He continued: “I see you in the eyes of our children… Every laugh. Every blink and every thoughtful moment of vulnerability. The tender grit it takes to be a mother in 2021 is an act of pure strength and heroism.”
Ryan Reynolds played a small Mother’s Day prank on Blake Lively.
From there, the actor seemingly stepped outside reality to include a detail in the caption about how they met that is clearly designed to make his wife blush a bit.
“Never could I have predicted anonymous airport bathroom sex would lead to this,” he joked. “Or how you’d hire Dog The Bounty Hunter to find me. Either way, I’m lucky to reflect a little of the sunlight you shine on all of us. Happy Mother’s Day, my love.”
In actuality, Reynolds and Lively met while working as co-stars on the 2011 DC Comics superhero movie “The Green Lantern,” which was maligned by both fans of the comics and critics alike. In fact, Reynolds made a joke out of how bad the movie was in a scene from his much more successful superhero venture, “Deadpool 2.”
Although Reynolds had the last laugh, it’s only a matter of time before Lively gets in a social media dig of her own. The two trade little pranks back-and-forth on social media all the time. Most recently, People notes Lively shared a series of images of their outing to Yankee Stadium for a ball game. In her Instagram Story at the time, she captioned an image of herself and her husband writing, “I love meeting fans,” implying that she doesn’t recognize Reynolds.
