Ryan Reynolds’ sleep-deprived hallucinations

Ryan ReynoldsRyan Reynolds thought he “rode a unicorn to work” in the weeks after his daughter was born.

The Deadpool actor – who has 13-month-old James with wife Blake Lively – is amazed he was able to function for the first few months after he became a father because he was so sleep deprived, and admits his exhaustion caused him to “trip.”

He said: “During those first six months, it’s amazing that you find a way to keep going.

“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.”’

The 39-year-old star is devoted to his little girl but worries some of his habits are “insane.”

He told the new issue of Men’s Health magazine: “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.”

Despite his busy work schedule and family life, Ryan always finds the time to stay active.

He said: “I get depressed if I don’t move. I don’t necessarily need to have 400 pounds on my back in the squat rack and then take a picture of myself and send it out to my Twitter followers: ‘Part of the 400-pound club today.’

“I like to hike and go biking, that kind of thing. Get outside, move my body, get some fresh air pumping through my lungs. That’s my idea of a workout now.”

    Give it a friggin’ break will you. This generation and their child rearing woes is more than anyone should want to hear. Want to man up. Stop whinning.

    I appreciated the article and found it amusing. Considering he works night and day on locations and hopefully was/is very involved in raising his daughter, it was a good read and not negative like most articles out there. I’m 38 and about to have my first child (Due March 13) and I fear SIDS. It’s nice to read that even movie stars with all their money and assistants, have the same fears.
    It has nothing to do with child rearing, he was likely asked about his kids and this was his funny reply about his experience. You like celeb gossip so you are on this site. If not, then don’t read it.
