Ryan Reynolds was awarded his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday, and was accompanied for the ceremony by his wife Blake Lively and their two children James Reynolds, 2, and their newborn, whose name the couple has yet to announce.


This is the first time Reynolds, 40, and Lively, 29, have brought their children to a Hollywood event, as they’ve tried to keep them out of the spotlight so young. The actor, known for such hits as DeadpoolThe Proposal and Green Lantern, took no time in thanking his family.

“I want to thank my wife, Blake, who is sitting right there who is everything to me. You are the best thing that has ever happened to me,” Reynolds declared at the podium. “You make everything better—absolutely everything in my life better. You’ve given us two of the most incredible children that I could ever hope to have. You’ve made me the father of my dreams when I thought I only had fun uncle potential.”

Reynolds is well known for joking about fatherhood on twitter, and not taking himself too seriously.
