I don’t want to be gross, but I actually threw up in my mouth just after I typed that headline. Like, I finished typing out “cute couple” and the next thing I knew, I had vomit inside of my mouth. Whether it’s from the thought of those lovebird assholes, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, or from the amount of discounted Christmas candy I’ve had today, we may never know.
But ok, for real, these crazy kids are kind of adorable, and I don’t get it. When they’re apart, they’re a couple of my least favorite celebrities: I’ve always thought, despite popular opinion, that Ryan has one of the biggest douchefaces known to man, and I don’t think I actually need to list any reasons for disliking Blake. But when their powers unite … I don’t hate it.
Especially if it involves cupcakes:
It was a crisp 35 degrees in Vancouver on December 20. So naturally, Blake Lively was all bundled up while picking out a birthday cake with her new boyfriend, Ryan Reynolds, for his dad at Original Cupcakes. But the Gossip Girl star really warmed up when the Canada native selected a few special treats just for her.
“The salesperson told them Jay-Z had come in a few days earlier and bought an eggnog cupcake for Beyonce,” a source tells Us, “So Ryan ordered six of them for Blake!”
That kind of simple romantic gesture is one way the actor, 35, has won over Blake after two months of dating. And sources say Lively, 24, is just as giving.
“She’s making an equal, is not greater, effort to make Ryan happy,” says one insider of the couple. Indeed, a caring girlfriend who whips up homemade dinners and prefers home-movie nights to premieres seems to be an ideal antidote for Reynolds after his rocky marriage to Scarlett Johansson.
“Scarlett treated Ryan badly, so he loves the comfort that Blake provides,” says the source. “It’s like, ‘You were on the cover of Vogue and you want to cook me dinner? Yes, please!’”
While in Vancouver, a Reynolds family dinner was on the itinerary, and a trip to the Granville Island Public Market, where Lively bonded with Reynolds’ mom, Tammy. “Blake and Ryan held hands and Tammy had her hand on Blake’s back as they walked around,” says an eyewitness. “They laughed all the way to the car – and Blake let Tammy have the front seat!”
The duo is making the most of their holiday time together – “They love to sit at home and cuddle,” adds the insider. “Those two are over-the-moon in love.”
See what I mean? Despite the ridiculous “Blake let Tammy have the front seat,” that sounds like an adorable little story, doesn’t it? Ryan buys Blake cupcakes and then they go home and cuddle. Beautiful. Plus, that little catty comment about how Scarlett Johansson treating Ryan badly is just icing on the cake. I love it.
What do you guys think? Are Blake and Ryan a cute little couple, or are they sickening with their gooey, sappy love?
