Ryan Reynolds says he knew Blake Lively was the one ‘AFTER the sex’

On the back of accidentally exposing his newborn’s gender to the world, Ryan Reynolds has revealed the moment he knew Blake Lively was the one.

Speaking to GQ magazine, the Deadpool star suggested his relationship with the Gossip Girl actress reached new heights following their first shared sexual experience.

When asked to pinpoint the moment he “knew it was going to happen” with Blake, the 40-year-old Canadian quipped: “Probably after the sex.”

Following his joke, the father of two recounted the real moment he fell for his second wife and, in true Ryan Reynolds style, the story has placed him and Blake right at the pinnacle of the #CoupleGoals ladder.

“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.’”

Ryan finished his tale by confessing that he escorted Blake home, before cutting just short of exposing the memory’s final details.

“And then I walked her home…And, uh, you know, I don't really need to go into what happened after that.”
