Ryan Reynolds stars in a new version of the classic tale A Christmas carol with comedian Will Ferrell, a musical title Spirited. Because it’s a musical, it requires some fancy footwork. Reynolds has many talents, but dancing doesn’t necessarily come naturally to him. He shared a cute clip of his choreography lesson on Instagram, where he and Ferrell are working hard on learning their steps.
“You have to be willing to be bad at something if you want to be… a little less bad at it? Here’s Will and I proving that point!” Reynolds subtitles the video of the two actors in the studio.
“We are so humbled by all the love for #Spirited on @appletvplus,” he added.
Reynolds’ wife, Blake Lively, is clearly very much in love because her response to the silly shuffling was adoration.
“Can you get pregnant while pregnant??” she asked in the comments section.
Lively is currently pregnant, so the question is relevant to her. The couple already share three girls, James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 3. Lively is carrying baby number four, which she confirmed in September by arriving on the red carpet of the 10th annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit with her baby bump in full display.
Earlier in November, Reynolds explained how his children feel about the coming arrival.
“Oh yeah, they’re in. They love it. They’re ready,” he said. “We’re very excited. You know, you’d have to be an idiot to do this four times if you didn’t like it. It’s going to be crazy, but we’re very excited.”
Reynolds has said he will take a break from acting right after Spirited wrapped in October 2021. In a interview LinkedIn NewsJessi Hempel, Reynolds explained that he wants to spend time with his children.
“The biggest thing for me… is that I don’t want to miss this time with my kids,” he said. “I want my kids to have a pretty normal schedule. For many years, when my wife Blake would be shooting a movie, I wouldn’t be shooting a movie and I’d be with the kids and vice versa. So we’d go on a kind of trade off. We never really worked at the same time. But we were always away. So the kids were away too… It’s a juggling act.”
