As if he couldn't get ANY cuter or more doting, Ryan Reynolds proves he is the best (and funniest) husband yet again — the A-lister just revealed his tips for dads... in the delivery room!
The actor and father of (now!) two sat down with GQ recently and divulged his secrets of his blissful marriage to Blake Lively, which obviously includes his comical tips for dads-to-be when their wives are giving birth.
"Be in the room! You're not Don Draper. I think, be judicious with the photographs you take because, you know, a photo of your daughter crowning hanging on the refrigerator, that's not going to help anyone," he noted. "Your wife will never ever think it's funny if you tip your imaginary top hat and say, 'At your service!' — don't do that." Touché, touché. Although most ladies would agree that if Reynolds were at their service we'd probably allow him to play any imaginary game he wanted!
The Deadpool star continued, "You really want to realize that you're the least important thing in the room. It's gonna go: Your wife, your baby, the nurse, the doctor, the doula — if you have one, the air — God, the air. And when your wife asks you if everything is okay down there, just answer in the affirmative. Don't yell, "Better than ever!" It's good to know you know your place. Blake, you're a lucky lady!
The Canadian-born actor does speak from experience, to be fair. When it came to his first daughter's birth, he explained the scenario in a Conan interview about how it all went down, according to E! Online. "I was there in the delivery room. I mean, I was there for the conception of the child, so I thought the least I could do is be there in the delivery room. I'm not going to lie to you, I saw things. But, amazing!"
Even in the thick of the stress of labor and delivery, he said that Lively was a champion and total trooper. "At one point in the middle of the delivery, the doctor's cellphone went off and she said, 'Oh, no. Go ahead, take a personal call. Feel free.' She was cracking jokes in the delivery room," Reynolds said. "She may have been on drugs, but I don't ask personal questions."
Speaking of delivery rooms, the Canadian-born actor and his stunning 29-year-old wife just welcomed their second child into the world a few weeks ago, but have yet to announce the name of their little girl — staying true to their private ways. Earlier this month, however, Reynolds did let on that their new little one is another girl. The parents of two also have an almost two-year-old daughter, James.
So what's on the menu for the Thanksgiving holiday for this family of four? According to the 29-year-old mama of two, it's going to be pretty low-key. “Just cooking with family, cooking with cousins and little ones coming over, ya know,” she told People of her Thursday plans. “That’s about it, nothing too exciting.” Two babies and a hottie husband PLUS turkey? Sounds like a perfect Turkey Day to us.
