Just when you thought your crush on this celebrity dad couldn't get any bigger, it's about to! While visiting Harvard University to accept the Hasty Pudding Theatricals 2017 Man of the Year award, actor Ryan Reynolds shared two parenting truths he's quickly learned in just his few brief years as a dad -- and his revelations are both super-sweet and so relatable.

The father of two girls -- James, 2, and Ines, 4 months -- was candid about the cuteness that's apparently running rampant in the adorable household he created with his wife, Blake Lively. 

"Just seeing my older daughter be so infatuated with our younger daughter, who's 4 months old -- seeing her kiss her and hug her and hold her and do all those things, those kinda crush me," he said. Then, in his trademark deadpan, he added, "Whereas they might put anyone else to sleep. But for me, that's pretty cool."

Ha! So true. When you bring a new baby into your home, you never quite know how that older sibling will react. When that former only child embraces a new brother or sister with love, it's pure magic!

While the hunky 40-year-old has starred in his share of film adaptations of beloved comic books, the Deadpool star revealed that he doesn't get a whole ton of time for carefree leisure reading at home these days  -- or at least not when it comes to comics.

"I have two kids under two and I feel like somebody in my house would shoot me if I were sitting around reading comic books when I could be doing something constructive," he joked.

We love that Ryan knows exactly what he needs to be doing to keep both his wife and his little ladies happy. 

It seems like family truly comes first for Reynolds, who had his beautiful family by his side as he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
