Earlier this week, Sirius XM’s Entertainment Weekly got exclusive, never-before-heard details from Ryan Reynolds about how he and wife Blake Lively fell in love. As a new father, he also shares some parenting advice in addition to relationship tips.
Reynolds and Lively started out as just friends, but obviously, they started realizing a deeper connection as time went on. It was after a double date–each of them brought someone else–that it became clear they should’ve just gone on the date with each other.
We can only assume how the other two dates felt.
Later in the interview, Reynolds argues that “the best way to have a relationship is to start as friends.” It makes sense. You already know each other, so you don’t really have to explain yourself. For them, they already knew it worked!
Recently, the couple welcomed their beautiful baby girl, James, into the world. The best part? In a later interview on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Reynolds admits to playing Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” the entire time his wife was giving birth. Talk about having super cool parents!
I wonder if baby James will have any siblings in the near future! We’ll keep you posted.
