New Dad Ryan Reynolds Compares a Good Night’s Sleep to Borderline Pornography

Ever experienced a time when you only managed a few hours of sleep yet still got up well and kicking for a new day, all the while imagining that you’re still asleep in bed? You’re not alone on that; take it from new dad Ryan Reynolds.

Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively welcomed the rather early arrival of their daughter around six weeks ago during the holidays. And like every hands-on parent in the world, Reynolds and Lively preferred not taking in a nanny for their daughter, and they have apparently just joined the sleepless group.


In an interview with USA Today on Monday, Feb 2, 2015, a rather bleary-eyed Reynolds told them that he hasn’t been getting much sleep, despite his busy schedule lately. He jokingly even called himself the sleep-deprived bloodless ghost of Ryan Reynolds.

“[Fatherhood’s] still so new that it’s hard to conceive being away for more than seven hours at a time. I had to go to Sundance this last week. I was more excited to get a good night’s sleep. It was borderline pornographic for me,” said Reynolds.

Wow, sounds like he really just wants to go to sleep, huh?

But, in an interview with Extra, Reynolds added that despite being sleep-deprived due to his attending to his baby’s needs, the experience was amazing. He admits that he thinks it’s weird that he faces the next day in a good mood even though he would wake up in the middle of the night for 45 times, but it was apparently fun for him.

“No, that’s not the name. I don’t want to get into that but I don’t know where that [news] came from,” said Reynolds, shotting down reports on his daughter name to be Violet. In the end, he still didn’t reveal what it really is nor at the very least give her nickname.
