Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are #couplegoals for many reasons, only one of which is that they're so clearly really, really, really ridiculously into each other (oh, and good looking). The couple also poke fun of each other constantly on social media, showing that Yes, Stars Are Just Like Us! Blake and Ryan celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary on September 9, so to celebrate, take a look at some of the best photos from their relationship.

Our very first public appearance for these two! It's one for the scrapbooks–the duo first appeared together to promote their film Green Lantern at 2010's Comic-Con in San Francisco. The loving gazes started early, it appears.

Months before the couple confirmed their relationship, the pair showed an early connection while promoting the film that brought them together, Green Lantern. Again with the gazing!!!

At the Los Angeles premiere of the superhero movie, Blake and Ryan walked the red carpet and joked around. The best part of this photo, however, is the late Michael Clarke Duncan in the back, smiling like he's got a secret. The secret is Blake and Ryan's chemistry is palpable, everyone was smiling.

One of many Met Gala appearances the duo will make together, but this one's particularly special. Blake's protective hand on her husband's waist is a signature red-carpet move for the two of them, who literally look like Barbie and Ken here. Am I wrong?

LOOK AT RYAN'S FACE! (Also: Blake Lively's hair!) That's a man in love, everyone. It's so romantic I may faint.

These two are literally the Homecoming King and Queen of Hollywood. The Captive may have taken place in the freezing cold, but every thing about these two is fire.

We have so many questions:

1) What happened to make Blake make this face?

2) Why is Ryan so confused?

3) How do they both look so incredible while looking like total doofuses?

Look at the way these two stare off into the distance, like they can see the future. And what's ahead for them? The future will bring them daughters James (who we can see here as the bump in Blake's belly!) and Inez would follow two years later, in 2016.

Blake's dress may be beaded, but these two are straight up gems. The only possible reason Blake's hair is parted to the side like that is that it wants to get closer to Ryan Reynolds. Seems possible, right?

Honestly, we should give these two an award for the quality of their ability to gaze lovingly into each others' eyes. Is there a Guinness Book of World Record for Most Loving Gazes on the Red Carpet? If not, there totally should be, and Blake and Ryan would win by a landslide.

This feels like we've caught them in an intimate moment, like they're whispering sweet nothings in each other's ears and just telling each other they love the other... over and over and over again.

These two are famous for forever trolling each other on the internet and finding the humor at all times. Even on the red carpet, it seems.

Have you ever walked into a conversation where there was a private joke going on and you wanted nothing more in the entire world than to know exactly what they're joking about and how you can be a part of their world? This photo is the embodiment of that feeling. What are they joking about? Can I laugh along too?

"Ryan had a nice, normal upbringing, and we want our kids to have the same normal life that we had," Lively told Marie Claire in 2016. "We don't ever want to rob them of what we had, because we'd feel really selfish." No selfishness spotted, but look at how cute the family is!

"I'm very lucky to be with someone who has better taste than me," Lively said in 2013. "We influence each other in different ways." This is such a gorgeous candid, we couldn't help but include it because the best moments of love aren't always caught by the red carpet cameras.

Seriously, Blake and Ryan are cute enough, but what about their daughters James and Inez? Look at how precious they are. James' little sneakers and Inez being affectionately soothed by her dad has me in overdrive.

Honestly, I was so distracted by how happy Blake looks and how Ryan Reynolds seriously looks like Clark Kent in those glasses to even notice Mickey Mouse. Mickey Mouse is dressed like Santa Claus, and I still didn't see him,

If I were to guess the official caption of this photo, it would be "Reynolds uses off-color humor to compliment his wife, Lively, who reacts like she's trying to keep her cool in front of others." It's not working, Blake, but you two look adorable.

"He’s always good to me," Lively told Us in 2014 about her husband. "That’s like a jerky thing to say because you want to be able to complain about your husband and be that person, but he takes pretty good care of me."

Her signature pose is back, but this time, the look they're giving each other requires no possessiveness or protectiveness. This is Blake's man, and we're never going to forget it. (Not that we want to.)

For Humans of New York, Ryan said about Blake, “She always responds with empathy. 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.”

Talking to Marie Claire in 2014, "We've never gone a week without seeing each other. There's no major decision that I make without him. The best part is when we turn off our phones and just talk and hang out," Lively said. "He's my best, best friend. What do you do with your best friend? You do nothing."

The pair work miraculously well together, both on-screen and off. Lively explained in a 2014 interview, "Everything we do in life we do together. If I'm working on a movie, he helps me with my character; I do the same with him. Picking out a coffee table. What we're going to eat. He's a beautiful writer—he's written a lot of stuff for us. And he's got a great barometer and he knows me, so he will tell me if it's not as good as it can be."

Calling all basketball recruiters: please take note from Blake Lively as to how a basketball jersey is meant to be worn, please. Ryan looks like a hot college professor/reluctant basketball coach. I would watch this film, no matter what the plot is.

"I'm not one for vomiting declarations of sentiment out across the airwaves, but when we had that baby, I fell more in love with my wife than I'd ever been in my entire life. I couldn't even believe it." Ryan gushed to David Letterman on The Late Show in 2015. We can believe it though, Ryan. We can see it with our own eyes.

Okay, the way they're gazing at each other is TOO MUCH, but also... look at the outfit coorindation. Him in dark grey, her in black-and-white plaid... it's like they planned it. And even if they didn't, we're going to pretend they did because looking this good shouldn't happen by accident.

Oh my god. Oh my god. This looks straight out of any romantic comedy I would watch in a heartbeat. Doesn't it look like she's swooning over something he said and he caught her? These two are always making me wish I was in their relationship. I'm swooning too, Blake.

"I knew he would always be my best friend for my whole life. That was the biggest thing to me. I'd never known anything like the friendship that I had with him. I could like him as much as I loved him." Blake gushed to Marie Claire.
