Blake Lively: Ryan Reynolds' Tweets About Daughters Are Jokes, People

Don't take Ryan Reynolds' posts about his kids too seriously

Relax, you guys.

Ryan Reynolds — funny Twitter dad extraordinaire — is not actually dropping off his baby girls at Burning Man or burying them in the sand overnight.

According to People, Blake Lively, actress and amused wife of Reynolds, says her husband "may as well work for the Enquirer" when it comes to the hilarious scenarios he tweets about their two daughters, James, 2, and Ines, 10 months.

Lively talked with Glamour (she's the September cover star) and took the opportunity to reassure any mildly concerned fans.

“When he says ‘my daughter,’ he’s never, ever talking about her. Everything is a completely made-up scenario," she said. "He’ll run them by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I’m so in love with him when he writes that stuff. I mean, I’m in love with him most of the time, but especially with that.”

Lively says as irreverent as her husband may seem on Twitter, he's dead serious behind the scenes when it comes to raising their daughters with intention. He cares deeply about the language they use as parents — in a way that Lively says has opened her eyes.

“I’m lucky to have someone who is so conscious. My husband was like, ‘Why do I always say he?’ And I said, ‘That’s what we’re taught.’ So he’ll pick up, like a caterpillar, and instead of saying, ‘What’s his name?’ he’ll say, ‘What’s her name?’” said Lively.

Lively also said the word "bossy" has been blacklisted at their house, for good reason:

"We’ve joked that my daughter is bossy. But my husband said, ‘I don’t ever want to use that word again. You’ve never heard a man called bossy.’ …. There would never be any negative connotation for a man being a boss, so to add a negative connotation on a woman being bossy? It’s belittling. And it doesn’t encourage them to be a boss. So do I know how to be the best parent for a daughter? No, I have no idea. All I can do is share what I’m thinking — and learn from others.”

We can't help but love this parenting duo. James and Ines, you scored big with these two.
