It’s clear that Ryan Reynolds loves his daughter very much. Very proud. Because he is so proud, he can’t imagine doing anything else with his life. Think about a situation where he was the father of a boy. In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, the actor who plays Deadpool said that when he was expecting his third daughter, the thought of having to raise boys made him “quietly terrified.”

Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively have raised three girls: James, who is 6 years old, Inez, who is 5 years old, and Betty, who is 2 years old. Which is exactly how he wanted it to be when the couple said they were having their third daughter in 2019.

“I would not have it any other way,” he told Access, explaining that growing up with three brothers gave him some ideas about what it might be like to raise boys. He said, “I wouldn’t have it any other way.” “When we had our youngest, I was quietly terrified it was gonna be a boy because I didn’t know, we didn’t know. I didn’t know anything but girls. I grew up with boys and I was constantly being thrown through walls when there was a perfectly good door 5 feet away.”

In fact, the actor is having so much fun taking care of his daughters that he just announced that he is going to take a break from acting to spend more time with his family. “I’m just trying to create a little bit more space for my family and time with them,” the dad of three explained earlier this month. “You know, you don’t really get that time back.”

Reynolds went from having a house full of boys to a house full of girls. This was a big change for him at first. But as time has gone on, he has come to realize that having daughters is one of the best things in his life. “I come from all boys. I have three older brothers. I’m the youngest of four boys, so for me to have three daughters has been such a ride,” the Red Notice actor said in 2020. “I love every second of it.”

To be fair to all sons, Reynolds may have been afraid of having sons because he had three brothers. But when everything is said and done, it looks like he was able to get the family he wanted. All daughters. Now try to imagine what would happen if they started throwing each other through walls. It would be the most shocking thing he has ever done.
