Ryan Reynolds is opening up about becoming a father next year and says that he is prepared to deal with the diapers and diarrhea that come with a newborn.
“I don’t have a weak stomach,” the 38-year-old actor told People. “I’m good with diapers and diarrhea and all that kind of stuff because I have lots of nieces and nephews, so I’ve done it all before.”
“I’m just excited about having a buddy,” Ryan, who is expecting his first child with wife Blake Lively, added. “We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet, but whatever it is, you have this tether to reality that never goes away.”
“For a lot of new dads, you tend to dwell on the mistakes you don’t want to make,” Ryan continued. “I’m at that stage still where I’m focused primarily on being open and understanding and leaving a lot of room for error.”
