Ryan Reynolds is a Diarrhea Pro, Good with Diapers

Fatherhood is not going to trip up actor Ryan Reynolds. Blake Lively’s husband says his nieces and nephews have helped prepare him for parenthood.

Reynolds told People magazine, “I don’t have a weak stomach. I’m good with diapers and diarrhea and all that kind of stuff because I have lots of nieces and nephews, so I’ve done it all before.”

What is he looking forward to with his impending fatherhood?

“I’m just excited about having a buddy,” he said. “We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet, but whatever it is, you have this tether to reality that never goes away.”

Ryan noted that while a lot of new fathers “dwell on the mistakes” they want to avoid making, he is willing to just enjoy the experience and learn as he goes along.

He explained: “For a lot of new dads, you tend to dwell on the mistakes you don’t want to make.

“I’m at that stage still where I’m focused primarily on being open and understanding and leaving a lot of room for error.”
