Ryan Reynolds is basically the cutest new dad ever.

The actor has opened up about his and wife Blake Lively’s daughter – who we believe is called James – and her strange ideas about sleep.

During his appearance on* The Tonight Show* last night, Ryan joked: "Our baby in particular is, we think, allergic to sleep... We think that she thinks she's protecting us from the sleep monsters. Like, 'Oh, I've got to keep them up or the sleep monsters will get them'. God."

Sharing his secret for getting her to sleep, he said: "The trick I try to use is that Baby Einstein stuff, but for me, that's like horse tranquilliser. I could go down on a lit stove. You could push me out of an airplane, and I, yeah, and the weirdest dreams."

The actor admitted that his daughter has him "wrapped around her finger". He also described fatherhood as "the best" adding: "I am a slave to the rhythm... I can't wait. It's just going to be teatime every day with her."


Oh, and while he was on The Tonight Show, Ryan played Egg Russian Roulette with host Jimmy Fallon. Let’s have a watch of that, shall we?
