Ryan Reynolds has been around Hollywood for more than two decades, and he seems to have the magic touch of turning every movie into a success. His latest work, "The Adam Project," has become one of the year's biggest movies.

The movie, which features a rich cast including Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, and Jennifer Garner, has had one of the highest views on Netflix since it was released.

Over the last few years, Reynolds' movies, such as "Red Notice" and "6 Underground," have all ranked high among English-language films on Netflix, earning the 45-year-old actor an impressive reputation.

Reynolds has appeared in other smash hits such as "Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard," "The Proposal," "Green Lantern," and "The Avengers." Although Reynolds has his way with the movies, it is not his first passion.

The "Deadpool" actor, a well-known family man, loves being a father more than anything else. Reynolds is married to fellow movie star and model Blake Lively, and the couple share three children, James, Inez, and Betty. For Reynolds, spending time with his girls comes first.

Although the "Free Guy" actor has had the best career, he's also had no problems walking away from everything to spend more time with his children.

In 2021, the actor shared a message on his Instagram, noting that he took a break to be with his family. Reynolds gave fans a clue about family time in a funny tweet he shared. He wrote:

In another humor-laced tweet, the actor hinted at how far he was willing to go to demonstrate his love for his daughter. He wrote:

"I'd walk through fire for my daughter. Well, not FIRE, because it's dangerous. But a super humid room. But not too humid because my hair."

Reynolds and Lively adopted a unique method of parenting their children. Reynolds stated that he shares parenting duties equally with his longtime partner. According to the "The Adam Project" star, parenting with Lively is easier since they are both buddies.

The father of three admitted that a huge reason for his sabbatical was to allow Lively to focus on her career and do the things she loves to do. The 34-year-old "Gossip Girl" actress has a busy schedule like her husband.

Lively once told People Magazine about how important it is for her daughters to see her as a working mom. She said, "I want them to feel my presence, but I also think the best way to be the best mother is to show them that you can have a life and have a passion and have an identity outside of just being a mother."

Reynolds and Lively want to be a part of their daughters' lives as much as possible, but the actor reportedly admitted that his girls might not see him as much of a big deal. To them, he will always be "dad."

The award-winning actor also revealed that his family changed his outlook on life and career. Reynold also proves his love for his family by helping out with the "dirty work."

During an appearance on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," the "Red Notice" actor urged other fathers to do the dirty work and help with the diapers because nothing is too much for his family.
