Could Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively BE any more perfect?

Even with both being big Hollywood names, the couple always manages to put each other before their careers, declining roles that would have them working apart.

"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 "Deadpool" actor told People.

'As long as we are together, we're home'

The 42-year-old dad of two added that home is where ever they are all together.

"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."

Hanging out with your family that often can prove to be too much at times, though, as Reynolds joked about wanting to die when he travels with his kids.

"Usually when I’m on an airplane with my kids, at some point I get up and ask the flight attendants if I can leave the aircraft," Reynolds said jokingly. "99% of the time they say, ‘No, please stay seated!’ So I just sit back down and long for the sweet release of death."

Repeat: I am not a short-order cook. "It's a child's job to learn to eat what the parents eat," says Ellyn Satter, a registered dietitian and the author of Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family. Instead of the all-or-nothing scenario, offer a variety of foods at mealtime: the main course, plus rice or pasta, a fruit or vegetable, and milk. This way, your child can eat just the pasta and the peas and get protein from the milk. "What a child eats over the course of a day or a week is more important than a balanced meal at one sitting," says Stephen Daniels, the chairman of the department of pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, in Aurora.

Reynolds shares two daughters, James, 4, and Inez, 2, with his wife, Blake Lively.
