Fatherhood is no easy task, but luckily celebrity parents are always happy to share their knowledge with other first-time dads.

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, who welcomed his first baby with Blake Lively in January last year, has a few words of wisdom for One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson.

Louis became a first-time dad in January to baby Freddie, his son with stylist Briana Jungwirth.

Asked what advice he had for him, Ryan said: “Buckle up stud, here goes. Now the real work begins.”

When asked if Louis could do anything to prepare for fatherhood, Ryan said: “He’s going to be fine. I don’t know him personally, but I’m sure he’s going to make a wonderful dad.”

He then added jokingly: “Actually I’m not sure of that because I don’t know him.”

Deadpool is out in the UK on February 10.
