Actor Ryan Reynolds, who is yet to get a taste of fatherhood, says being a parent can be like a healing therapy for people.
He also believes it can help them sort out issues of their childhood.
Reynolds secretly married actress Blake Lively last year, and he is excited about the prospects of becoming a father one day.
"I think you do a lot of personal healing when you're parenting a child. I mean, it's a difficult job. We all know it's one of the hardest jobs in the world," accesshollywood.com quoted Reynolds as saying.
"So, I think you could kind of help heal some of the past stuff from your childhood as well as, you know, that's the gift that keeps on giving, having children. That's an amazing experience," he added.
