Dad Crush Monday: Ryan Reynolds

He’s best known for his portrayal of the Green Lantern (where, incidentally, he met his beautiful wife Blake Lively) and Deadpool but when he’s not on screen Ryan Reynolds is one of the most lovable dads we’ve come across.

Ryan also recently caught our eye because his appearance at Taylor Swift’s Fourth of July party has had the Internet going crazy.  This photo (below) has become the source of numerous memes and the butt of many jokes, but the good-natured actor just took everything in his stride. His cool demeanour, sense of humour and love for his daughter makes him the perfect choice for this week’s dad crush:

Notoriously private about his personal life, he rarely posts photos about his family, and daughter James’ face has yet to be shown to the public. But when he brings his loved ones up, his posts have the unique ability to be both funny yet heartwarming at the same time.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom. You gave birth to me an excruciating 468 weeks late. I was 9. We were both so happy to be free.

As a kid, the only thing my brother loved more than taking me out for a cruise was returning home after nightfall. Alone.

The Canadian actor is obviously a family-oriented man, most evidently when he named his daughter James in honour of his father, who passed away not long before James was born.

Thumb wrestling isn't always fair. Curiously, my hand is the small one.

Fatherhood clearly suits Ryan well and he continues to wow us all in the style department. He was even named one of the Most Stylish Men Alive for 2016 by GQ. No letting go for this dad!

 

We love how he and Blake share a similar sense of humour — clearly the recipe for a good marriage.

This is Brutus. He's over 110 years old. He's telling me his life story. But in real time.

On a more serious note, Ryan supports numerous causes, proving that underneath his hunky exterior lies a generous heart. These causes include Make A Wish America, The Charlotte and Gwenyth Foundation to Cure Batten, and his is the new philanthropic ambassador for Eddie Bauer in partnership with American Forests.

But our favourite pic of him as got to be the one his doting wife Blake posted where he was babywearing baby James in celebration of his first Father’s Day this year. The pure look of bliss on his face makes us feel that James and the little one on the way will be two of the luckiest children with Ryan as a dad.
