Ryan Reynolds Played Marvin Gaye While Blake Lively Was in Labor: It Was Like ‘Knives Coming Out of Her Eyes’
“I jammed a little Marvin Gaye‘s ‘Let’s Get It On,’ ” the mischievous dad told Meyers, which he also discussed in the new issue of Men’s Health. “It was like steak knives coming out of her eyes. Just like, ‘Are you f—ing s—-ing me right now?’ ”
But Reynolds, 39, admits his timing wasn’t exactly perfect.
“She was a mercenary … I think I just caught her right in the middle of a contraction,” he says. “She was pretty much making jokes the entire time.”
And his advice for dad-to-be Meyers, who’s expecting his first child with wife Alexi Ashe?
“Just do the dirty work, man. You gotta do the diapers, you gotta do the middle of the night thing,” he shares. “I mean, your wife — a human being will exit your wife, so she’s done enough. Just change the diapers.”
