You have to love a man who has an acerbic wit, is all kinds of self-deprecating and looks really great in a unitard. Combine those beautiful qualities with him being a loving, devoted husband and awesome, caring dad and the teensy little fact that it’s, oh, Ryan Reynolds and it’s no wonder People just named him the Sexiest Dad Alive.
Reynolds was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon promoting Deadpool when the late-night host revealed the magazine cover to the shocked actor.
“What?! I mean, come on! I mean, scientifically speaking, what’s sexier than a man that fornicates, produces children and then looks surprised about it?” Reynolds joked about his cover shot.
Reynolds, who was once engaged to Alanis Morissette, and was previously married to Scarlett Johansson, has now found marital bliss with Blake Lively. The two are fiercely private when it comes to keeping their daughter, James, out of the spotlight, so much so that they weren’t even keen on anyone knowing her name.
And while he doesn’t talk too much about his wife or daughter, he did tell Fallon that they are “doing great” and that the 16-month-old is “walking [and] talking.”
We are definitely down with People‘s choice because the only thing sexier than Ryan Reynolds? Lots of Ryan Reynoldses.
