Ryan Reynolds Reflects on His Father's Death, Talks Baby James in 'Men's Health'

Ryan Reynolds shows off his muscled arms on the cover of Men’s Health magazine’s February 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 39-year-old Deadpool star had to share with the mag:

On his father James’ last moments before his death last year: “In my dad’s dying moments, we were making him laugh. We were all in there together, me and my brothers, just joking with him. And of course we end up busting each other’s chops. I recommended that the doctor raise Dad’s dose of Dilaudid in order to make my other brother more tolerable. It wasn’t a bad way to go. If I could have the same death as my father, I would do it right now.”

On his daughter James: “I still check on her in the middle of the night and put my fingers under her nose just to make sure she’s still breathing. Is that insane? I feel like it might be a little bit insane.”

On becoming a dad: “During those first six months, it’s amazing that you find a way to keep going. Just the lack of sleep, and the hallucinations. F**k peyote. You want to trip balls? Have a kid and see what it’s like to be awake for a month straight. You’ll have moments where you’re like, ‘Did I really ride a unicorn to work? I’m pretty sure I didn’t, but I don’t know. Was Willie Nelson cradling my testicles this morning? It probably wasn’t him, but let me check his tour schedule just to be sure.’ ”
