Ryan Reynolds, always the jokester.
The "Deadpool" actor put a little twist on the traditional sweet social media birthday post on Friday when he wished his wife, Blake Lively, a happy 30th birthday.
“Happy Birthday to my amazing wife,” he captioned a photo of the pair at the 2014 Met Gala. The only problem was that Lively was largely cropped out of the frame, leaving Reynolds nearly solo in the picture.
Fans of the couple appreciated the playful trolling and complimented Reynolds, 40, on his fun-loving ways.
“Hahaha true love!” one fan wrote. Added another, “Wife? Where is she? I can’t see any wife.”
(Lively celebrated her birthday during the weekend with a get-together that included fellow actress Anna Kendrick.)
Both Reynolds and Lively have been known to crack jokes on social media, sometimes at each other’s expense.
In April, Lively shared a photo of Reynolds accidentally photobombing a shot of John Legend performing at the TIME 100 Gala. She added the caption, “Congratulations to the most influential person in my life. The best man I know ... you deserve this @time 100 honor ... If only my husband wasn’t blocking you in this shot. I’m so sorry @johnlegend.”
Other times, however, the pair does manage to be earnest in their praise of one another. In December, when Reynolds was honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Lively took to Instagram to gush about her husband.
“@vancityreynolds The permanence of your impact is undeniable ... Always has been, but now we have a fancy (star) to show for it,” she captioned the photo.
