Celebrity husbands are no slouches when it comes to celebrating birthdays. David Beckham made us swoon with his super sweet message to wife Victoria, while JT’s adorable sentiments for wife Jessica Biel made us green with envy. And Ryan Reynolds? Well, he’s in a category all his own.
Rather than gushing over his partner of five years for her big 30th birthday, the actor took to Instagram with a hilarious birthday wish for the books. “Happy Birthday to my amazing wife,” the 40-year-old wrote. Yet it was his strategically cropped snap of the pair that had us in stitches. Rather than posting your run-of-the-mill couple’s pic, the Deadpool 2 star chose one from the 2014 Met Gala… zoomed right in on his handsome face, unapologetically cropping out 75 percent of his gorgeous wife’s.
Clearly, his fans we’re amused — in just 12 hours, the hilarious post has been liked over a million times on Instagram.
The birthday girl has yet to react to the, err, sweet wishes, as she spent her big day working, filming A Simple Favor with Anna Kendrick in Toronto, Canada. But given the fact that she reportedly laughed at her man blasting “Let’s Get It On” while she was in labor, we’d be willing to bet she has a pretty great sense of humor.
In fact, the beauty has been known to do some trolling of her own. When Reynolds made TIME’s 100 list earlier this year, she took to Instagram to congratulate “the most influential person in my life”… John Legend!
Aaaand we’re officially crying! These two really are the sweetest. Happy birthday, Blake!
