Deadpool's Ryan Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively, were good friends for years before they even realized they were in love with each other! From filming a movie together as superhero love interests, to going on double dates with significant others, the pair just always seemed to miss each other, until the day they didn't. Sound like the latest hit romantic comedy starring Julia Roberts? Except it's not!
Ryan recently revealed the very moment he knew he was in love with then friend, actress Blake Lively. The pair had been friends for years, and never considered a relationship an option, until a double date changed it all. Can we say:
"About a year after 'Green Lantern' had come and gone and we were both single we went on a double date -- she was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl -- and it was like the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across,"
"We were buddies for a long time, which I think is the best way to have a relationship, to start as friends,"
Awwww, and from then on, they were inseparable. The two were then married in 2013, and now are doting parents to their one-year-old daughter, James.
Ryan Reynolds is living the dream with his family, especially now that he has been redeemed from Green Lantern thanks to Deadpool. Deadpool premiered this weekend to rave critic and fan reviews, calling it a 'game-changer', and the Marvel film we deserve! Even Ryan's wife got in the Deadpool fun when she posted this photo of her and Ryan on Deadpool's lap, and Ryan, well, groping her in true Deadpool style!
Can we say relationship goals?
See 'Deadpool' in theaters everywhere now!
