Watch Ryan Reynolds Try to Build an IKEA Crib and Fail

Pin It
Ryan Reynolds trying to build a crib from IKEA is basically us trying to build anything from Ikea (we totally feel his pain).

In this hilarious clip, Ryan picks up a Hensvik crib from the store and has a seriously difficult time trying to assemble it when he gets it home. It's so hard that he calls IKEA to get some help (which we've also done before).

"There's no problem with it, but I think the biggest problem I'm having right now is that the crib didn't come assembled," he says to the customer service representative. "There's just an enormous amount of hardware that has come with this unit...there's got to be over 100,000 pieces that come with it." Ryan eventually fixes the crib in his own way – with duct tape - after consuming several bottles of beer.

Speaking of fatherhood, and all that comes with it, Ryan sat down with GQ recently to talk about life as a dad, among other things, saying he thinks he's the dad he hoped he'd be.

"I can't say I had an easy relationship with my father, and I can't say my brothers did either, but I look at each of my older brothers, and they're all fathers, and they're all great fathers," he told the mag. "So, I had some good examples. But I don't think you really necessarily need examples. You just try to not be a complete pile of shit and just be there for them. You know, I like it: I mean that in the heaviest context. I genuinely like it. I like being a father. I like having a daughter. I would like to have more kids. You know, it seems to suit me pretty well."

Thumb wrestling isn't always fair. Curiously, my hand is the small one.

When asked if that surprised him, he said, "I'm surprised how patient I am with it. I feel like I could sometimes have a bit of a short fuse, but there's just been this weirdly endless supply of patience. I have no problem waking up five times in the middle of the night and changing diapers, and as exhausted as you get, I have this stupid grin on my face all the time. And that's not because I have a nanny or something like that. It's just us right now, and I love it."

Seriously, this guy is giving us all types of feels, and something tells us little James has Ryan wrapped right around her finger.
