Ryan Reynolds had a ''pinch me'' moment when he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 40-year-old actor - who has two-year-old daughter James, and a two-month-old tot, who has yet to be named, with his wife Blake Lively - was honoured with the golden accolade on Thursday (15.12.16), and has admitted the moment felt utterly surreal to him.

The 'Deadpool' star - who was recognised as the Best Actor in a Comedy for his role as Wade Wilson in the fantasy film as well as Entertainer of the Year at this year's Critics' Choice Awards - took to social media to share his reaction to receiving the honour.

Alongside a picture of him crouching beside the star with his name emblazoned on, which was posted to his Instagram account, he wrote: ''Thank you to the @ollywoodchamberofcommerce and @20thcenturyfox. This is one of those 'pinch me' moments. But not in the creepy way my Aunt used to do it. (sic).''

The Hollywood hunk brought his brood along with him to receive the award in Los Angeles, which is believed to be the first public family outing.

And Ryan's spouse - who married in 2012 - has also taken to social media to share how proud she is and ''always has been'' of her husband, which saw the former 'Gossip Girl' star credit his acting skills in the heartfelt post.

Alongside a picture of her, Ryan and their children's feet framing Ryan's star on her picture-sharing account, she wrote: ''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 to show for it. (sic).''
