The beautiful Blake Lively has been glowing throughout her third pregnancy, but that didn’t stop husband Ryan Reynolds from taking a stab at highlighting her less-than-perfect prenatal moments. The couple often poke fun at each other on social media and Reynolds’ latest attempt — on Lively’s birthday, no less! — was no exception.
In the past, Reynolds posted a picture of his wife looking disheveled wearing baggy, mismatched clothes. It should be noted, though that Lively was in character on the set of her movie, The Rhythm Section. He captioned the photo #nofilter.
Reynolds also once wished Lively a happy birthday by cropping her almost completely out of a photo of the pair.
In return, Lively has posted a picture of the duo staring lovingly into each other’s eyes on the red carpet of the A Quiet Place premiere. She hilariously captioned the photo, “If there’s one thing I’m infinitely proud of in this picture, it’s the incredible hair styling that I did on myself.”
For her birthday this year, he went a step further, posting a series of images. The first one was a lovely shot of the couple, with Lively cradling her baby bump and smiling up at Reynolds. The ones that followed, though, were candid shots of Lively which often featured her with eyes closed or blurry. The thing is, though, Lively looked beautiful in all of them, even the ones where she’s making goofy faces.
As @robliefeld noted on the post, “There are no bad pictures of @blakelively.” Reynolds may have been attempting to poke fun at Lively being caught off guard, but he just confirmed what we already knew – unlike the rest of us, Lively really can’t take a bad picture.
Point: Lively! Sorry, Ryan. Maybe next year.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
