“Our baby in particular is, we think, allergic to sleep,” Ryan told host and dad-of-two Jimmy Fallon, on Monday night’s Tonight Show (March 2).
“I don’t think that’s possible, no,” said Jimmy.
“We think that she thinks she’s protecting us from the sleep monsters,” the Woman in Gold star responded. “Like, ‘Oh, I’ve got to keep them up or the sleep monsters will get them.'”
“Babies don’t care about you!” Jimmy aptly reminds Ryan.
“The trick I try to use is that Baby Einstein stuff,” Ryan jokes. “But for me, that’s like horse tranquilizer…. I could go down on a lit stove.” Ha! We hear that.
Despite the sleeplessness, Ryan describes fatherhood as “the best.” “I can’t wait,” he says. “It’s just going to be teatime every day with her.” Awww.
