Ryan Reynolds made a surprise appearance attending The View on Monday June 10 — and brought a special guest!

About halfway through the latest episode of the morning talk show, host Whoopi Goldberg called out the Deadpool actor, 47, for sitting in the crowd with his mother, Tammy Reynolds for the show’s taping.

Goldberg, 68, had said that the talk show can be unpredictable. “Sometimes you look up and you go, ‘Oh, this is really great.’ And then you look over and you go, ‘Oh snap, there’s Ryan Reynolds!’” she said, as Ryan waved from the crowd.

He was then asked about why he appeared in the audience of The View. “By the way, this is way less stressful than up there,” he began, joking about actually being onstage for the program.

“My mom is here visiting her grandkids. And yesterday she said, ‘It’s my dream to go to The View.’ And I said, well, first off, I try to do what she says because you don’t know what she’s capable of. Unspeakable violence, my whole life,” he continued joking.

The Spirited actor then said that he “made a call” as “Blake’s husband,” referring to his famous wife Blake Lively, asking to come to the show. “And here we are. I think my mom might have thought she was going to be on The View maybe, I’m not sure.” Tammy laughed in response and shook her head.

The mom of four told the hosts that she watches The View every day and was recording it at home in Vancouver.

The hosts responded by telling her she’s welcome any time, and that Ryan needs to bring Lively, 36, on as well.
