While picking up the trophy at the People's Choice Awards, Ryan Reynolds got emotional while delivering his winning speech.

Ryan Reynolds became emotional at an awards ceremony on Monday night while talking about his pregnant wife.

The Deadpool actor was picking up the trophy at the People's Choice Awards on 5 December when he delivered the emotional speech about his family. Watch it below:

Reynolds did not only just talk about his immediate family but also his parents and his work colleagues at his production company Maximum Effort.

Speaking at the ceremony this week, the actor said: "Thank you Blake and my three daughters. It's going to be a fourth child very soon.

"Blake and my girls, you are quite literally my heart, hope and happiness.

"I joke that my family exhausts me, but you give me more strength than any man can possibly deserve."

The star then joked: "I feel like I'm at my funeral, but I get to leave. I guess I finally tested positive for icon. I have been avoiding it for years, but here we are.

"The one thing when you get a trophy like this, you don't get one like this without a lot of help from a lot of real icons and folks who aren't always putting their icons iconic energy in front of the camera.

"Over the course of this long career, there are literally way too many people to mention, but I couldn't remiss if I did mention that it starts with my family and it ends with my family."

Reynolds continued: "To my mom, three brothers and one of which is sitting over there and to my dad who left us a few years ago.

"If you could see all the things that have been going on, he would be impressed, but you would be blown away by his three little granddaughters.

"Thank you for bringing me to this moment in my life.

The actor also referred to his production company as 'family' in the speech.

"People with skill sets and points of view that are wildly different than my own.

"I am so grateful how Maximum Effort, this company has not only changed me, but leave space to change others, as well."
