The couple welcomed their first daughter just before the New Year, and during an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds reveals that his wife, Blake Lively, comes second place to his daughter.


Talking To David Letterman, the new father said: “I used to say to [Blake], ‘I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you.’ And the second I looked in that baby’s eyes, I knew in that exact moment that if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby.”


We’re pretty sure he was joking, somewhat, as he went on to add that he is madly in love with his wife of two years saying: “I’m not one for vomiting declarations of sentiment out across the airwaves, but when we had that baby, I fell more in love with my wife than I’d ever been in my entire life. I couldn't even believe it.”



The couple have yet to officially reveal their daughter's name, after rumours of the youngster being called Violet were said to be false. 


Aw, we love Ryan Reynolds more and more each day.
