Ryan Reynolds is the Sexiest Dad Alive!

2016-02-11 15:00

Los Angeles - Ryan Reynolds has been crowned People magazine's Sexiest Dad Alive.

The Deadpool star, who has 13-month-old daughter James with wife Blake Lively, had his award recognised on Tuesday night's Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and the first-time father admitted he was shocked to have been awarded the title.

While Jimmy showed Ryan the magazine's cover with his face on it, the hunk joked: "What?! I mean come on! I mean scientifically speaking, what's sexier than a man that fornicates, produces children and then looks surprised about it."

Ryan revealed his daughter is now "walking and talking", and told fans his family is "doing great".

The 39-year-old actor - who has three older brothers - admitted to the publication that he was really keen to have a daughter because he feels comfortable "being surrounded by oestrogen".

He said:"Having a daughter was a dream come true for me, I would have made a terrible king.

"I never admitted it out loud, to myself or my wife, but I really wanted a little girl. It's the best.

"I don't have to prepare to be wrapped around my daughter's finger, I have been wrapped around her little finger since the day she plopped out into this world."

Ryan recently defended the name of his little one, insisting James - the name of his late father - is not a "weird" moniker for a baby girl.

He said: "We named her after my father.

"In the spectrum of weird celebrity baby names, I feel like we're not really breaking any new ground here.

"It's not like Summer Squash Meadow Lark, or something. I also thought of all the letters being silent in her name, so it would be just be 'haaaa'."
