Oh, the things you learn once you have a baby to care for ;). Ryan Reynolds had an experience that all parents know: his baby daughter, James, got sick, so he had to take her temperature. The way he had to do that for an infant had the new father traumatized.
Ryan explained when he went on ‘Live with Kelly and Michael’:
She didn’t sleep last night… first fever.
“I was told to check her temperature… through the rectum, which for me it was like… ‘Noooo, it can’t be. There’s a mouth! There’s an armpit. There’s gotta be something!'”
Nope, Ryan: that’s how it’s done with the little ones- LOL.
He and wife Blake Lively had to team up, with one distracting her while the other took her temp. Ryan said:
It was terrifying, though. It all went well, though.”
He joked that he’d remember this when he walked James down the aisle as a bride.
And she’ll go, ‘I know what you did.'”
LOL! Ryan also said that James calls him “Mama.”
She’s saying ‘mama.’ What my wife doesn’t realize is [the baby] calls me ‘Mama’ too. Seriously. I literally had to sit her down and tell her that penises don’t work that way. She understands… she gets it.”
He better prep himself to have that discussion again in a few years ;). Watch Ryan recount the experience to hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan in this clip:
