Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have a true eternal romance in Hollywood! Take a stroll down memory lane through this timeline of the couple’s relationship!
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are without a doubt one of the most successful couples in Hollywood – and not just because of their incredible resumes! These two, who have known each other for more than a decade, are one of the most beloved peers in the entertainment industry, and for good reason. Blake, 33, and Ryan, 43, have a love that is so sweet and adorable.
They don’t just love each other, they are best friends. It is so clear when these lovebirds talk about each other, are seen or mock each other on social media that Blake and Ryan have a unique and special bond that is completely unbreakable. Now, we’re taking a look at the couple’s romance from the beginning until now!
Sparks On Set
It all started in 2010, when Blake and Ryan met on the set of the movie Green Lantern. Blake played Ryan’s love interest in the film, which told the story of the origin of the iconic comic book character. At the time of filming, Blake and Ryan were with other people. Blake was dating his Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley, while Ryan was married to actress Scarlett Johansson. Ryan and Blake clearly had chemistry in the film, and that connection would turn into something more romantic.
The Romance Goes Public
In the fall of 2011, Ryan and Blake made their relationship public. At that point, Blake and Penn were no longer dating and Ryan and Scarlett were officially divorced. The couple was very reluctant to share details about their relationship, and their romance was actually confirmed by a source close to the couple – not the peers themselves. But it was very clear from the beginning how important your privacy was.
In September 2012, Ryan and Blake exchanged “me” at the Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, in front of their loved ones. Years after getting married, Blake and Ryan publicly shared that they were incredibly embarrassed by the decision to get married in what was once a slave plantation. “It is something we will always deeply and unreservedly regret,” Ryan shared in an August 2020 interview with Fast Company.
Married At The Met Gala
Almost two years after tying the knot, it was so clear to longtime fans of the stars that they were still in the honeymoon phase. The couple participated in the Met Gala 2014 in May of that year. Blake looked absolutely radiant and Ryan could barely take his eyes – or hands – from his stunning wife! Coincidentally, it was the first time that the two arrived on the red carpet as a couple.
Just two years after Blake and Ryan exchanged their vows, Blake announced that the couple was expecting their first child together. A few months after Blake shared the exciting news on her deleted lifestyle blog, she and Ryan welcomed their first child, a daughter named James, in January 2015. But the family of three would have another member not long after James was welcomed into the world.
A Family Of Four
In April 2016, it was confirmed that Blake and Ryan were expecting their second child together. Almost five months later, the couple became a family of four with the birth of their daughter Inez in September. After Inez was born, Blake and Ryan spent time with their daughters before going back to work. In 2018, Blake flexed his dramatic muscles in A Simple Favor, while Ryan wore his superhero costume for the 2018 Deadpool sequel. After his tremendous success, the couple relaxed with their daughters and reserved a surprise for fans!
The More The Merrier
In May 2019, Blake debuted her baby bump on the red carpet for the premiere of Ryan’s 2019 movie Detective Pikachu. Blake shone positively in her yellow dress, and Ryan looked so proud to have his wife by his side. The couple silently welcomed their third daughter in the fall of 2019. Although the baby’s name has been kept secret for months, fans noticed the couple’s friend, Taylor Swift, from the song “Betty” from their folklore album July 2019. The lyrics screamed Blake and Ryan’s two oldest daughters, with the song title revealing the name of their third daughter!
