Nick Cannon recently announced that he is expecting his 11th child with model Alyssa Scott and Ryan Reynolds delivered the most *chef kiss* response to the news.
Reynolds has three kids and is expecting a fourth with actress Blake Lively. They are parents to James, age 7; Inez, 6; and Betty, 3. He has said that he is “kind of hoping” their fourth child together will be a girl, but they “never find out before”.
The desire, he explains, just comes from having experience with raising girls. Savannah Guthrie called him “the ultimate girl dad” and Ryan enthusiastically said “Yes” to the title.
Ryan tweeted his reply to the news of Cannon’s 11th:
“We’re gonna need a bigger bottle,” joked the actor.
The zinger seems to be a reference to an advertisement that Reynolds and Cannon worked together on for Father’s Day.
The ad features Cannon mixing together a “Vasectomy” cocktail with Reynold’s Aviation Gin company.
He pours a TON of gin into his drink then Reynolds grabs it and takes a swig.
“I’ll take it from here, Nick. I have three kids,” said Reynolds. Then Cannon laid down his cards:
“I have eight,” he said, which caused Ryan to do a spit take.
The news about the eleventh baby (model Alyssa Scott’s second) came on Thursday. She called the news “a miracle and a blessing”.
In 2021, the pair welcomed a son, Zen. He tragically died just five months later from brain cancer.
On Twitter, fans responded to Ryan’s joke with laughter. One person wrote, “RYAN LMAO” and another put a series of laughing emojis.
“Unreal! He will be able to field an entire team on the pitch!” said someone else.
On the YouTube video for Cannon’s commercial with Reynolds, someone said what we all feel:
“Nick has turned himself from the butt of the joke to someone laughing along with the joke. I love it when celebrities can poke fun of themselves.”
