Ryan Reynolds is still pretty new to being a dad, but he’s already rife with worry, even if he is getting a bit ahead of himself. “I worry that my daughter’s going to want to go into show business,” he tells the “Today” show’s Willie Geist in an interview. “You know, you worry about really stupid stuff. And you sort of sit there and go, ‘Oh gosh, is she going to want to do this?’ I like to whisper in her ear, like, really normal everyday jobs. ‘You’re going to be a flight attendant. A barista!’ Just normal, wonderful jobs that you can have a nice, normal life [doing].”

But for now? Things are cool, actual worry-wise. To wit, the “Van Wilder” star has coined a phrase that could very well be a life motto for just about anyone, not just babies: “There is no problem that a breast won’t fix.” I’m seeing bumper stickers and T-shirts, people. Maybe even mouse pads.
