Hollywood actress Blake Lively has appeared in several films and two television series, including Gossip Girl which she is most easily recognized for. Although she has been able to register her name among Hollywood’s celebrities, a lot of people may not know that she was not originally interested in becoming a professional actress and even wanted to study at Stanford University, a private research institution located in Stanford, California. However, having an actor as a father and a talent scout as a mother, it was only a matter of time before she caught the acting bug and eventually started acting professionally at the age of 10 in 1998. 12 years later, she met her future husband in the line of duty and after two years, they tied the knot. Curious to know who Blake Lively’s husband is? Keep reading.
Who Is Blake Lively’s Husband
Blake Lively’s husband, just like her, is in the acting sector of Hollywood but unlike his wife who only acts, he is also into screenwriting, production of films, and is equally a comedian. Born Ryan Rodney Reynolds on October 23, 1976, Blake’s ‘Mr. Right’ is the youngest of the four sons born to James Chester “Jim” Reynolds and Tamara Lee “Tammy” Reynolds (née Stewart), a retail salesperson.
The actor born in Vancouver, British Columbia has Canadian-American nationality; he is of Irish descent and was raised in the Catholic faith. Ryan is a former student of Kitsilano Secondary School in Vancouver from where he graduated in 1994 before moving on to Kwantlen Polytechnic University. He later dropped out of the university to focus on his acting career which he started in 1991 with the starring role of Billy Simpson in the teen soap, Hillside. Thereafter, he appeared in several movies and television series but did not hit it big until 2016 when he landed a role as the titular character in the American superhero film, Deadpool.
The movie was a huge commercial success and also received positive reviews from movie critics, setting a lot of records at the time it was released. For his fantastic portrayal of the character, Blake Lively’s husband was nominated for a number of awards. Following the success of the movie, Deadpool 2 was released and Ryan Reynolds played the role again. As a result of his contributions to Hollywood, Reynolds earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017.
How Long Have They Been Together?
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds met for the first time in 2010 on the set of Green Lantern in which they both starred. By October of the following year, a report on Hollyscoop revealed that the duo was in a relationship and in line with the information, the couple tied the knot in 2012. Before then, they had already gotten engaged secretly.
Although the actors, being celebrities, live their lives in the spotlight, they chose to get married in private with just 60 guests in attendance, including Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel, and America Ferrera, all Blake’s Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costars. For the ceremony, which took place at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, the bride wore cloudlike silk tulle gown by Marchesa and a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes while her husband was dressed in a Burberry suit.
The pair have become one of Hollywood’s power couple over the years and have since expanded their family to four. They are parents to two beautiful daughters named James (born in December 2014) and Inez (born in September 2016). It was announced on the 2nd of May 2019 that Blake and her husband would be welcoming another child before the end of 2019. The happy couple lives with their children in Pound Ridge, New York, Westchester County.
Before Blake Lively’s husband met her, he had been engaged once and married once. He began a relationship with Alanis Morissette, a Canadian singer in 2002 and in June 2004, they announced that they were engaged. As fans of the entertainers waited to receive news of their wedding date, they were shocked with the announcement made by representatives of both parties, revealing that the duo had reached a mutual agreement to call off their engagement. This was in 2007.
Not long after that, Reynolds got involved with actress Scarlett Johansson. They got engaged in May of the following year and on September 27, 2008, they became husband and wife. Barely two years later, the duo separated and on December 23, 2010, Reynolds filed for their union to be officially annulled. On the 1st of July 2011, they both went back to being single.
