As Mother’s Day approaches, Ryan Reynolds is revealing the key to his happy family with his pregnant wife, Blake Lively.

During an interview with People, the “Dead Pool” actor, 42, joked about what he could be getting the mother of his three children for Mother’s Day.

He said:

“I am going to keep it simple: Just some skydiving … maybe some skywriting. I am going to see if I can get one of those blimps that say something nice.”

Reynolds most recent interview comes after Lively, 31, debuted her latest baby bump.

The actress revealed the big surprise while wearing a yellow dress alongside Reynolds at the New York City premiere of “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” on May 2. Currently, the couple share daughters James, 4, and Inez, 2, People reports.

But how do the actor and his wife manage to make their family work? Reynolds says it’s all about unity.

The dad said:

“Blake and I don’t do movies at the same time. If she is doing a movie in Thailand and I am doing a movie in Vancouver we would just never see each other. We operate as a unit, and that works really well for us.

The kids stay with us, and the family stays together, and that is where home is. So if we are in Spain or Utah or New York, as long as we are together, we’re home.”

Further, Reynolds, who is the voice of Pikachu, says he is happy to be a part of a movie that his entire family can enjoy. This is different for the actor, who is typically known for his adult sense of humor.

Reynolds explained:

“To be a part of a film that my wife, Blake, is as excited about as my two daughters is unusual and super exciting for me. It’s so cool to see my girls pumped.”

His latest movie, “Pokémon Detective Pikachu,” debuts in theaters on May 10.
