Ryan Reynolds Admits Baby James Likes Blake Lively More Than Him


Seven and a half months after welcoming baby James into this world, Ryan Reynolds knows where his daughter's allegiances lie: with wife and mom Blake Lively. During an appearance last night on Conan, the Deadpool actor cracked jokes about why his little one prefers the Age of Adeline star over him.

"Right now she's starting to say momma, but that's an unfair advantage — it turns out that breasts are actually a life support system. And the child seems to gravitate towards the breasts," he quipped to Conan." I'm just the breast-less a*#hole walking around the room getting in her sightline every once and awhile."

To bring the point home, he even went so far to say that James's first words were quite severe. "It's all about mom," he added. "I am dead to her. That's her first words ironically: 'You're dead to me.'"

All kidding aside, he said that the birth was incredible. And that Lively was such a trooper, she was cracking jokes as she was delivering the baby. "I'm not gonna lie to you, I saw things. But it was amazing," he explained. "My wife is the real, she is a mercenary. At one point during the delivery the doctor's phone went off and she goes 'Oh no, go ahead, take a personal call.'"

We can only imagine the jokes Reynolds starts cracking when James beings potty training or starts dating. Until then he better work on getting her to say "dad" before it's too late!
