Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have a tradition of looking at everything in life with humour. The couple often poke fun at each other on social media, and yesterday, when Blake turned 36, everyone was expecting a new batch of ridiculous photos with the birthday girl from Reynolds. But Ryan surprised everyone again. In his profile, the 46-year-old actor published an unexpectedly touching confession to his beloved, and along with it – a series of photos showing that even after 12 years (and that’s how many stars are together), there is room for tenderness and love in their couple.

“The only thing that irrevocably belongs to me in the world is the love, appreciation and awe I have for this person. Observing her life is something I couldn’t take for granted even if I tried. And, believe me, I tried.”

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds met in 2010 on the set of the film “Green Lantern”, a year later they had a relationship, and in 2012 they secretly tied themselves in marriage. Together, the couple are raising four daughters – 7-year-old James, 5-year-old Inez, 2-year-old Betty and a six-month-old baby, whose name the couple have not yet declassified.
