Some relationships are even better than fairytales. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are such a romantic couple. With their witty banter, lovely friendship, constant trolls and romantic gestures, the couple has gained themselves the status of Hollywood’s idealistic couple.
The two who have been married for 7 years now made headlines after welcoming their third child. The couple who have always been private about their children welcomed their baby two months ago, according to US Weekly. Although the sex or name of the baby is not known, it is a joyful moment for the two. Reynolds and Lively who already have two daughters James Reynolds, 4, and Inez Reynolds, 2 have always been keen on having a large family. “I’ve always wanted a big family. I’d love 30 [children] if I could,” said the actress to Allure Magazine.
In the past, the couple have opened about how they enjoy their role as parents. “I’m not one for vomiting declarations of sentiment out across airways, but when we had the baby, I fell more in love with my wife than I’d ever been in my entire life… I used to say to her, ‘I would take a bullet for you, I could never love anything as much as I love you.’ And then the second I looked in that baby’s eyes, I knew in that exact moment if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby… you can quote me,” said Reynolds in an interview with David Letterman.
Lively too has said that her kids are her number one priority. “…I hope that my girls always feel what a priority they are, and see that they can be professional, strong, powerful women and they can also be mothers, wives, and daughters,” said 32-year-old mother.
Balancing their work and family life, the couple tries to be together despite their busy work schedules. “All my eggs are in one basket, and that’s my family. That’s where my heart is. That’s where my everything is. That’s the thing that I feel most protective of and the thing that I feel is the most exposed when I feel exploited,” said Lively. “The kids stay with us, and the family stays together, and that is where home is,” added Reynolds.
Other than being family-oriented people, the two are known to be hardcore romantics declaring their love for each other on several occasions. The couple adores each other and has been very vocal about it. “He’s my best, best friend. What do you do with your best friend? You do nothing,” said Lively about her husband. Just like Lively, Reynolds too is seen to share the love for his wife. While accepting an MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance, the Deadpool star admitted he would do anything to see his wife smile. “I want to thank my wife. Everything I do is to make her laugh—especially the sex,” said Reynolds.
Reynolds and Lively who starred together in Green Lantern got together as a couple after their failed relationships. The duo who were seen hanging out with each other surprised the public in 2012 when they tied the knot in front of their friends and family. “Right now, I’m so peaceful. I’ve never been happier in my life. It’s the choice that you have to wake up every day and say, ‘There’s no reason today can’t be the best day of my life,'” said the Gossip Girl actress to Allure Magazine, as quoted by website Become Gorgeous.
Since then, the couple has seen to share a wonderful chemistry making the public gush over the two stars. They have become relationship goals for several people around the globe.
