Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – “Gossip Girl” alum Blake Lively and actor Ryan Reynolds reportedly met at the set of “Green Lantern” and the “Deadpool” star talked about their first date.
Reynolds was recently interviewed on SiriusXM and while chatting with Entertainment Weekly’s editorial director, Jess Cagle , he was asked about how his relationship began with his now-wife, Lively.
Reynolds shared, “For about a year Green Lantern had come and gone, 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. That was the most awkward date for the respective parties, because there was just fireworks coming across.”
He pointed out that it was weird at first but they have been friends for a long time and he thinks that the best way to start a relationship is to have established friendship first. Reynolds, however, did not go into detail on how their relationship flourished and when they decided to get married.
The actor also talked about how their daughter, James, changed their lives. He shared, "One of the most common things in the world is making out, having a couple of drinks, and then doing it, and then having a baby. I was perfectly sober for this one though. I gotta say. It’s amazing. I just always marvel how common it is and yet how profound it is. And I always laugh because you know celebrities you always cringe when they talk about their kids. Like 'my child is the only one that has ever exited a womb out, ever.'"
He also said that he truly worships his daughter and he loves being a father to her. He did joke, however, that it’s terrible on the other side as she has him wrapped around her finger adding, “She says 'dada' and I will walk through a cement wall to get to her.”
Just recently, the well-loved couple was spotted on a rare red carpet appearance. Lively and Reynolds appeared on the premiere of “Deadpool” earlier this week.
