Ryan Reynolds Trolled Blake Lively *and* Their 18-Month-Old Daughter Betty on Instagram

Ryan Reynolds complaned Instagram about his 18-month-old daughter Betty's obsession with "Baby Shark," which he plans to cure by showing her The Shallows.

  • In a new Instagram post on Sunday afternoon, Ryan Reynolds managed to poke fun at his wife, Blake Lively, and youngest daughter, 18-month-old Betty, simultaneously.
  • "My one year old daughter is obsessed with Baby Shark," Ryan wrote in the post's caption. "All day. Every day. There’s only one way to fix this." The actor shared the poster and two stills from Blake's 2016 shark thriller The Shallows along with the message. 
  • Blake quickly responded, sharing Ryan's post on her Instagram Story along with the added caption, "...well at least they'll have ample content for therapy."

Sometimes it feels like Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's relationship (opens in new tab) is like one ongoing comedy routine made up of a series of inside jokes strung together for their fans to enjoy. Oh, and love. The comedy routine of inside jokes for public consumption on social media and love.

Earlier this weekend, Blake turned celebrating the birthday of one of her dearest friends (Gigi Hadid, FWIW) into an opportunity to playfully troll her beloved (opens in new tab) for the amusement of millions on Instagram. Ryan, never one to be outdone, took things to the next level on Sunday with a post that manages to drag not only his wife, but his youngest daughter (18-month-old Betty).

What did Betty—a baby—do to deserve being targeted for social media trolling by her own father? Listen to "Baby Shark" too damn many times, that's what.

"My one year old daughter is obsessed with Baby Shark," Ryan captioned his Instagram post, which also included the poster and two stills from Blake's 2016 thriller The Shallows, in which she plays a surfer terrorized by a particularly focused and angry shark. "All day. Every day. There’s only one way to fix this."

Blake didn't miss a beat though (opens in new tab) (she never does) and re-shared the post on her Instagram Story along with the caption, "...well at least they'll have ample content for therapy."
