Exciting News for Ryan Reynolds
'Deadpool' Sequel Is Already in the Works

Ryan Reynolds has just attained a massive milestone in his life: Sexiest Dad Alive.

People dubbed the Deadpool actor the honor in their latest issue, in which he says jokingly, “Having a daughter was a dream come true for me. I would have made a terrible king.”

Reynolds and wife Blake Lively welcomed their first child together back in December 2014. They named her James, after Reynolds’ late father, but he also nicknamed her “Shrimpie.”

In fact, he was super excited to be having a girl rather than a boy. “I never admitted it out loud, to myself or my wife, but I really wanted a little girl,” he says. “It’s the best.”

 The 39-year-old actor himself is the youngest of four boys, commenting he was “less a sibling and more of a moving target.” Nevertheless, fatherhood looks excellent on him, and he knows it.

“I don’t have to prepare to be wrapped around my daughter’s finger,” he says. “I have been wrapped around her little finger since the day she plopped out into this world.”

Deadpool comes out in theaters this Friday, Feb. 12.
