Ryan Reynolds loves being a father

Ryan Reynolds says fatherhood is "the best thing that ever happened" to him.

The 'Woman in Gold' star, who welcomed three-month-old daughter James into the world with wife Blake Lively in December, admits "wild horses" couldn't have kept him away from her birth.

The 38-year-old actor, whose character Randy misses his child's birth because he has to appear in court, said: "I know Randy was committed to this cause, missing his child's birth. You would need wild horses and several bulldozers to pull me away from that. I could not miss that."

The heartthrob has fallen even more in love with 'Savages' star Blake, 27, since they became parents.

He told E! News: "When that happens you fall so much more in love with your partner. It's a pretty crazy experience. What blows my mind is that it's so common yet it's so profound at the same time. Something so many people do."

But Ryan is still suffering from a lack of sleep and is looking forward to having a more regular schedule.

He said: "Right now the baby's training us so I think we gotta turn the tables on this one.

"There have been times where I woke up, literally had no idea I had been walking for five minutes. But you love it. You wake up in the middle of the night, you got a big stupid smile on your face. I was telling someone else that. Anything else that woke you up every 45 minutes, you'd kill it. But when it's a baby, it's the best thing that ever happened to you."
