Actor Ryan Reynolds says his wife, Blake Lively, has made everything in his life better.

During his acceptance speech for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Reynolds said Lively was"everything to him".

The celebrity couple and their two young daughters made their first public appearance as a family at the ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard.

Actress Lively, 29, gave birth to their second child - whose name has not been released publicly - in September, while their eldest daughter James turns two on Friday.

"This is an incredible moment for me on so many levels," Reynolds, 40, said at the ceremony.

"I want to thank my wife, Blake, who is sitting right there who is everything to me.

"You are the best thing - the best thing - that has ever happened to me, second only to this star. It's the Hollywood Walk of Fame, cut me some slack here," he joked.

"You make absolutely everything in my life better. You've given me two of the most incredible children that I could ever hoped to have.

"You've made me the father of my dreams when I thought I only had 'fun uncle' potential."

Reynolds also paid tribute to his father James, who died last year after battling Parkinson's disease.

"He never made things easy on anyone, especially himself," Reynolds said.

"He would have got a real kick out of this. This is also for him."
