Very soon and become parents for the fourth time. The Canadian actor is best known for his roles as Deadpool, the party king and the heroine’s fictitious fiancé. in . Once Reynolds was married to one of the main blondes in Hollywood – , but today almost no one remembers this union. And all because another star beauty appeared in Reynolds’ life. Today we tell the love story of one of the brightest couples in the world of cinema.
He is a Canadian actor who grew up in a non-film family. Ryan’s father was a police officer and his mother worked in sales. From the age of 13, Reynolds dreamed of a big stage and systematically walked towards his goal. Ryan played small roles in TV series and was content with modest fees until he played in a comedy in 2002. , which opened the way for him to the world of Hollywood comedies. She is the daughter of an actor and casting assistant. At the age of 18, Blake began to actively act in films and at the age of 20 she became a world star thanks to the role of Serena van der Woodsen in the series Gossip Girl.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds met in 2010 on the set of the film Green Lantern, which was smashed to smithereens by critics and audiences. At the time, Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson and Blake was dating a Gossip Girl co-star. . Ryan and Scarlett’s relationship has always been surrounded by a lot of rumors and speculation. The press regularly wrote about their discord due to the success of Johansson and the constant failure of Reynolds in the cinema. In addition, insiders said that Scarlett categorically does not want children, while Ryan dreams of a big family (and he will definitely get one). Blake and Penn’s relationship can be described as a classic short-lived romance that broke out during filming. Lively and Badgley played a couple in love in the youth series Gossip Girl, but, unlike their on-screen characters, the actors decided to remain friends. Blake has also been credited with relationships with but neither she nor Leo himself ever gave any comments.
In September 2010, Blake and Penn parted ways, stating that they remain good friends and continue to communicate well on set. A couple of months later Ryan with Scarlett Johansson, cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason and asked that their right to privacy be respected. The tabloids immediately attributed the affair to Lively and Reynolds, although the actors themselves insisted that they were just friends and co-stars.
Later in an interview with Ryan : “We were just friends back then. It was funny, about a year after Green Lantern, we were both single and decided to go on a double date. She was with another guy and I was with another girl. It was for sure the most awkward date in the life of our companions, because the sparks between me and Blake were like fireworks. Rumors were confirmed when, in the fall of 2011, the paparazzi began to catch Lively near Ryan’s house. They celebrated Reynolds’ birthday together, and sources said the couple are very happy together. At the same time, the stars avoided official comments as much as possible, but they began to travel together without hesitation on family holidays.
They were first spotted in Utah, where the actors were visiting Blake’s sister. Not embarrassed by passers-by, they constantly held hands, kissed and looked very happy. For Christmas, the couple went to Vancouver to stay with Reynolds’ relatives. And already on September 10, 2012, Blake and Ryan played a secret wedding in South Carolina at the Boone Hall plantation. The newlyweds did not share photos from the event, but the guests said that the ceremony was wonderful. Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine sang as the musical guest at the wedding.
“Ryan and Blake wanted the event to look and feel as cozy as possible, like everyone was at home,” their wedding planner, Tara Gerard. We have combined the charm, elegance and magic of the past. It was truly a wonderful holiday. The bride wore a Marchesa dress and the groom wore a Burberry suit.”
Reynolds and Lively quickly became one of the most beloved celebrity couples in Hollywood. Largely due to the love and respect with which they always speak of each other. In their interviews, they often emphasize that they are not just in love, but are best friends, which, in their opinion, is the key to a happy family life and mutual understanding.
Blake was not opposed to putting her career on pause for the sake of her family, and already in October 2014, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child. The girl was named a rather unusual name – James, in honor of Ryan’s father, who died of Parkinson’s disease in 2015. In 2016, Lively became pregnant again, and in September, the second daughter of the actors, Inez, was born. The film was released the same year. , which completely changed the career of Reynolds and raised him to an unprecedented level of popularity and income. Blake supported her husband throughout the journey: no one believed in the project for a long time, because films based on comics with an age limit of 18+ had not been filmed before, and this was a huge risk. Reynolds invested most of his savings and bet literally everything on Deadpool. And he did not lose – the picture brought almost $ 800 million at the worldwide box office.
Blake and Ryan do not like to share the details of their personal lives and are especially careful to protect the privacy of their children. Only sometimes spouses appear with their daughters in public and tell some little things from backstage life. Fans are well aware of Reynolds’ jokes about his wife and children, which he relentlessly spreads on social networks and on talk shows:
“There is nothing better than spending the morning looking into your daughter’s eyes and whispering to her, ‘I can’t do this anymore.'”
“My daughter is only six months old and she is already painting. I would hang her painting on the refrigerator, but, frankly, it’s just some kind of garbage.
“For the sake of my daughter, I would go into the fire. Well, not exactly into a fire, because it’s dangerous, but into a very damp room. Not too wet, I have my hair.”
“Went to Disneyland today because my daughter loves Mickey Mouse. She was so excited when I told her about it.”
Ryan does not miss the opportunity to play a trick on Blake. Reynolds made one of his most famous jokes during David Letterman. “I am not the most sentimental person in the world, but when our daughter was born, I felt an incredible love for my wife, which I have never experienced before. I told her that I was ready to die for her, that I could never love anyone more than her. But as soon as I looked into the eyes of this child, I immediately understood: if we ever find ourselves in danger, if we are attacked, I will use my wife as a human shield to protect my child. The couple are constantly teasing each other on social media, posting bad photos from vacations and home life, but they are always reverent about marriage. Blake said that she and Ryan never work at the same time. If one of them is shooting, the second is at home with the children. They can afford to be away from home for a maximum of one day at a time.
In May 2019, the couple announced Lively’s third pregnancy. This became known during the premiere of the film “Detective Pikachu”, in which Ryan voiced one of the most famous Pokémon in the world. A few months later, the couple became the parents of a third daughter, who was named Betty. In honor of her, their best friend, singer Taylor Swift wrote a song of the same name, which also mentions the names of other children of Lively and Reynolds. In the fall of 2022, it became known that Lively and Reynolds were ready to become parents again and were expecting their fourth child.
Every Blake and Ryan appearance on the red carpet is a treat for the eyes not only of the couple’s fans, but of all fashion connoisseurs. Thanks to impeccable taste and competent stylists, Lively is very interesting to watch. What are her appearances at the Met Gala, an annual event held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Despite the fact that Ryan himself is always beautifully dressed, he allows his wife to shine and be the star of the evening on any red carpet, and she, like a true lady, never leaves the gentleman aside.
Fans of Reynolds and Lively over the past ten years have never doubted the feelings or strength of the couple’s relationship. They are always together, they always support each other at social events and beyond, they are ready to brighten up any situation with humor, and most importantly, they allow each other to grow professionally and personally, without overshadowing or dominating. They are not only co-stars, successful actors, entrepreneurs (Ryan launches a successful brand of gin, and Blake launches a series of detox lemonades), but also loving spouses, best friends and caring parents. Why not a couple for adoration and imitation?
