Nine daughters? Ryan Reynolds would be fine with that

RYAN Reynolds would be fine with having nine daughters.

The 'Deadpool' star - who already has 13-month-old daughter James with wife Blake Lively - admits he wouldn't mind adding a number of girls to his brood as he grew up with three brothers.

Speaking to SiriusXM EW Radio, he said: "I can't get enough of that. If I could have nine daughters, I would be thrilled. My brothers and I, there's four of us, we would destroy the house. I was 8 and I could patch and drywall at 8. We could actually repair an entire hole in the wall in our house within 15 minutes. That's part of the reason I don't want boys, I don't want a wiffle house."

Meanwhile, the 39-year-old actor previously admitted he found fatherhood to be a "relief".

He shared: "Not unlike most people, I've found there is something of a relief to it, that you're not the centre of your own universe any more and there's something nice about how trivial all those other little things you used to lay awake at night worrying about become.

"I think there's something beautiful about that, and that's not something I was expecting."
