Ryan Reynolds got a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame on Thursday, rocking the happy family vibe as he and wife Blake Lively brought their kids along for the ride. Gushing, it turns out, was the theme of the day. 

Reynolds called out Lively in his acceptance speech, saying, "You've made me the father of my dreams, when all I thought I had was 'fun uncle' potential." 

And yup, the public got its first long look at their 3-year-old daughter, James, as well as the baby we'll call the New One (since the couple has yet to reveal the name or verify the gender of the child who arrived this fall -- grr, privacy!).

Before the actor took the mike, "Deadpool" writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernmick gushed all over their action anti-hero, with Reese saying, "He's not just a great man, he's a good man."

Friend and sometime costar Anna Faris had plaudits of her own. "Acting with Ryan is like playing an incredibly intense game of ping-pong," she said, then went on to describe the experience as "thrilling and terrifying," which from her definitely sounded like a compliment.

Later, Lively made it clear on Instagram how loverly she felt toward her guy, writing, "Proud is a pitiful word to describe how I felt today. @vancityreynolds The permanence of your impact is undeniable ... Always has been, but now we have a fancy [star] to show for it."
