Sometimes when you watch a couple and you just go, “Wow!”. You wish you had that with someone. Well, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are one of those couples. They have beautiful kids and we have always seen them happy and smiling. But have you thought about Ryan telling his children the story of How he met their mother?
Ryan Reynolds shares his story of how he met Blake. It was a hilarious yet beautiful accident that brought these two lovely people together. In My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, while making out-of-shape pizzas, David talks about Blake and Ryan’s relationship.
Ryan Reynolds almost got Blake Lively to marry this other guy
Ryan almost got his wife married to some other guy. The couple was working on Green Lantern. “We met on The Green Lantern. Maybe a year later we were on a double date, but not with each other. I said, ‘You should marry this other guy,’” Reynolds explained. “He seems great.”
When Ryan and Blake were working on Green Lantern, they both were dating someone else. The movie premiered in 2010. Ryan was married to Scarlett Johansson from 2008 to 2010. While Blake had gotten out of a long-term relationship with Gossip Girl, co-star Penn Badgley.
Of course, this is not the first time that Ryan has talked about this unfortunate double date. Because this was the date when Ryan realized He should be the one to date Blake and not that other guy. He has stated before as well, “We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl — and that was, like, the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across.”
On Will Arnett, Sean Hayes, and Jason Bateman’s Smartless podcast, Ryan shared what happened after that awkward date. He said that after that; they tried to stay in touch casually. Once, she was going to Boston and Ryan also happened to be going to Boston at the same time. He asked Blake to ride together. “We got on the train and rode together and then I was just begging her to sleep with me,” added Ryan.
This conversation during their first meeting led to the question of if Ryan ever felt like he was the one watching the kids and not Blake. Ryan, with no hesitation, said that it is a team effort. They both are a team when it comes to parenting.
During the entire episode, whenever Ryan talked about his relationship with Blake, it seemed like they were best friends. They love each other deeply and that was unmistakable during the MET gala 2022. When Blake showed off her outfit, Ryan’s expressions were priceless.
