On Tuesday, Ryan Reynolds tweeted the sad news of the passing of his father, James C. Reynolds, who was battling Parkinson's disease. Ryan spoke about his dad's condition during an interview with the Today show in November last year, saying that his dad "doesn't really talk about it too much" but "in a strange way, it's really kind of brought us together." He teamed up with Michael J. Fox for the 2014 appearance and continues to work with the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help fund Parkinson's research. Later that same year, Ryan and his wife, Blake Lively, welcomed their first child together, a daughter they named James.
