Ryan Reynolds reveals his daughter’s highly unusual first words

She quoted Tom Hanks.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are anything but ordinary. From hilarious birthday tweets to crazy bedroom confessions, theses two have us in stitches! So we’re hardly surprised that their daughter James first words were equally unexpected.

Sure most babies’ first words are “mama” or “papa” however Ryan admitted the two-year-old’s first words were inspired by one of Hollywood’s biggest stars – Tom Hanks. The revelation came during the 40-year-old actor’s acceptance speech at the Critics Choice Awards.

“I genuinely was not expecting this, I prepared nothing,” the Deadpool actor said. “So, I’m just going to focus on Tom Hanks.

“No, really though, you’re a huge influence on me,” Reynolds told Hanks, who was sitting in the audience.

“My two-year-old daughter — the first full sentence she ever said was, ‘There’s no crying in baseball.’ I’m not even kidding.” Hanks delivered the iconic quote in the 1992 film, A League Of Their Own.

Ryan and Blake welcomed their daughter James in December 2014, and Blake gave birth to their second child, a girl, in September.
