Ryan Reynolds has always been vocal about his love for his wife, Blake Lively, and their three daughters. The Deadpool actor is the real super dad as she shows off his lovely family from time to time with nothing but sweet things to say about them. He once again repeats the same feat at the People's Choice Awards in the most heartfelt speech we've ever heard, and we're filled with admiration for Reynolds.

Keep on reading for the details.

Receiving The Icon Award

The Free Guy actor received the Icon Award at the 2022 People's Choice Awards on Tuesday night and gave a special shout-out to Lively and their three daughters, including the fourth baby, who is on the way.

“I gotta thank my family, family, Blake. Blake and my three daughters... You’re my heart, you’re my hope, you’re my happiness. I joke my family exhausts me but in reality, you give me more strength than any man could possibly deserve.”

He referenced the upcoming birth of his fourth child and joked that if he missed the delivery (should it happen that night) he'd consider sleeping on Shania Twain's amazing couch as the crowd laughed in unison.

Shining The Light On His Family

The actor joked about accepting the awards, compared it to feeling like he was at a funeral, and expressed his joy in receiving the Icon award.

“Wow, I feel like I’m at my funeral except I get to leave,” Reynolds, 46, joked as he accepted the award on Tuesday, December 6. “I guess I finally tested positive for icon. I’ve been avoiding it for years but here we are.”

He continued the speech by thanking his mom, three brothers, and his father who died a few years telling the crowd that he would have loved his grandchildren.

"Boy if he could see if he could see all the things that have been going on, and he wouldn’t be impressed with this, He’d be most blown away by his three little granddaughters."

The star was announced as the award recipient back in November for his impressive contribution to the entertainment industry. He's joining past award winners, including Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, and Melissa McCarthy.

Reynolds revealed to E! News that he felt "old" after hearing the news of his awards after a 30-year-long career. The 46-year-old actor said

“And then I realize, ‘Yeah, I’ve been around.’ I’ve been doing this job for over 30 years now...I’m lucky that I’ve been able to do it for 30 years.”

Reynolds and Lively tied the knot in 2012 and welcomed three daughters, James,8, Inez,6, and Betty, 3. In September, the couple revealed they were expecting a fourth child and are excited about the arrival of their little one.
