Blake Lively Can't Believe She's Still Married to Ryan Reynolds Because of His Birthday Behavior

Blake Lively shared a birthday post for Ryan Reynolds, trolling him for requesting a birthday pie and then eating a slice before blowing out his candles.

  • In an Instagram post on Friday night, Blake Lively shared pictures from her husband, Ryan Reynolds' 44th birthday celebration.
  • According to Blake, Ryan requested a birthday pie for the occasion, which he then proceeded to eat while his candles were still lit and on it.
  • Blake concluded her Instagram post by trolling Ryan, writing, "I honestly can’t believe we’re still married."

Ryan Reynolds (opens in new tab) just celebrated a birthday and you know what that means: Blake Lively gifted (opens in new tab) the rest of us with some annual birthday trolling (opens in new tab) of her husband.

Here's how the couple's latest adorable bit of social media teasing played out:

Ryan celebrated (opens in new tab) his 44th birthday this week, on Friday. As birthday boy, he was, of course, given the traditional birthday privilege of choosing a celebratory dessert. While most people opt for their favorite kind of cake for their birthday, Ryan called an audible and apparently requested a birthday pie—which he then proceeded to eat a slice (and, based on Blake's picture (opens in new tab) of the evidence, I'm using the word "slice" in the most liberal sense of the word) while his candles were still on said pie and on fire.

Blake summed the whole situation up in her caption on pictures from the big day (including, as I mentioned, one of the partially-destroyed, still on fire pie), writing:

"1) Who is the lost soul that selects birthday PIE. 2) What ANIMAL eats their cake (pie) without first blowing out the candles. @vancityreynolds that’s who. Happy Birthday. I honestly can’t believe we’re still married."

 Fun fact: Every time Blake and Ryan troll each other (opens in new tab) on social media, an angel gets its wings. And if it doesn't, it should.
