Ryan Reynolds has really gotten the hang of being a dad in the delivery room!
The “Deadpool” star, who recently welcomed baby No. 2 with wife Blake Lively, sat down with GQ as one of the publication’s “Men of the Year,” where he had some hilarious pointers for how to be most helpful when your loved one is giving birth.
“Be in the room, you’re not Don Draper,” the 40-year-old actor explains, while cautioning, “Your wife will never think it’s funny or charming if you tip your imaginary top hat and say, ‘At your cervix.’ Don’t do that.”
Of course, while being there is important, it’s also good to remember your role in the whole process.
“Realize that you’re pretty much the least important thing in the room,” Reynolds shares. “It’s gonna go your wife, your baby, the doctor, a nurse, a doula if you have one… the air.”
Lastly, make sure to remember, “When your wife asks if everything’s OK down there, just respond in the affirmative. Don’t yell, ‘Better than ever!'”
