14 Times Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds Made Us Believe in Love

Hollywood has been through its fair share of breakups and makeups, but there’s one couple giving us everlasting hope for true love—Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. The actors first met on the set of Green Lantern, before tying the knot in September 2012. However, Blake and Ryan didn’t actually make their first public appearance as husband and wife until May 2014, at the star-studded Met Gala. Since then, the duo has been serving up some serious #relationshipgoals. We’ve rounded up a few of their most swoon-worthy moments below! 

The way Blake can’t seem to contain her laughter whenever she’s around him

Or the way they gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes at red carpet events

Or the way they looked at each other while attending the Green Lantern premiere in 2011 

Even back then, we suspected a spark!

And the way they can’t help but get a little competitive sometimes

But it’s all right because, at the end of the day, they’re still supportive of each other’s careers

And let’s not forget this precious photo that Ryan posted after baby James was born

Or that time Ryan proclaimed his love for Blake 

Or when Ryan explained the first time sparks flew between him and Blake—while on a double date with other people

And that time Blake blessed our Instagram feeds with this picture

Or when this photo of the couple cooking surfaced online 

The couple that cooks together stays together, right?

And let’s not forget that time Ryan gushed about Blake while at a press event

Or this photo Blake posted on Instagram for Father’s Day 

We can see why People Magazine declared Ryan the “Sexiest Dad Alive.”

Or that time when Ryan got a little jealous of Blake and her costar

Or the time they got a bit handsy before a Deadpool screening


Two Deadpools, one cup. Your turn

If this couple doesn’t make you believe in love, we don’t what will.
