Watch: Ryan Reynolds Opens Up About Welcoming Baby No. 4

When it comes to parenting, Ryan Reynolds is putting in maximum effort.

The Deadpool star shared insight into his growing family with Blake Lively while appearing at the 2023 Canadian Screen Awards, where he was honored with the Humanitarian Award. 

Though going from two to three kids was admittedly a "huge jump" for the couple, Ryan shared that it was actually was "less so" when he and the Gossip Girl alum welcomed their fourth baby—whose name and sex had not been revealed—earlier this year.

"I cannot speak for my wife, but it's just from what I've observed," Ryan—who also shares daughters James, 8, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3, with Blake—told ET Canada. "We love it. We would be idiots to do this again if we didn't love it."

In fact, the 46-year-old noted that he and Blake, 36, had always wanted a big family given how they both grew up with siblings. "I come from four. Blake comes from five," Ryan explained. "Both of us are the youngest."
