Blake Lively gave Ryan Reynolds a hard time for his 44th birthday.
In an image posted to Instagram, the “Gossip Girl” and “A Simple Plan” actress posted a shot of her husband with a birthday pie, complete with pink, yellow and green candles lit up.
Reynolds, who had a huge grin in the first photo, must have eaten some of his birthday pie before making his wish given the next image that shows a half eaten pie and still-lit candles.
Lively took the opportunity to poke fun at Reynolds, writing, “1) Who is the lost soul that selects birthday PIE. 2) What ANIMAL eats their cake (pie) without first blowing out the candles. @vancityreynolds that’s who.”
“Happy Birthday,” Lively continued. “I honestly can’t believe we’re still married.”
She continued the celebration for Reynolds on her Instagram stories, posting an image of “eco friendly” balloons she created with fruit, potatoes and ribbon, and sharing another image of the actor cross-eyed facing a bite of pie with a lit candle.
Earlier this week, Reynolds and Lively made a splash on Instagram of a different variety.
Reynolds, who is Canadian-born, shared details alongside Lively about his first time voting in the United States. But the couple’s message about the 2020 presidential election was nearly overshadowed by something fans noticed was missing on Lively’s feet – her shoes.
Fans were quick to point out that Lively, 33, was wearing drawn-on shoes in her photos (in Reynold’s post it’s clear she’s barefoot and on her tip-toes).
“It was Ryan’s first time. He was understandably scared. It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast. He wept. I pretended to weep. Then he called all his friend,” she captioned the photo with the hashtag #voteearly.
In a similar post to Reynold’s account, he wrote, “This is my first time voting in America. I’d like to thank my wife Blake for making my first time so gentle and loving. It was super scary at first, then exciting and now I’m a little tired. But proud. #VoteEarly”
The couple has been married since 2012 and share three children: Betty, 1, Inez, 4, and James, 5.
