While Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are well known for their years-long public trolling of each other, they aren’t beyond flirting on the internet either. Lively had her own moment this weekend when she reposted a photo she took of Reynolds sitting out with his biceps on display.
Reynolds featured the pic on his Instagram Story first and gave Lively photo credit. He kept his caption about summer versus winter in New York City.
Lively made her post about him, naturally. She shared it to her Instagram Story and added her own flirty commentary via “caution: extra spicy” and hot sauce stickers.
Reynolds and Lively have been married for over 10 years and have four children. They welcomed their fourth baby just a couple months ago, subtly announcing the birth on Super Bowl Sunday. Lively appeared, visibly not pregnant, in a shot of the pair that evening.
In mid-February, Reynolds offered some of his first public comments on being a father of four, along with how he and Lively are doing with their newest addition. “We’re very excited. Look, we wouldn’t do this four times if we didn’t love it,” he told CNBC’s Power Lunch. “Everybody’s doing great. Everybody’s actually doing fantastic. If we hadn’t figured it out by now, I think we’d be in deep, deep trouble.”
He declined to share the baby’s name or sex. “I ain’t telling,” he said when asked if he and Lively welcomed a boy or girl. “This ain’t a birth announcement.”
Lively and Reynolds’ three older children are all girls: James, 8, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3.
