Ryan Reynolds Talks Baby Carrier Controversy, Says You Should Anticipate More Mistakes

Ryan Reynolds is doing this whole father thing for the first time.

Ryan Reynolds is doing this whole father thing for the first time. He knows he's going to make some mistakes.

He already made one pretty publicly when what seems like half the Internet totally freaked out after Blake Lively shared a photo their daughter, James, strapped to his chest with just her feet peeking out at the bottom.

During an appearance on the "Today" show on Tuesday, the 38-year-old actor opened up about the baby-carrier fail telling Matt Lauer, "The baby's not properly secured in the vessel that I'm wearing there. I'm a first-time dad, and that is not the first mistake I've made. I can guarantee you it won't be last."

He added, "I'd never used that particular carrier before. Every other time has been perfect."

The Canadian actor has been making the rounds while promoting his new sci-fi thriller "Self/less," and stopped by HuffPost Live on Monday, where he told host Alyona Minkovski he's trying not to be one of those annoying parents who brags about his kid all the time.

"I just find it funny -- everybody thinks their son or daughter is God's gift to air, and in their home, they are. I mean, when I'm [in my house], I look at my daughter and I'm like, 'You are the most amazing creature I've ever seen in my life.' But that's sort of annoying when you do that publicly, so I usually kind of go the other way with it. I'll write silly jokes about how my daughter is terrible at her art or whatever," Reynolds said.
