Ryan Reynolds Jokes About Being Home With Kids Amid COVID-19

Ryan Reynolds's Sarcastic Take on Being Home With the Kids All Day Will Hit Home

Father of three Ryan Reynolds is always good for a solid one-liner, and his penchant for sarcasm was put to good use while discussing what it's like to social distance with his three daughters — James, 5, Inez, 4, and Betty, 1 — amid the pandemic. During an interview with Hoda Kotb on the The Today Show, he pretty much summarized how parents who are home all day, every day with their little ones feel.

"I am not living paycheck to paycheck like so many people across the country are and the world," Ryan told Hoda, "But you know for me, the best — I would say obviously is the time spending with family, with my kids, having an incredibly concentrated amount of time with them during a period in their lives that I'll never get back."

Ryan continued, joking that while the extra time with his daughters is certainly a blessing, it can also have its downsides. "If I'm to pick the worst thing, it's probably the incredibly concentrated amount of time I've had with my kids in a time that I'll never get back," he said.
