And we love him for it.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are undoubtedly one of Hollywood’s golden couples - they’re beautiful, talented, hilarious and so damn cute.
In fact it’s almost embarrassing how much joy we experience from watching them interact or speak about one another, with Ryan in particular never missing an opportunity to shower his wife in compliments.
‘My wife, Blake, is like an alien, like MacGyver had a baby with Brigitte Bardot,’ he once announced. ‘The most interesting thing about me is her.’
In fact he has made it so clear that Blake is so far out of his league that other A-listers have started teasing him, with Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda jokingly referring to the actor as ‘Mr Lively’ during a promo for their upcoming film Book Club.
Ryan however certainly didn’t seem to mind, proudly taking to the red carpet of the New York premiere of Deadpool 2 alongside his wife this week, and admitting ‘Oh, I’m Mr Lively 24/7 and I’m happy about it.’
He continued: ‘It’s great - it’s the best gig.’
‘Oh, I’m a little more [sentimental],’ the actor went on to tell People. ‘I can lay it on pretty thick. I’ve always been sentimental — since I was a kid.’
And he’s just as sentimental about his kids as he is about Blake, as proven in his famous interview with David Letterman.
'I used to say to [Blake], "I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you." I would say that to my wife,’ he explained after the birth of his first daughter. ‘And the second I looked in that baby's eyes, I knew in that exact moment that if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby.'
He continued: 'I'm not one for vomiting declarations of sentiment out across the airwaves, but when we had that baby, I fell more in love with my wife than I'd ever been in my entire life. I couldn't even believe it.'
These two are too much.
