Ryan Reynolds perfectly trolls wife Blake Lively for her birthday

It’s their love language

Nothing says, “I love you” quite like a good troll...at least, according to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively.

Fans of the famous couple already know these two love to make fun of one another, and even on special occasions like birthdays, the jokes never stop. This week, Lively turned 34, and her husband had a (not so) sweet message about the day she was born.

This story starts earlier this week, when Reynolds shared a video on TikTok of himself dancing along to Mariah Carey’s 1995 hit single “Fantasy.” The song is heavily featured in his new film, Free Guy.

Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for the video to reach Mariah, which caused the five-time Grammy winner to duet the video on her own account and give the actor some serious side-eye for his questionable choreography.

Fast forward to Wednesday, August 25, Reynolds shared his excitement over Carey’s acknowledgement of his video, re-posting her TikTok video on his Instagram Story and calling it, “My favorite thing that’s ever happened on August 25th.”

Of course, his wife’s birthday also happens to be August 25.

While Blake didn’t acknowledge her husband’s latest troll, this is nothing new for the couple, who have become famous for making fun of one another every chance they get.

Most recently, prior to Reynolds’ sweet birthday wish, Blake was the one doing the trolling while celebrating the 10th anniversary of their first date, returning to the restaurant where their love story began.

“10 years later. We still go out on our ‘first date,’” The Gossip Girl actress wrote alongside a photo of the couple showing off their date night looks. “But in much more comfortable shoes.”

She went on to post a picture of Reynolds standing in front of Boston sushi restaurant O Ya, writing, “If it weren’t for this place. We wouldn’t be together. No joke. No restaurant means more to us.”

On Reynolds’ part, he also shared a selfie of the two of them in front of the restaurant, writing, “Our favorite restaurant with her 4th favorite date.”

The actor later reposted a different crop of the photo, writing an important disclaimer over his face.

“Posting this again because I cut out my wife‘s cute earrings,” he wrote. “She trained me better than this. Sorry if I let anyone down.”
