Ryan Reynolds struggles with baby cot

He may be an acting superstar, but Ryan Reynolds has proved that celebrity status makes him no different to any other first time father


The ‘Deadpool’ actor has shared with his fans the struggles of early fatherhood.

In a video for GQ magazine, the 38-year-old took on the task of putting together a flat pack cot.

And, in true dad style, he decided to take on the task without using the instructions.

The video shows him quickly running in to trouble, losing screws and struggling to fix the sides together.

He can be heard calling IKEA’s customer service line for help.

Ultimately the actor gives up, resorting to duct taping the cot together before walking away.

It seems parenthood hasn’t been all fun and games for the new dad.

Recently, Reynolds spoke out about the difficulties of keeping his family life private after a close friend tried to sell photos of his daughter James to the press.

He said of the betrayal that: “It was like a death. It was like one of those devastating things to find out.”

Earlier this year, Reynolds came under criticism for carrying his daughter wrong in her baby carrier.

Reynolds is married to Blake lively and their daughter James was born in December last year.
