When Ryan Reynolds and wife Blake Lively became parents to baby daughter James in 2014, well, the world gained one more soul and the parenting community gained one more source of fantastic parenting humor! When they added a second daughter, Ines, to the mix last year, things got even FUNNIER! Reynolds is already well-known on Twitter for being hilarious, and becoming a dad has brought another fabulous angle to his funny tweets. Check out some of my favorites below!
On parenting aptitude:
Nothing better than spending an entire morning staring into my baby daughter’s eyes, whispering, “I can’t do this”.

On parental dedication:
I’d walk through fire for my daughter. Well not FIRE, because it’s dangerous. But a super humid room. But not too humid, because my hair. — Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) September 11, 2015
Keepin’ it real…
My daughter’s only 6 months old and already drawing. I’d hang it on the fridge but honestly, it’s absolute garbage.

On baby fashion:
LOVE dressing my daughter in baby clothes. The itsy-bitsy pink pajamas. The tiny white socks. The black leather mask. Cuteness overload! — Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 13, 2015
On keeping your kids humble:
I’m teaching my daughter that the sun goes down each night because it’s mad at her. Probably gonna write a book on parenting at some point.

On parenting expertise:
On Fathers Day, my daughter smiled at me. It was all the gift I needed as I packed a bag and left for 6 years to write a book on parenting. — Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 21, 2015
On one of the BIGGEST struggles of parenthood:
Selecting a lower back tattoo for an infant is easy. Finding someone willing to do the work is challenging. https://t.co/8IcMRo21fw

On keeping your kids’ childhood MAGICAL:
Went to Disneyland because my daughter's obsessed with Mickey Mouse. She was so excited when I got home and told her.

On the future probability of more Reynolds/Lively siblings:
No matter which kids book I read to my screaming baby on an airplane, the moral of the story is always something about a vasectomy.

And finally, on the CONSTANT challenges of finding good child care:
Tinder isn't a babysitting app. Apologies to Crystal and Janine for the misunderstanding.

Thanks for the laughs, Papa Reynolds! I think you should at LEAST make a flipbook of all these! Hashtag making memories, dude!
