These two

You can't deny that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are one of the cutest celebrity couples out there, making even the most cold-hearted of us feel all fuzzy inside with their adorable red carpet appearances.

And just to up that cute factor even more, the Lively's are now a family of four with their two daughters: James, who will turn two years old in January, and their recent arrival whose name we're yet to discover. The couple, who have been married for four years are the very definition of relationship goals.

The Deadpool actor is well known for his great sense of humour, with Ryan Reynolds' Twitter being our go-to place for mega lols. Naturally, his telling of the moment he knew Blake was 'the one' also has a touch of humour to it – but it's also *really* sweet. Prepare to feel all the feels, guys.

In a recent interview for GQ, Ryan joked that he fell in love with his wife 'Probably after the sex.' Come on Ryan, there was obviously more to the story than that.

'No, 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?" 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.'

Enough said there, then.

So what was the song that came on and prompted the romantic moment between the pair? Ryan was asked if he remembered it, but this was his (frustrating) response.

'I do, but I'm not going to say. You're shut out.'

Darn it.
