In terms of Hollywood couples, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are now royalty, but the Detective Pikachu star and the Age of Adaline actress were once simply two pals out on a double date – with other people!
"We went on a double date," Reynolds told Entertainment Weekly's SiriusXM show in February 2016. She was on a date with another man, and I was on a date with another woman — and it was the most awkward night for both of us because we were like fireworks coming across."
Despite this, the Critics' Choice winner expressed gratitude that the two began as "buddies." "It was weird because when Green Lantern came and went and all that stuff, we were both single for about a year," he recalled of their 2010 collaboration. "I believe that the greatest approach to start a relationship is as friends."
According To Uswhispers
It's obviously worked out for the two of them. They not only married in September 2012, but they've since adopted three children into their family.
James and Inez, born in 2015 and 2016, respectively, and a third daughter, born in the summer of 2019, are the couple's children. Baby No. 3 is due in October 2019, according to Us Weekly.
Taylor Swift released "Betty" on her Folklore album about a year later, prompting suspicion that the pair named their youngest daughter Betty — she also sung about Inez and James on the song. The musician stated in August 2020 that she "named all the characters in this novel after my friends' children."
