New parent and Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is on the cover of GQ this month, and in the magazine's interview, the actor opens up about the trials of fatherhood, proving that for the most part—aside from a rather alarming event in which one of his closest friends tried to sell photos of his daughter, James, to the paparazzi—he's just like us. "Don't listen to any advice," he says. "Because there's nothing you can do to prepare for it." The magazine put Reynolds to the ultimate new-dad test, challenging him to build an IKEA crib. Watch the video above to see how skilled Reynolds is with the flat-pack furniture. Hint: Let's just say it ends in duct tape.
