Ryan Reynolds Shares Hilarious Instagram Post Taking Kids to Task for Bags Under His Eyes

Instagram/vancityreynolds

Actor Ryan Reynolds is nothing if not a Renaissance man. He’s proved himself to be a great voice artist, masterful troller, and a gin salesman who knows his way around social media.

That’s why his most recent Instagram post won’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s been following Reynolds’s career. He posted a series of suave photos of himself in dapper, vintage-inspired suits. There’s a double-breasted number with the loose tie, a houndstooth blazer with an unbuttoned black shirt, and even a grey plaid jacket paired with a bold striped shirt. He’s basically a Canadian James Bond with a different drink order (Aviation Gin, the brand Reynolds also owns a stake in).

After celebrating the photographer and stylists behind the shoot, Reynolds shows again why he’s the funniest dad in Hollywood, one refreshingly candid about the sometimes unpleasant job of being a parent.

“Bags under my eyes by two thankless assholes who refused to go to bed the night before, despite the fact I read them Winnie the Pooh and nearly half of Stephen King’s The Shining.”

What sleep-deprived parent hasn’t thought this way before? It’s refreshing to hear Reynolds telling a joke while imparting a truth: parenting can really suck, particularly when your kids keep you up all night.

“Sleep when the baby sleeps,” some say, an adage that none other than this website called “a fat burrito of hot garbage.”

The unfortunate reality is that sleep training is hard, and while life definitely gets better when it’s over, the fact remains that if kids are awake and persistent, as Reynolds’s kids seemed to be the night before this shoot, the chances of mom and dad going to bed early aren’t great.

Of course, this caption could be about someone other than Reynolds’s kids if a comment from a certain muscular action star is to be believed.

“Love these shots and love your gin,” fellow handsome guy Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson replies, continuing “Oh but I’m an ‘asshole’ cos I wanted you to read the second half of the Shining? 💁🏽‍♂️”
