Ryan Reynolds is one proud papa.

The Deadpool star opened up to E! News on the red carpet of GQ's Men of the Year Party at Chateau Marmont Thursday and gushed about his two daughters, James Reynolds and name-yet-to-be-revealed Reynolds. When asked how James is acclimating to life as a big sister, Reynolds told us, "Absolutely, it's her calling. She's great at it."

Seeing sisterly bonding at such a young age has made him and wife Blake Lively incredibly happy. "I love it," he added.

Reynolds has opened up about James' big sister role before, telling eTalk's Ben Mulroney that he can't get enough of watching the siblings in action. "It's really kind of profound," he said. "I just love watching my older daughter take care of the newborn. That's been kind of neat to see."

Similar to their firstborn, both Reynolds and Lively are trying to keep their newborn's name a secret out of sake for her privacy. But that doesn't stop the funnyman from cracking a few jokes. 

When Blake was pregnant with James in 2014, Ryan joked he wanted to name his firstborn Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds. "When I ran it up the flagpole with my wife, it was resoundly rejected," he said. As for Baby No. 2's name, the actor joked, "I had the same name except all the letters in the name being silent—which, again, was confusing for everyone, especially me."

Without revealing her name, Ryan added, "We settled on the right one."

Meanwhile, Reynolds also talked to us about what it was like to land the cover of GQ and even gave a quick tease about Deadpool 2. To find out what he had to say about the highly anticipated sequel, watch the video!
