Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds seem to have signed a multi-million dollar contract to play each other’s best hater on the Internet. But their love becomes clear as day whenever they are together, be it on the red carpet or with award show speeches. After getting married to each other in 2012, the two have remained one, if not the most, unproblematic couple in Hollywood. They may be each other’s best trolls on the Internet, but they are also each other’s best supporters in real life. However, like any couple, Lively and Reynolds also have ups and downs.

With their highs being Blake Lively buying an ESPN+ to watch her husband’s crippling anxiety live, it almost seems as if it is impossible for the couple to have a low. But there was a very public low where Lively questioned why she was even married to Ryan Reynolds.

Lively and Reynolds have been married for decades (feel free to say ‘Touchwood!’). And during this tenure, apart from some above-the-belt trolling, Reynolds and Lively have never had any serious troubles in marriage. At least in the public eye. This has a lot to do with the fact that Lively and Reynolds are two peas in a pod, almost always in sync with each other. Or so we thought. In 2020, as Ryan Reynolds celebrated his 44th birthday, the A Simple Favor actress revealed that Reynolds prefers a birthday pie. To further amp up the fury, she also revealed that he eats the cake/pie without blowing out the candles first.

The revelations of someone who takes birthday cakes seriously almost seem blasphemous. And Lively happens to be one of them as she wrote, “I honestly can’t believe we’re still married.” But given the fact that she went out of her way to bake him the birthday pie, we are sure it was all good fun.
