Ryan Reynolds is having quite the year already!

As well as starring in two major Super Bowl ads and new movie Deadpool, Reynolds is PEOPLE’s Sexiest Dad Alive.

The actor’s new title was announced on Tuesday’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, when the late night host revealed Reynolds’ magazine cover.

“What?! I mean come on! I mean scientifically speaking, what’s sexier than a man that fornicates, produces children and then looks surprised about it,” Reynolds joked about his cover shot.

Although Reynolds didn’t go too much into his home life, he did tell Fallon that his family is “doing great” and that his daughter is “walking [and] talking.”

The father of one welcomed his first child with his wife Blake Lively in December of 2014, and while the couple has done a good job of keeping 1-year-old baby James out of the spotlight, Reynolds doesn’t shy away from talking about her.
