“I never admitted it out loud, to myself or my wife, but I really wanted a little girl,” he said. “It’s the best.”

Reynolds’ grew up in Vancouver in a family of all boys, so he was ecstatic when he found out he was going to have a daughter, calling it “a dream come true.”

The 39-year-old is currently promoting his highly-anticipated film “Deadpool,” which hits theatres Feb. 12. Now with the new title of “Sexiest Dad Alive” under his belt, it looks like his year is off to a great start.

In his final words about his daughter to People, Reynolds' gushed: “I don’t have to prepare to be wrapped around my daughter’s finger. I have been wrapped around her little finger since the day she plopped out into this world.”

Sexiest dad alive, indeed.
