Blake Lively Celebrates Ryan Reynolds’ 1st Father’s Day With Best Pic Ever
Mere months ago, we all were in agreement that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were beautiful people. Gorgeous, glossy-haired, fit, perfectly-tan-but-not-in-that-obnoxious-way-Chris-Pratt-was-in-Jurassic-World people whose offspring would be a formidable genetic combo of perfection. What we’ve learned in the short time that Blake and Ryan have joined Instagram is that they’re pretty effing funny too.
Topical case in point = the Preserve founder’s Instagram to celebrate hubby Ryan’s first Father’s Day. In a pretty, monochromatic (Valencia filtered?) waterside moment, Blake posted a photo of Ryan carrying their little baby James with the caption: “Happy Fathers Day!!! … @vancityreynolds Since the day our baby was born, I’ve felt so strongly in my heart that you were most likely the father. #ILoveYouSoMuchItsSilly”
This photo has a lot happening in it. From a quick glance, it’s just plain adorable, the caption is sweet as heck, but when you look closer you’re like, “Oh, wow, look at Ryan Reynolds’ off-duty dad-in-sneaks look, it’s so ‘just taking a stroll with my wife and daughter, no biggie’ and yet — those arms. That smile. I almost don’t care AT ALL that he’s wearing cargo pants.”
The Instagram, while cute and all of Ry, is also a sly first (okay, one of the first — Blake’s first) photo of James, Ryan and Blake’s bundle of undoubtedly cute joy. Sure, it’s only her polka dot socked tootsies, but what’s cuter than baby feet?!
And h/t to Blake for proving that an all-in-good fun paternity joke is the ultimate dad joke. See. Told you she was a hoot.
Happy Father’s Day, y’all!
