Since his career kicked off, Reynolds has had success after success.

He’s probably best known for his role as Marvel superhero, Deadpool.

In fact, he even directed the second Deadpool movie.

Lets not forget his other acting successes such as The Proposal, Buried and The Croods: A New Age.

And most recently, Free Guy.

But Reynolds isn’t just known for his excellent acting.

He is also known for his excellent humour.

Reynolds has one of the most beloved social media presences in the celebosphere.

His Twitter is absolutely loaded with golden moments, often making fun of being a husband and a father.

Reynolds often takes to Twitter and Instagram to poke fun at married life and fatherhood.

Around the time of his wife’s, Blake Lively, birthday, he often comes up with ingenious ways to share a sarcastic tribute to Lively – like this iconic poorly-cropped photo.

And this…

Nothing says “I love my wife,” like being more focused on the celebrations of an aging country star than her own special day.

It clear to see why Reynolds has become so well-loved over the years.

And why he has gained so many adoring fans.

But unfortunately for them, they will soon be seeing a little less of Reynolds.

Last month, Reynolds announced that he will be taking a short break from acting.

Having just finished filming on his new movie Spirited, a musical version of A Christmas Carol, Reynolds announced the news.

In an Instagram post, Reynolds wrote: “That’s a wrap for me on Spirited. Not sure I’d have been ready to say yes to a film this challenging even three years ago.”

“Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making.”

“I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists,” he added.

“These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I’ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both.”

The news of his break has left many people disappointed…

In an interview with LinkedIn, Reynolds revealed the reason behind his break…

And it’s all to do with his family.

He explained that the “biggest reason” for his break is because he doesn’t “want to miss this time with my kids.”

“I want my kids to have a pretty normal schedule,” he said. “For many years, when my wife Blake would shoot a film, I would not shoot a film, and I would be with the kids and vice versa. So we would sort of trade off.”

Reynolds said that now his children are in school, “they have a somewhat normal schedule,” something he thinks is important.

“I think it’s totally important for their development, and I really enjoy being a present dad,” he said.

Reynolds further added that he loves to take his children to school and pick them which this will enable him to do.

He also added he wants to spend more time focusing on his production company, Maximum Effort.
