Ryan Reynolds talks daughter James: 'We're getting a lot of sounds'

First-time father Ryan Reynolds has spent the best part of four months back home in Vancouver filming the action film Deadpool and basking in the joys of parenthood with wife Blake Lively. While his girls are over in Bangkok (Blake is filming the movie All I See Is You), Ryan has been gushing about his six-month-old angel while promoting his latest movie Self/Less, which sees him teamed with Sir Ben Kingsley.

Ryan and Blake tied the knot in South Carolina in 2012.

We're getting a lot of sounds, nothing that sounds like discernible English at this point. I'm mocking her a lot,” joked Ryan during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael. “She’s sleeping through the night now. Six months is a nice age.”

Ryan and Blake, who tied the knot in 2012, became a family of three over the holidays in December and have kept a rather low profile ever since. They have yet to share any pictures of James, but both parents are keen to talk about their little one in interviews and on social media.


This past Father’s Day, the 38-year-old actor received some criticism after a photo showed the star posing with his daughter in what experts argued was an “unsafe manner.” Ryan has admitted that he now knows that James wasn’t properly strapped into her carrier and has learned from his misstep. “I'm a first time dad. And that is not the first mistake I've made. And I can guarantee it won't be the last," he told Today. "I had never used that particular carrier before so every other time it's been perfect."
