Ryan Reynolds Assembling an Ikea Crib Will Make Your Day

Ryan Reynolds totally gets us when it comes to Ikea furniture.

While we appreciate the Swedish superstore, actually putting the items together takes the kind of patience reserved for the Dalai Lama or doctors who have to perform 12-hour surgeries.

The new dad, who's a father to daughter James with wife Blake Lively, feels our pain while trying to assemble an Ikea crib in a new short video produced by GQ.

"I think the biggest issue that I'm having right now is that the crib didn't come assembled," he says while talking on the phone to an Ikea rep.

As he wonders aloud how to curse in Swedish, he also downs a few palliative pints in the process.

"Besides a slow descent into alcoholism," he continues to tell the rep, "I'm just really having trouble finding all the screws and the pieces that go with it. I mean there's gotta be over a 100,000 pieces that came with it."

What he finally does is what you've secretly wished you could do in real life.

We've been there, Ryan. Welcome to parenthood.
