Update: Ryan Reynolds Opens Up About Youngest Daughter, Betty

Continuing his press run of being interviewed by kids, Ryan Reynolds has opened up about his youngest daughter.

Days after his interview with Mario Lopez's two children - where he discussed how much he loves 'being a Girl Dad' (which you can read more about below) - the father-of-three was put under the spotlight by an Entertainment Tonight reporter's child, Mack Cohen.

Mack asked Reynolds who out of his 'real-life pack' is his favourite person to hang out with: 'I have a new baby, she's a little over a year now. I really like hanging out with her, it's fun watching her grow up.'

Reynolds is father to three daughters with Lively, his eldest James 5, then four-year-old Inez and their one-year-old, who is believed to be called Betty (following a dedication on Taylor Swift's album).

Mack then stretched his journalistic instincts slightly further by candidly asking the new Wrexham football club owner if he likes the size of his pack as it is, or if he wants to expand it.

'Woah,' laughed Reynolds. 'I think it's a pretty good size right now but I appreciate the bait, Mack.'

Original story 16/11/20: Ryan Reynolds Discusses Parenting With Blake Lively And Why He Loves Being A ‘Girl Dad'

Ryan Reynolds has opened up about parenting his three daughters with his wife, Blake Lively.

The actor recently spoke to Gia and Dominic Lopez, the children of presenter and Saved By The Bell alum Mario Lopez (who - if we're honest - might put him out of a TV job soon), and discussed raising his own kids.

The kids asked Reynolds what makes him the 'ultimate Girl Dad' to which he replied: 'I love being a girl Dad. I have three daughters which I never in a million years would have imagined. I have three brothers... for me to have three daughters is just such a ride and I love every second of it.'

Reynolds then explained how he and Lively approach parenting, ensuring they never 'split up' despite their hectic work loads and schedules, which can require them to be anywhere in the world at a given moment (pre-Covid, of course).

'I try to be as present as possible,' the Canadian actor said. 'We don't split up. I shoot movies and my wife shoots movies and we travel all over the place and we just all go together. That's been the best part of it, we really don't spend a lot of time apart. I get to spend a lot of time with my girls.'

The children also asked The Croods actor if his wife and children are like superheroes and would save the day like the female characters do in the film.

'No joke. They're the most capable people I know. If anything got crazy in my life they're the first people I would lean on. They're calm, they have wisdom and strength,' he added.
