was like a death. It was like one of those devastating things to find out. It's just, 'Oh, well, now I'm never going to see you or talk to you again, unfortunately.' That's kind of how it worked out."
What about the paparazzi trying their hands at getting the photos?
"The whole thing becomes so absurd that all you can do is laugh about it and just go, 'This isn't the real world. This isn't how real things work.' But it happens to be happening right now. And it will pass. And it does. It passes."
Finally, watch how Ryan Reynolds is thrown the challenge of assembling an Ikea crib. And honestly, he is terrible at it, while being hilarious of course, which gives us all hope that celebs are just like us!
