Ryan Reynolds loves being a ‘girl dad’
On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Ryan Reynolds confessed to hoping for a girl, their fourth time around. He loves every bit of being surrounded by his girls. Reynolds said he does not miss the masculine energy but rather enjoys it,
“I do not miss masculine company at all. Really, most men tend to be the architects of someone’s demise. So, it’s fine. I like just being here with the girls. I like doing the girl stuff.”
“No joke, they’re the most capable people I know. If anything got crazy or scary in my life, they’re the first people that I would lean on.”
He further concluded,
“I love being a girl dad. I have three daughters, which I never in a million years would imagine. I come from all boys, I have three older brothers. So for me to have three daughters has been such a ride and I love every second of it.–I’d have it no other way.”
Thus, he was a bit stressed about how he would handle raising a son. Raising daughters came to him easily, the chances of having a boy excited but at the same time scared him equally. But at the end of the day, he believes his wife would make everything right and help him through the journey.

Being a parent of three is a handful job. According to Blake Lively,
“He does love the dirty work. He’s great and he’s so fun about it,”
She recalled a funny instance,
“We were changing diapers and he said, ‘You’ve got to get rid of it!’–I said, ‘OK!’ And he goes, ‘No, not the diaper, the child.'”
According to the star himself, he has three “wild” daughters. He said,
“I’m a parent of three girls. They’re wild. I think they have rabies sometimes”
So he likes to go with the flow, firstly, he does not like to force conservative ideas on his kids and lets them decide their own actions. He said,
“I try not to push gender normative ideas on my kids as they’re born, but each one, when they came out that chute, just really wanted to make dresses,–They wanted to dress in hot pink all day so that’s what I do.”
He also has interesting anecdotes about making mistakes, he advises his kids not to “waste his mistakes”. Reynolds says mistakes have a huge part in the learning process and it is quite easy to get swallowed by the shame of it, but in the end, the realization and the urge to rectify is all that matters. To conclude, Blake Lively puts it as
“He is my best friend, and he’s just the best father in the whole world.”
All in all, he loves his family to bits and would not have it any other way.
