Ryan Reynolds ‘Terrified’ He’ll Only Have Boys

Eric Charbonneau/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- In the latest issues of Details Magazine, Ryan Reynolds opens up about how he wants a large family with wife and Gossip Girl star Blake Lively, whom he married in 2012.

But the Turbo star, 36, told the magazine that growing up with three older, rambunctious brothers scares him into hoping a daughter is in the cards for him and Lively, 25.

“I’m terrified that I’m genetically predisposed to only having boys,” he said. “There’s nothing my brothers and I didn’t put a hole in. We turned our home into a Wiffle house.”

Still, Reynolds, who divorced another big name actress -- Scarlett Johansson -- in 2010, said he would “love to have a big family” someday with Lively, who like Ryan has multiple siblings -- four brothers and sisters to be exact.

“A lot of people say it’s crazy, but we’ll only know when we’re there, you know?” he added.

What Reynolds does know right now is that he’s not prone to discussing his love life with the media, even though he doesn’t intentionally mean to be shifty.

“If you ask me to describe my relationship, I mean -- words are too clumsy to accurately describe how I feel in that regard, particularly in an interview,” People’s 2010 Sexiest Man Alive continued. “I understand the climate we live in and why people are curious. But it’s just tough and almost emotionally violent -- for anyone, I think -- to see your personal life summarized in a sentence.”

The always witty and sarcastic Reynolds, who became a household name in National Lampoon’s Van Wilder, also explained that his first acting experiences were of the morbid kind.

“I’d fantasize that I had tuberculosis,” he said. “I told everyone I was dying from TB. To this day I can’t really explain it, other than it was just an obvious prelude to what I do now, living in make-believe in this hyperdramatized environment.”
