Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are widely regarded as the dreamiest celebrity couple, which might be why you'd be interested to know the history of their relationship timeline, starting from the most recent update...
15 February 2021
Blake and Ryan celebrate Valentine's Day with sweet Instagram posts. The actress shared a video of Ryan helping out with her lockdown hair (do you think he'd do ours too?), with a tongue in cheek caption. "That time I f*d my hairdresser," she wrote, before sharing a selfie of the pair with her more-than-passable new roots on show.
Ryan, meanwhile, shared a sweet video of Blake sledging and a throwback photo of the pair looking glammed up. He also shared some sweet selfies on his Stories. "My forever valentine for the foreseeable future," he wrote. THESE TWO.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are cast as the lead roles in Green Lantern, and together make their first public appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego. At this time, Blake was dating her Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley, while Ryan had been married to Scarlett Johansson since September 2008.
Blake splits from Penn, with a source at Us Weekly claiming it was amicable and that: "they're still good friends and hang out on the set."
She presents him with the 'Most Anticipated Movie' gong for Green Lantern at Spike TV's Scream Awards.
Ryan and Scarlett released a joint statement confirming they were getting a divorce. They said"
"After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we've decided to end our marriage. We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated."
Ryan and Blake pose together at Warner Bros. Pictures Presentation of The Big Pictures 2011 at CinemaCon.
Ryan opens up to Details magazine about his divorce, moving forward and future relationships. Certain key quotes include:
"Anyone who gets divorced goes through a lot of pain, but you come out of it. I'm not out of it yet. At all. But I sense that as I do come through it, there's optimism. How can there not be? I don't think I want to get married again, but you always reevaluate these things."
"Relationships ending move you from who you were to who you are at a much more accelerated rate than almost anything else on Earth...I'm very happy not to be in a relationship right now. That's OK. I didn't plan on it, that's for sure . . . but that's okay."
Blake is rumoured to be dating Leonardo DiCaprio at this point (though it's never confirmed). She's photographed with Ryan at the MTV Movie Awards on the 5th, and later at the red carpet premiere of Green Lantern on the 15th. The film comes out on June 17th.
People report Blake and Ryan "are very much a couple" and "they're really happy together", after she's spotted leaving his apartment during filming for action film in R.I.P.D. in Boston on his birthday weekend.
Blake and Ryan are spotted holding hands for the first time, after he takes her to his hometown in Vancouver, Canada, to meet his family.
The pair are spotted again hanging out in New Orleans, where Ryan owns a house in the country.
Blake and Ryan head back to Vancouver to visit his family, take a ferry ride in Nanaimo, British Columbia, and go out for dinner with his brother.
Surpriiiiiise! The couple tie the knot at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, SC (aka, the dreamy location where scenes for The Notebook were filmed) in front of a number of friends and family. Photos from the ceremony were never released, though details about their gorgeous wedding cake, Blake's Marchesa "cloud-like" gown and incredible 'dessert table' made it sound incredible.
Blake gushes over her new husband and their wonderful marriage in the October issue of Allure magazine, commenting: "Right now, I'm so peaceful. I've never been happier in my life."
The pair go on a romantic weekend away to Paris, where a source told Us Weekly they couldn't keep their hands off of each other. "They were kissing the entire time," the eyewitness said. "The locals said hello, but they were only interested in each other."
Blake and Ryan attend The Sound of Change Live concert at Twickenham Stadium in London and are later photographed leaving a fancy restaurant.
"I was recently asked how my style has changed since I got married, as if I was living under some sort of dictatorship", she explained. "I'm very lucky to be with someone who has better taste than me. We influence each other in different ways. With film and TV, you don't see the results for months. Building a home, you get immediate gratification."
The couple attend the A Funny Thing Happened On the Way To Cure Parkinson's event benefiting The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research in NYC.
Blake and Ryan become the absolute couple dream as they attend the Met Gala together, and reportedly skip the after-parties to eat hot fudge sundaes with peanut butter sauce at NYC hot spot Serendipity.
She tells Vogue magazine that they are practically tied at the hip, saying of Ryan: "Everything we do in life we do together. I get to share my life with the person he's become, and we get to grow from there."
Blake hints to Marie Claire that she's keen to have children, opening up: "He's my best, best friend. What do you do with your best friend? You do nothing. If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would."
Hooray! Blake announces on her website Preserve that she and Reynolds are expecting their first baby via this photo:

