Ryan also spoke about the joys of being a new parent, telling People magazine: "It's amazing that you can be that exhausted and that happy at the same time."

The Green Lantern actor previously spoke of his excitement about becoming a father and said that he intended to be a hands-on dad.

"I'm good with diapers and all that kind of stuff because I have lots of nieces and nephews, so I’ve done it all before. I’m just excited about having a buddy,” he said.

Ryan's wife Blake Lively described motherhood as the time of her life

Meanwhile his wife Blake has previously said that motherhood is "the happiest time" in her life, and her new role feels natural.

"I don't feel like it's a massive change," she told People magazine, adding that she is keen to keep growing her family with her husband.

"I do want to just enjoy this moment, but I also feel like my first child is going to be the oldest sibling to the next kid, and that may change with each and every year.

"I'm looking forward to how one baby influences the other, and to my family as a whole, to every single chapter."
