"I'm just a diaper changing facility hooked up to a life support system, but my wife, she's breakfast, lunch and dinner. She's a human (diner) Denny's all day long... and it never ends for her. She's the most beautiful Denny's you've ever seen though, I guarantee it." Actor Ryan Reynolds is in awe of his wife Blake Lively as she settles into motherhood. The couple welcomed a baby girl in December (14).
"I have respect for cats, but cats don't really like me... The cat did not love me... I picked up Mr. Whiskers once and it was like a Swiss army knife and a throwing star combined. I had claws everywhere, I was bleeding out of my arm, my chest, I don't even know how he got the back of my leg. It was crazy, completely crazy." Ryan Reynolds did not get along with his furry co-star in new comedy thriller The Voices, in which he plays a serial killer who engages in long conversations with his talking dog and cat.
"I'm not one for vomiting declarations of sentiment across the airwaves, but when we had that baby, I fell more in love with my wife than I had ever been in my entire life, I couldn't believe it... I used to say (to 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, that if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby!" Actor Ryan Reynolds gushes about his wife Blake Lively and their new baby girl, who was born in December (14).
"I never know how to play that because I'm in the public eye and I don't know whether to just thrust this child into the public eye... People said that the name was Violet, which is a very pretty name, but that's Ben Affleck's daughter's name. We'd never steal another celebrity's baby name, so we're going with Shiloh! No... We have a name, but I don't want to say it in, like, a media context. I tell everyone I meet, so it'll come out... It's a family name."
New dad Ryan Reynolds jokes about his baby daughter's name, which has yet to be officially announced. The actor and his wife, Blake Lively, welcomed their first child in December (14).
"When we shot Green Lantern, nobody auditioning for the role of Green Lantern was given the opportunity to read the script, because the script didn't exist. I'm not complaining about it - it was an opportunity of a lifetime, and if I were to go back and retrace my steps, I would probably do everything the exact same way... I've since learned that a lot of superhero movies don't really have a fully functioning draft of the screenplay ready until they're already well into shooting." Ryan Reynolds insists a bad script let down his superhero movie The Green Lantern.
"I don't sleep very much. It's great. It's wonderful. But my brain is elsewhere. It's still so new that it's hard to conceive being away for more than seven hours at a time. I had to go to Sundance (Film Festival) last week. I was more excited to get a good night's sleep." New father Ryan Reynolds was excited to get a brief respite from his daddy duties while promoting his new film The Voices at the annual movie event in Utah. The actor and his wife Blake Lively welcomed their first child in December (14).
"I gotta jump in and do all those sorts of things. I mean, I've even tried breastfeeding...! It's amazing that you can be that exhausted and that happy at the same time." Actor Ryan Reynolds jokes about life as a new dad after welcoming a baby girl with wife Blake Lively last month (Dec14).
"I've always wanted a big family. I also feel like my first child is going to be the oldest sibling to the next kid. You don't just raise your kids, your kids also raise each other." New mother Blake Lively is already planning for more kids after giving birth to her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds last month (Dec14).
"This is the happiest time in my life, and I could say that every day. I often feel like, 'I can't believe I'm experiencing this'. And that can be a big moment like my wedding day or a simple afternoon in front of the fire. I know how fortunate I am. And I'm excited to see the entire journey that my family is going to go on." New mother Blake Lively is thankful for all the blessings in her life. The actress welcomed her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds just before the New Year (01Jan15).