Ryan Reynolds reveals his daughter's name, telling the TODAY show: "It's James. Everyone knows. I didn't want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media, because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls and little teenage girls sometimes scan through the archives and go, 'Why did you do that?'"
Blake gives Ryan a bizarre-but-amazing Christmas present, which he shared a picture of along with the caption: "Mrs @blakelively had this made by AdoraWools. Nothing says "I love you" like a felt #Deadpool, holding a chimichanga while riding a Unicorn dressed in ass-less leather chaps. Amaright fellas?"
Blake and Ryan attend a fan event for his latest film Deadpool, as well as the amFAR New York Gala, while he opens up to Entertainment Weekly about how they first got together. He commented:
"We were buddies then. I remember it was funny because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and all that stuff, 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 [from their perspective] probably because we were just like fireworks coming across."
Ryan shares the first photo of baby James with the world:
The pair look incredible as they attend the State Dinner at the White House in Washington DC.
Us Weekly confirm they're expecting their second child, after speculation about whether Blake is pregnant on the set of The Shallows started doing the rounds.
Blake gushes about their relationship to Marie Claire, telling the magazine: "I knew he would always be my best friend for my whole life. That was the biggest thing to me. I'd never known anything like the friendship that I had with him. I could like him as much as I loved him."
Page Six confirm that Blake and Ryan have welcomed their second baby, as Blake throws Ryan the most adorable 40th birthday party in the restaurant they fell in love in.
She shared a photo on Instagram of them, along with the caption: "_@o_ya_ We fell in love at your restaurant in Boston. We stay in love at your restaurant in NY. Thank you for the BEST food and memories! You are our FAVORITE!! Another happy birthday with @vancityreynolds . Hey, Reynolds, I like you a whle lot. Just sayin'..."
Ryan Reynolds opens up to Q magazine about the moment he knew Blake was the one, and instantly melts all our hearts.
"We were hanging out at this little restaurant in Tribeca that's open really late, and this song came on and I was just like, 'Want to dance?'" he recalled. "No one was in there, so it was just totally empty. And it was just one of those moments where halfway through the dance, it was like, 'Oh, I think I just crossed a line.'
"And then I walked her home. And, uh, you know, I don't really need to go into what happened after that."

"My first job was delivering newspapers for the Vancouver Sun," Ryan wrote to his 31 million followers. "The house in the painting is my childhood home. My brothers and I spent years trying to kill each other on that lawn. There are a lot of Easter eggs in the painting, including my idol, John Candy on the front page of the newspaper.
"The house no longer stands but it’s a living, breathing thing in my head. This piece of art is the greatest present my wife has ever given me. It was created by @dannygalieote. If there’s ever a fire, I’m grabbing this first. I’ll come back for Blake."

Xoxo, Ryan Reynolds finally revealed if he had ever watched wife Blake Lively in Gossip Girl. Has he spotted Serena Van Der Woodsen on the Met steps? And what does he think of Dan Humphrey?
While we don't actually know the answer to that, the actor did reply to a fan on Twitter, admitting he had ~drunk~ Gossip Girl up with his eyes, which we assume means he sucked it up!
"I need to know if @VancityReynolds has watched Gossip Girl. I NEED to know," the fan wrote, to which Ryan replied, "I didn’t watch it. I drank it through my eyes."
I didn’t watch it. I drank it through my eyes.
