Ryan Reynolds has revealed that he is very much a hands-on-dad and has even joked that he has tried breast-feeding his daughter.

The 38-year-old actor and his wife Blake Lively, 27, welcomed their first child Violet into the world over the Christmas period, and it seems the Green Lantern star is adjusting to fatherhood quite well.

Speaking to People magazine, Reynolds gushed about family life now that he and Lively are parents. He said: "I gotta jump in and do all those sorts of things. 

"I mean, I've even tried breastfeeding. It's frustrating for the baby and frankly disturbing for me... not well is the answer."

He added: "It's amazing that you can be that exhausted and that happy at the same time."
