These days, the absolutely beautiful Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds are royalty as far as Hollywood couples go. However, did you know the Deadpool star and the Gossip Girl actress were once just two friends out on a double date — with other people?
As Reynolds told Entertainment Weekly’s SiriusXM show in February 2016: “We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl — and that was, like, the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across.”
Still, the Critics’ Choice winner said he was glad that the two started off as “buddies.” “I remember it was funny, because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and all that stuff, we were both single,” he said of their shared 2010 film. “I think the best way to have a relationship is to start as friends.”
It’s certainly worked out for the sensational duo. Not only did they go to tie the knot in September of 2012 but, they have since welcomed three children together.
Apart from their impressive careers and picture perfect moments caught on camera, the couple are also known for famously trolling one another on social media.
Although the now iconic pair are notoriously private when it comes to their children, Ryan did open up about parenting during a podcast, revealing how “tough” he found homeschooling throughout the pandemic. He did go on to credit his wife Blake, explaining that she was “so much better” at parenting during that time than he was.
Blake and Ryan always look insanely good on the red carpet, are frequently photographed on adorable family walks looking very happy and in love, are proud parents to three daughters and publicly support each other's projects.
Whatever the scenario, I personally love to see a celebrity couple unafraid to laugh at themselves and not take each other too seriously, just as much as many fans love seeing what they choose to wear to events like the Oscars and Met Gala. These two lovebirds are most certainly one of my favourite celebrity couples.
