After finally confirming the name of his and wife Blake Lively’s new baby girl last week, James, Ryan Reynolds is opening up about what it's really like to be a dad. The star reveals in a new interview that although he's not getting much sleep, the crazy experience is all worth it.

"There have been times where I woke up, literally had no idea I had been walking for five minutes," the actor told E! News while promoting his new movie Woman in Gold. "But you love it. You wake up in the middle of the night, you got a big stupid smile on your face. I was telling someone else that. Anything else that woke you up every 45 minutes, you'd kill it. But when it's a baby, it's the best thing that ever happened to you."

Reynolds also shared that little James has only strengthened his and Lively's love for one another: "You fall so much more in love with your partner," he said. "It's a pretty crazy experience. What blows my mind is that it's so common, yet it's so profound at the same time. Something so many people do."
