Ryan Reynolds Ready For Fatherhood: 'I'm Excited To Have A Buddy'

Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Reynolds is set to become a dad for the first time in early next year and he has spoken out about his ‘excitement’. The actor is expecting a baby with his wife of two years, former Gossip Girl star Blake Lively.

Speaking to PEOPLE magazine on Saturday at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research Benefit in New York, the star said he is even ready for all the dirty nappies that will be coming his way.
 
‘I don’t have a weak stomach,’ the actor said. ‘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.’
