Blake Lively flirted with her husband Ryan Reynolds (opens in new tab) on his Instagram last week, and she took a moment last night to troll him on her own account. The actress posted an Instagram Story featuring a screenshot from her phone's photo app. "It's like my iPhone captured everything you need to know about my relationship in 2 simple images..." she wrote, with photos of Reynolds in a chicken cap and her looking unamused featured.

Consider it revenge for the birthday tribute Reynolds posted (opens in new tab) to his wife last month, where he shared a series of unflattering photos of her to troll her.

Lively is currently expecting the couple's third child. She announced her pregnancy in May at the premiere of Reynolds' film Detective Pikachu. Lively and Reynolds have two daughters already, James and Inez.

And while the two poke fun at each other (opens in new tab) on social media regularly, Reynolds has more seriously talked about the profound difference Lively has made on his life. At the 2017 Met Gala, Humans of New York featured the couple and a quote from Reynolds about Lively.

“She always responds with empathy," he said. "She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy. She’ll take the time to imagine what happened to a person when they were five or six years old. And she’s made me a more empathetic person. I had a very fractured relationship with my father. Before he died, she made me remember things I didn’t want to remember. She made me remember the good times.”
