I'm teaching my daughter that the sun goes down each night because it's mad at her. Probably gonna write a book on parenting at some point.

Reynolds said his priorities changed when he became a father. Like most guys enjoying their youth, he used to focus on himself alone.
With two growing kids, the "Deadpool" star is both excited and apprehensive about being a daddy. "Now there's double the mistakes to make," he joked, adding he has a wonderful wife who makes up for his "shortcomings" as a father to his children, as per Heat World.
What he's learned about fatherhood so far is that it's all about instinct and patience. "I can comb a doll's hair for six hours and suddenly remember to blink," he told Harper's Bazaar.
