12 Instances When Ryan Reynolds's Twitter Gave Fantastic Updates on Raising His Children

Ryan Reynolds is one of the biggest stars working in Hollywood today.

#RyanReynolds is one of the biggest stars working in Hollywood today. Whether he takes a more serious approach in psychological horror roles like The Amityville Horror and Buried, or he is off being a straight up fantastical genius as Wade Wilson in #Deadpool, audiences love them this Canadian talent.

Reynolds met his lovely wife of five years, #BlakeLively, on set of the 2011 comic book flick Green Lantern, and although the film was not incredibly well-received, something great came out of it — the adorable relationship between Reynolds and Lively. Their chemistry was easily the best aspect of this doomed film and the sequence where Carol (Lively) figures out Hal's (Reynolds) identity will forever make me laugh, no matter what.

Informative Tweets For Every Occasion

The beautifully talented couple have two daughters together — James, 2 and Ines, 4 months — and Reynolds occasionally takes to Twitter to update his almost five million followers on any comings and goings involving his family. As per Ryan Reynolds, they are mostly sarcastic and wildly hysterical.

1. Taking A Trip To Disneyland

Went to Disneyland because my daughter's obsessed with Mickey Mouse. She was so excited when I got home and told her.
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) January 30, 2017

Reynolds's ability to create an invigorating narrative in just 140 characters is unparalleled. With this tweet, at least he mentions how excited his daughter was when he told her about his Disneyland expedition.

2. When Asked Why The Sun Goes Down

I'm teaching my daughter that the sun goes down each night because it's mad at her. Probably gonna write a book on parenting at some point.
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 5, 2015

Here, we see Reynolds eloquently explain to his daughter why the sun goes away every night. If he ever puts out a book on parenting, I will most definitely rent that shit out of the library.

3. Him Encouraging Dreams

My daughter's only 6 months old and already drawing. I'd hang it on the fridge but honestly, it's absolute garbage.
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 19, 2015

Back when his first daughter was six months old, Reynolds decided to encourage her dreams of becoming the next Picasso even though he was not exactly a fan of her work. I mean, it is quite inspirational, really.

4. 'I Can't Do This'

Nothing better than spending an entire morning staring into my baby daughter's eyes, whispering, "I can't do this".
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) August 26, 2015

Reynolds admits that sometimes, parenting is difficult — a sentiment many can attest to. There have been many times when I am about to cook and see all the ingredients in front of me and I whisper the exact same thing. I feel you, Ryan.

5. Hey Man, The Hair Is The Moneymaker

I'd walk through fire for my daughter. Well not FIRE, because it's dangerous. But a super humid room. But not too humid, because my hair.
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) September 11, 2015

His love for his daughter transcends relatively extreme weather patterns. If that's not love, I have no idea what is.

6. Frankly, We Need More Baby Cages

These baby cages were used in apartments in the 1930s to make sure the child got enough fresh air and sunlight. 
— Daily Planet (@DailyPlanetDC) June 25, 2015
This is absolutely monstrous and does anybody know if it requires a permit? 
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) July 9, 2015

They get all the fresh air and sunlight they need! Why would a permit be needed for such a fantastic parenting tool? I am with Reynolds on this one.

7. Baby Learns Of Acceptance

Surprisingly easy to teach a baby to swipe right.
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) August 16, 2015

If there were more people on Earth that would swipe right, legions of lonely people would have a satisfyingly quick sense of acceptance from their peers. You go, baby Reynolds!

8. Teaching Babies About The Circle Of Life

My daughter just sneezed into my yawning mouth. Seemed really fucking pleased with herself. Joke's on her. She'll have to bury me someday.
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) April 16, 2016

Always remember, readers: If a loved one decides to sneeze into your yawning mouth, remind them that one day they will have to bury you. That will teach them.

9. More Life Lessons Taught By Nursery Rhymes

Love writing nursery rhymes for my daughter. Her favorites are, "Sunshine-Cuddle-Time!" and "Everyone You Know Will Eventually Die."
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) November 11, 2015

Not only is Reynolds is a fantastically hilarious tweeter, he writes informative nursery rhymes as well! Is there anything this disgustingly talented man cannot do? That parenting book is looking better and better as time goes by.

10. Nobody Claimed He Was A Fashionista

LOVE dressing my daughter in baby clothes. The itsy-bitsy pink pajamas. The tiny white socks. The black leather mask. Cuteness overload!
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 13, 2015

To be fair, there are tons of Halloween outfits that rock this exact attire, and it is super encouraging to see Reynolds take a vested interest in the fashion choices of his children.

11. Answering The Question Fans Want Answered The Most

@VancityReynolds say something the whole world would like to hear
— Danny (@iMagineDaniel_) June 11, 2015
Selecting a lower back tattoo for an infant is easy. Finding someone willing to do the work is challenging. 
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 11, 2015

It really is so difficult finding trusting people to execute a lower back tattoo for an infant. My parents have firsthand experience with such a matter and I am certainly a better person for it.

12. Look Forward To That 'Parenting By Ryan Reynolds' Book Soon!

On Fathers Day, my daughter smiled at me.
It was all the gift I needed as I packed a bag and left for 6 years to write a book on parenting.
— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 21, 2015

This tweet was written in June 2015 so only four years or so left to go! I wouldn't place too much money on it being done that soon since Reynolds is busy with his various Deadpool endeavors, but I'm sure it will release eventually.

You rock, Ryan! Don't ever change.

Who are some of your favorite tweeters?
