Ryan Reynolds has admitted he is slightly concerned when it comes to his daughter James' first word.

Usually hearing your tot speak for the first time is something all new parents get excited about, but Definitely Maybe actor Ryan has revealed the milestone is getting him all worried.

Why you ask? He thinks daughter James may have picked up a few expletives...

Opening up about his baby girl beginning to talk, Ryan explained he was worried a swear word may slip out of James' mouth as lately she has been spending a lot of time on set of his new movie Deadpool.

And considering the film is constantly plagued by bad language, he's hoping it won't have any influence on the seven-month-old.

"If her first word is f**k, then I've done something wrong," he said while attending Comi-Con in San Diego. "But otherwise I think we're fine. I think we're OK. The second or third [word], that's fine. But the first? No. It's going to have to be mum or dad."

The star's wife and Gossip Girl star Blake Lively had previously joked she and Ryan had been competing when it came to their daughter's first word.

She revealed that while she was eager for James to say 'mama' first, Ryan had been pushing for her to say 'dada'.

"We're total rivals," Blake told Jimmy Fallon. "I hear [Ryan] like 'dada, dada' then I walk in the room and he'll be like 'mama'. How dare he do that! The word dada is banned in our household."

She went onto joke that little James has to say 'mama' first as she does everything when it comes to the tot.

It seems the pair may now be in agreement, however, as when asked what word he hoped his baby girl would say first, Ryan revealed: "I'm rooting for mum!"

Ryan's comments about his daughter comes after Blake recently shared a sweet photo of the 38-year-old and their first child.

Paying tribute to her other half on Father's Day a few weeks back, the US beauty joked: "Happy Fathers Day!!!... @vancityreynolds Since the day our baby was born, I've felt so strongly in my heart that you were most likely the father. #ILoveYouSoMuchItsSilly."

Ryan and Blake first welcomed James at the end of December last year. Since then, both have been gushing about their new family life in interviews and across social media.

While Blake has gushed her daughter is the most important thing to her, Ryan has said little James already has him wrapped around her finger.

And proving so, he later shared the first photo of James to Instagram in May. Well, her hand that is clutching onto her daddy's thumb. Aw!
