It seems Ryan Reynolds is doing everything he can to keep his three daughters entertained amid the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. The Deadpool star dished the adorable ways he’s having fun while cooped up at home with James, 5, Inez, 3 and his newborn baby girl.
“This morning we made dresses out of tissue paper, which was fun for them,” the 43-year-old hunk shared while video chatting with late-night host Stephen Colbert on Wednesday, April 1, noting he tries “not to push sort of gender normative ideas on my kids as they’re born.”
“But each one as soon as they came out of the chute, they wanted to make dresses, they wanted to dress in hot pink all day,” he explained, joking his sweet youngsters are “developing the skills that will take us into the new world.”
The Golden Globe nominee — who shares his sweet brood with longtime wife Blake Lively — told Stephen that he’s actually enjoying being the only man in the house. “I do not miss masculine company at all,” he explained. “Really, most men tend to just be the architects of someone’s demise. So it’s fine. I like just being here with the girls. I like doing the girls’ stuff.”
Besides waltzing around the house in tissue paper gowns, Ryan revealed other ways he and the Gossip Girl alum, 32, are making the most of the time with their family.
“We’re doing a lot of homeschooling,” the Aviation Gin owner said. “We’re lucky enough to have a little, tiny garden, so we’re learning a little bit about gardening. We’re trying to make this an educational experience, he went on, “but I’m mostly drinking.” LOL!
Ever since Blake and Ryan — who tied the knot in 2012 — welcomed their third child in summer 2019, fans have been dying to know how they’re continuing to juggle their careers with parenthood. Even before being forced to quarantine in their home amid the global pandemic, a source close to the famous lovebirds revealed why they felt “blessed” to expand their brood.
“Running around after three young kids isn’t easy for anyone, but Ryan and Blake are amazing parents and make it work,” the insider exclusively told Closer Weekly in December 2019. “It’s a joint effort!”
