Ryan Reynolds is one of Hollywood's most cute, hot, funny and talented stars. A cursory glimpse at the actor's life would tell you that Ryan pursued his acting career with relentless passion and zeal. From doing improv comedy at LA to starring as the lead romantic hero in "The Proposal" and perfecting the chops for superhero characters like "The Green Lantern" and "Deadpool", the actor's life is indeed colourful.

Ryan, who starred in ABC's "Two guys, a girl and a pizza place", once said, "You know, there's nobody where I've said, 'Man, I really want that guy's career.' I mean, each of us has to make our own go of it." And, it seems he wants to keep it going that way. His Twitter account is filled with witty tweets that fit into 140 characters. And he never shies away from experimenting with different roles or talking about his personal life with Blake Lively, who he married in 2012, or his life as a new father.

On his 39th birthday, we celebrate Ryan Reynold through his adorable quotes about Blake Lively and his daughter James.

On his daughter, James.

"If anything else woke up every 45 minutes during the night demanding to see my wife's breasts, you kill it. [But with] a baby, you're like, 'Wahoo!"

"Everyone thinks their baby is a genius. People find it delightfully refreshing when I tell them, 'My baby? Totally average. Like, 100 percent average"

On Blake Lively

"It's amazing. I'm not one for vomiting declarations of sentiment out across the airwaves, but when we had that baby, I fell more in love with my wife than I'd ever been in my entire life. I couldn't even believe it."

"I used to say to [Blake], 'I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you.' I would say that to my wife. And the second I looked in that baby's eyes, I knew in that exact moment that if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby."

On Family

"I've always wanted a big family. I also feel like my first child is going to be the oldest sibling to the next kid. You don't just raise your kids, your kids also raise each other."

"My brothers and I, we all look and move so different, you'd never guess we exited the same vagina."

On Naming his daughter

"(Her name is) Butternut Summersquash. (I'm joking) it's James. Everyone knows. I didn't want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media. Because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls and little teenage girls sometimes scan through the archives and go, 'Why did you do that?'"

"On the plane over here I was trying to think of baby names. I don't want a name that's anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y. So I'm going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds... that's if it's a girl."
