Ryan Reynolds: I'm a doting dad

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively think their baby daughter is allergic to sleep.

Ryan and his wife Blake Lively welcomed their daughter into the world in December, but are yet to reveal what the name of the tot is.

The family were spotted out for the first time over the weekend, as they hurried through New York's JFK Airport.

When Ryan stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon yesterday the actor couldn't help but gush over his offspring.

"She's got me wrapped around her finger. It's the best. It's just going to be tea time every day," he smiled to the chat show host.

Dad duties have come naturally to the 38-year-old and he and Blake are relishing parenthood.

However, he could do with a bit more shut-eye, and the couple often laugh that their baby is allergic to sleep.

"We joke that she's protecting us from the sleep monsters," Ryan explained.

In typical Fallon fashion, Jimmy got his guest involved with a funny gag. Both he and Ryan played a game of Egg Russian Roulette, which involved each player selecting an egg and cracking it over their head. Some were hard boiled, while others uncooked, meaning both men soon ended up with egg on their face.

"@jimmyfallon: Tonight: Egg Russian Roulette w/Ryan Reynolds!" This is good news. I always lose at traditional Russian Roulette (sic)," Ryan told his Twitter followers.

During a chat last month with David Letterman Ryan once again spoke lovingly about his family.

“I used to say to [Blake], ‘I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you.’ 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,” he revealed.
