Ryan Reynolds speaks about fatherhood

Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds has spoken about his love of fatherhood

 

The Deadpool star became a dad for the first time in December 2014 to a baby girl called James, alongside wife Blake Lively.

In a recent interview with Good Morning Britain, hosts Ben Shepherd and Kate Garraway they asked the 39-year-old why he gave his daughter a name traditionally given to boys.

He revealed: “My father just passed away, but my daughter’s named after him.”

The actor also acknowledged the celebrity trend for unusual baby names, joking: “In the spectrum of weird celebrity baby names, I don’t really feel like we’re breaking new ground here. I didn’t call her Summer Squash Meadowlark.

“I also thought of all the letters being silent in her name, so it would be just be haaaa.”

Ryan’s dad, James C. Reynolds, passed away in October aged 74, following a 20-year battle with Parkinson’s.

Reynolds also said that he feels he is adapting to fatherhood well saying: “I love it, I love it.”

“She’s teething at the moment. I love being a father. I don’t want to be one of those celebs who talks about being a parent like they’re the only person in the world who has ever done it.”

The new father has also offered One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson some first-time dad advice.

When asked what guidance he had for him, Ryan said: “Buckle up stud, here goes. Now the real work begins.”

The 24-year-old became a dad in January to baby Freddie, his son with stylist Briana Jungwirth.

After the arrival of Freddie, proud new dad Louis tweeted saying: “Meet my little lad, Freddie.”

The singer has reportedly moved out to California to be close to his son and will be paying £10,000 in child support, amounting to £2million over his lifetime.
