Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool wishes everyone happy Mother's DayRyan Reynolds is not shy about getting down ‘n dirty with his new role, the title character in the Marvel superhero movie “Deadpool.” He previously showed off the costume for the first time by parodying Burt Reynolds’ famous Cosmo centerfold, and now he wants to wish everyone a happy Mother’s Day.

The actor — and new father himself — tweeted the above photo with the NSFW caption: “#Deadpool: A motherf***er since 1991. #happymamasday.”

But Reynolds also tweeted a shout-out to his mom, Tammy, who raised him and his three younger brothers. He did not, however, post any Mother’s Day wishes to social media for his wife and new mom Blake Lively.

“Deadpool,” the eighth installment in the “X-Men” franchise, stars Reynolds as vigilante Wade Wilson. It co-stars Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, T.J. Miller as Weasel and Ed Skrein in an unknown role. It has been speculated that Skrein is playing Garrison Kane (Weapon X).

“Deadpool” hits theaters Feb. 12, 2016.
