Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds must be the most in-love couple in Hollywood. To celebrate his 40th birthday, they went to Boston, where their love story started. To make sure that their fans know just how much they appreciate each other in their lives, The Shallows star and Ryan Reynolds took to each of their Instagram accounts.
The 29-year-old actress just had a baby, but it looked like she made time to organize a great birthday party for her husband. She decided to make 2016 memorable for him by taking him to where they met.
“The actor turned 40 on Sunday, and Lively has now returned the Instagram favor, posting a creatively staged shot on her account Tuesday night,” reported Vanity Fair. “Lively and Reynolds are seen gazing into each other’s eyes, Lively’s hand on his shoulder (a very Romantic Comedy Poster set up), as—yes, there are layers within layers here—Reynolds holds a picture of the two, making the same pose, in a shot taken five years prior.”
She even wrote a big, fat caption with the picture as well.
He also returned the favor and posted a picture of the successful birthday dinner.
Despite being very public about their love for each other, they have also been fervently defending the privacy of their daughters. It was a decision she and her husband Ryan Reynolds both made even before the first baby came along.
“My husband and I chose a profession and a side effect of that is, your personal life is public,” The Shallows actress said. “Our child hasn’t had the opportunity to choose whether or not she wants her personal life to be public or not. So in order to give her as much normality as possible, we want her to have a childhood like we had.”
But it will become more of a challenge as they start expanding their family and having more babies. Having one under the radar is already a challenge, but keeping all of them out of the public eye will require a lot of juggling.
Having a house in the countryside definitely helps. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have nestled quite comfortably in Pound Ridge, NY, where they get to live quietly as a small family. While most of the town residents keep out of the celebrities’ business, they do see the family at the “grocery stores without their two kids”.
“[O]ne insider confirmed that the actress appears to be doing quite well in the weeks following the baby’s birth,” reports E! Online.
“Blake looks great these days,” the source said. “She hasn’t lost all the baby weight yet, but it doesn’t matter. She looks beautiful.”
Of course, the actress isn’t a big fan of drastically changing her body right after giving birth. While she has the genes to do a quick turn around, she thinks that it is not what all bodies are supposed to do.
“It’s so unfair though, because it’s so celebrated,” she said to People Magazine. “It’s like, this is what someone can look like after a baby. I think a woman’s body after having a baby is pretty amazing.”
“You don’t need to be Victoria’s Secret ready right away because you just did the most incredible miracle that life has to offer. I mean you gave birth to a human being! So I would really like to see that celebrated.”
And looks like Blake is spreading her pregnancy around as well! She just announced on Instagram that her co-star Amber Tamblyn is also expecting a child. Blake wrote a lovely little message for her pregnant friend, showing that she is in full support of her little family.
“So proud of my dear friend, and new mama to be, @amberrosetamblyn Check out her piece on @glamourmag Whatever your beliefs, one thing is certain, the world must be a better, safer place for women and girls,” The Shallows star wrote.
