Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively welcomed their daughter James Reynolds into the world in December last year and only now, has Ryan revealed what scares him the most about parenthood.

No, it's not dirty nappies, the naughty toddler-stage or the dreaded teenage years. He fears that time is moving too quickly. Bless him.


The Green Lantern actor told AOL Build: "Yeah, you suddenly feel the inexorable amount of time go by.

"There's nothing that ages you faster than having a kid, and that's not because you wake up in the middle of the night every five seconds because someone's got to shit themselves — it's really because you're looking at this person and time is just flying by, like how is it possible that you're already half a year old?

"And when most people are given at best 90 of these years on this planet, you start to look at it like that, it freaks you out a little bit. You start to make the most of the time you have with this person."

Ryan is possibly the cutest dad. Don't worry bud, James is *only *half a year old.

"We have long hours but we also get breaks, and unlike most people who get one week off a year, I might have three months off which is so nice, those three months used to drive me insane when I was a young buck, single, and carefree, but now I just want to be with my daughter so yeah. I'll do anything to be with my wife and baby," Ryan added.

Anywho regardless of being slightly freaked out, Ryan is having the best time being a father to bubba James.

"There have been times where I woke up, literally had no idea I had been walking for five minutes," he told E! News.

"But you love it. You wake up in the middle of the night, you got a big stupid smile on your face. I was telling someone else that. Anything else that woke you up every 45 minutes, you'd kill it. But when it's a baby, it's the best thing that ever happened to you."

Aww. Just aww, you big soppy pot.
