Just when I thought I couldn’t love Ryan Reynolds more, he goes and drop the most realist quote about parenthood and a dilemma many parents face: your child’s mom or your child?
I just spotted this meme on Instagram of a quote he made during an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman in February 2015 about his love for his daughter, James, with wife Blake Lively, whom they welcomed in December 2014.
“I used to say to [Blake], ‘I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you.’ I would say that to my wife.” he shared. “And the second I looked in that baby’s eyes, I knew in that exact moment that if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby.”
The Deadpool star and Blake are expecting their second child together.
