Ryan Reynolds has been known to show off how positively smitten he is by Blake Lively in the past - he broke a golden Cannes rule so that she wouldn't feel lonely on the red carpet, and has even smuggled apple pies across the Canadian border to surprise her.
Ryan worked closely with Blake when filming on the set of The Green Lantern in 2010. Blake had recently broken up with Penn Badgley, and Ryan was finalising his divorce with Scarlett Johansson.
Ryan revealed in an interview with E! that he had a crush on Blake when he praised her baking skills:
"Oh, she's quite a baker. There's nothing she can't cook, that's sort of the problem...aren't actors supposed to be out causing massive amounts of bad press and trouble? But this girl's in a kitchen all day, baking our crew on our movie—everything you can imagine. I mean she had soufflés coming! What's weird is she would live 30 minutes away but when she brought stuff it was still warm. I think there's an Easy Bake Oven in her car."
At that time, Blake Lively was rumoured to be dating Leonardo DiCaprio, and he also had only praise for her baking skills. A source told US Weekly: "She stayed with him in L.A. recently and spent the whole time baking. Leo's never dated a girl who can cook. And he's smitten!"
And by the looks of things, her baking skills would probably steal our hearts too!
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds realised they had a connection when they went on a double date with different partners and ended up feeling chemistry between them instead. And with a daughter together and another baby on the way, the rest is history!
