Dads say the darndest things. The star of the upcoming Marvel blockbuster, Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds just made my day. The actor and recent father of a beautiful baby girl with actress Blake Lively, named James. What? My daughter’s name is Michal (pronounced Michael), so say something – LOL.
Okay, I will share a few fatherhood quotes from Reynolds. I died after the first one.
“I used to say to her (MY WIFE), ‘I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you.’ And then the second I looked in that baby’s eyes, I knew in that exact moment, if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby.”
“Everyone thinks their baby is a genius. People find it delightfully refreshing when I tell them, ‘My baby? Totally average. Like, 100 percent average.'”
“If anything else woke up every 45 minutes during the night demanding to see my wife’s breasts, you kill it. [But with] a baby, you’re like, ‘Wahoo!'”
“It’s amazing that you can be that exhausted and that happy at the same time.”
