Ever since Blake Lively posted the above picture on Instagram to honor Ryan Reynolds on Father’s Day, there has been some buzz about how their daughter isn’t safely secured in the carrier. Now, he is addressing the baby carrier issues – and as it turns out, it all boils down to him being a new dad. Can’t really fault him for that, can we?
Blake posted the picture with the caption: “Happy Fathers Day!!! … @vancityreynolds Since the day our baby was born, I’ve felt so strongly in my heart that you were most likely the father. #ILoveYouSoMuchItsSilly”.
Cute enough, right? It was until her fans began pointing out that he borked up how he was carrying their daughter James in the carrier.
“The baby is not properly secured in the vessel that I’m wearing there,” he says during a Tuesday interview with Matt Lauer for Today.
“I’m a first-time dad and that is not the first mistake I’ve made and I can guarantee it won’t be the last.”
And, rest assured, adds Reynolds, James has been carried correctly ever since the controversial candid. “I had never used that particular carrier before so every other time it’s been perfect,” he says.
More than anything, I loved her caption on the Instagram picture – it’s hilarious.
