So when the Deadpool star was asked about his daughter James‘ “unusual” name on Good Morning Britain on Friday, the 39-year-old hunk said:
“In the spectrum of weird celebrity baby names, I feel like we’re not really breaking any new ground here. I mean, I didn’t call her Summer Squash Meadow Lark, or something.”
Ryan went on to explain that they picked the name as a tribute to his dad, James C. Reynolds who died last year after a 20-year battle with Parkinson’s disease.
He added jokingly:
“I also thought of all the letters being silent in her name, so it would be just be ‘Haa.'”
Serena Van Der Woodsen Blake has a name that’s traditionally given to a boy and she’s pretty much the coolest person ever, so.
The proud poppa also took the time to share an adorable update on his first child:
“She’s teething at the moment. I love being a father. I don’t want to be one of those celebs who talks about being a parent like they’re the only person in the world who has ever done it. It’s the most common thing in the world but the most profound. It’s super fun. I just love it.”
Awww! Be still our hearts.
What an adorable family.
