The 38-year-old gushed over his daughter with wife Blake Lively in an interview on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Monday, reports aceshowbiz.com.
"It's exciting, nine weeks now! I do everything (for her). Our baby in particular is, we think, allergic to sleep," Reynolds said.
Fallon laughed and responded: "I don't think that's possible."
Reynolds replied: "We think that she thinks she's protecting us from the sleep monsters. Like, 'Oh, I've got to keep them up or the sleep monsters will get them.' "
After that Fallon further joked: "No, babies don't care about you."
Reynolds added: "The trick I try to use is that Baby Einstein stuff, but for me, that's like horse tranquiliser. I could go down on a lit stove. You could push me out of an airplane. And that's the weirdest dreams in the world."
