As expected, he revealed that their house is a busy sight at the moment, and things have been pretty hectic, as the video showed he was sitting in the kitchen for the interview.

“It’s a zoo over here, I mean, this is my office. To be honest, I’ll probably spend the rest of my life in here.”

He, however, assured viewers that they have everything sorted as this is not their first time handling kids or newborns.

"If we hadn't figured it out by now, I think we'd be in deep, deep trouble. Look, we wouldn't do this four times if we didn't love it." the Deadpool actor revealed.

Reynolds did not spill further detail about the baby's name or gender in the interview, although he expressed his desire for another girl last November. They also never find out the sex of their child before birth.

"I don't know. We never find out!" Ryan revealed during an appearance on Today show. "I know girls, so I'm kind of hoping that!"

What It Feels Like Growing Up With Boys

He described what it felt like growing up as the last of four boys, which is probably why he prefers to raise girls who are less chaotic, and he's very okay with being called the ultimate girl dad.

"I have all brothers, which is why I speak from experience, I love my well-being and my home. I was the youngest of four, and we were just arsonists and firemen."
