Ryan Reynolds Shares Funny Tales of Parenthood

Ryan Reynolds opens up about the rather hilarious and sometimes embarrassing tales of fatherhood with baby daughter James.

The 38-year-old actor appeared on US chat show Live with Kelly and Michael, and shared some rather hilarious moments of parenthood.

While many would associate the words handsome and sexy with Ryan, the Hollywood star considers himself to be the embarrassing dad.

Ryan shared with Kelly and Michael a rather hilarious tale of when he had to examine baby daughter James when she came down with a fever.

"I was told to check her temperature... through the rectum, which for me it was like... 'Noooo, it can't be. There's a mouth! There's an armpit. There's gotta be something!'" he joked.

"It was terrifying, though. It all went well, though.”

Ryan then said he was worried he’d be walking her down the aisle and she’d whisper, “I know what you did.”

"She’s gonna watch this interview in 15 years’ time and be all, “Nooooooooo, Daaaaaaaaaaad, noooooo.”

Ryan also shared baby James' first word with the chat show hosts. Having worried that it would end up being "f*ck", he was relieved when it was "mama" instead.

"What my wife (Blake Lively) doesn't realise is the baby calls me 'Mama' too. Seriously. I literally had to sit her down and tell her that penises don't work that way," Ryan said. "She understands... she gets it."
