"He was even wearing his Ryan Reynolds costume," Ryan Reynolds wrote on Instagram about his accidental meet-up with older brother Terry
Ryan Reynolds and his brother Terry had an unplanned catch-up.
On Tuesday, Ryan, 47, and Terry Reynolds shared Instagram posts explaining how they randomly ran into each other on the street in New York City. According to both brothers' posts, they were going about their individual days when they noticed each other — while they both wore baseball caps representing the Welsh professional soccer club Ryan co-owns, Wrexham FC!
"I’m not sure what the odds are of running into your own brother while doing separate things in NY for the day. 8.5 million people and we practically collided," Terry wrote in an Instagram post that showed the brothers' selfie.
Ryan, the youngest of four brothers in his family, shared a similar amount of surprise when he wrote about his meetup with Terry on his Instagram Story.
"8.5 million people in NYC. Ran smack into my brother out of nowhere," he wrote in his post.
"He was even wearing his Ryan Reynolds costume," Ryan joked of Terry's outfit. "WTF."
Terry and Ryan also have two other brothers named Patrick and Jeff. Their father James, who died from Parkinson's disease in 2015, at one point in his career worked as a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police force.

Back in 2020, Ryan said that growing up the youngest of four brothers was "intense" during an interview on SiriusXM EW Radio.
“You sort of cultivate all these other aspects, survival aspects, that you wouldn’t normally cultivate, you know, being the oldest," he shared at the time, while speaking about his Marvel superhero role as Deadpool. “It’s something I always related to and I think that’s why I connected to the character 11 years ago. As a kid, I was the youngest of four boys. I wasn’t considered a younger brother, I was considered a moving target.”
“The way I stayed alive was with my mouth because I’m not going to win with my fists,” he said at the time. “I felt like I was sort of rehearsing for Deadpool from the get-go."
