Sleep, what’s that? Actor Ryan Reynolds is experiencing the loss of good shut-eye as he and his wife, Blake Lively, embrace parenthood to their 6-week-old daughter. “Yeah it is challenging. You’re operating off of a week’s worth of sleep amortized over 6 months. It’s tough” the handsome new dad admits to Extra TV.
The 38-year-old added, “But it’s amazing. It’s weird to wake up in the middle of the night 45 times and always be in a good mood. I’m not used to that, so that’s fun.”
The proud papa also talked about his sleep deprivation to USA Today: “I don’t sleep very much. It’s great. It’s wonderful. But my brain is elsewhere… It’s still so new that it’s hard to conceive being away for more than seven hours at a time,” Reynolds revealed. “I had to go to Sundance this last week. I was more excited to get a good night’s sleep. It was borderline pornographic for me.”
The actor has been promoting his new film, The Voices, where he plays a mentally ill, socially awkward, factory worker who takes orders from his pets. The film is set for release on February 6th, 2015.
