Ryan Reynolds Opens Up About Being a Father of Three Girls

Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds

When Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds welcomed their third child into the world months ago, they shared that yes, it was another girl. And now, in a new interview, Ryan's opening up about being a father to three girls -- and of course, it sounds like he's already loving it.

... not that we can blame him. From what we've seen of his kids, they're all pretty adorable! 

  • In an interview with 'Today,' Ryan revealed that he'd have it "no other way" than being surrounded by women at home.

    Baby number three -- whose name has yet to be disclosed -- joins Blake and Ryan's older daughters, James, almost 5, and Inez, 3. 

    "I love it. It's incredible," he said, adding that his daughters are part of his plan to "wipe men off of the face of the earth." 

    Yep, that's typical Ryan!

  • Ryan also shared that having three kids is not without its struggles. 

    "Leaving the house is getting harder and harder," he said. "It gets a lot harder when they ask, 'Where are you going? When are you coming home? Why are you leaving me?'"

    We can imagine. Some parents have a hard enough time leaving their kids behind to go to the grocery store, but if Ryan Reynolds is leaving for weeks or months to work on a new project, it has to be totally heartbreaking! 

  • Unfortunately, he didn't share his baby's name ... as hard as as the 'Today' hosts might tried to get it out of him.

    The celeb dad joked that they hadn't come up with a name yet, adding that they wanted a name made of all silent letters so the kid would "have something to push against in life." 


    He's keeping this particular secret airtight. But since we know James and Inez's names, we don't doubt that Blake and Ryan will spill about their third kiddo when they're ready. 

  • We're ready for photos of his family of five.

    It could be a long wait, though, so in the meantime, we'll just have to get comfy and admire the photos we've already seen of Blake and Ryan with their older daughters.

    We love how much Ryan loves being a dad, though. Those girls are lucky to have him!
