Blake Lively Celebrates Her Birthday With Cake And A Side Of Ryan Reynolds' Bicep

"Happy birthday to me."

Blake Lively saw in her birthday in style this week, with cake served up alongside a side of Ryan Reynolds’ bicep.

The former Gossip Girl star turned 33 on Tuesday, and days after her birthday celebration, shared a picture of her famous husband presenting her with what we can only assume was a home-made cake on her Instagram story.

However, after sharing the photo with her followers, it seemed that something else had caught Blake’s eye besides a slice of cake.

After noticing that the angle and lighting was really working for Ryan’s arms, Blake shared a further five posts on her story (yes, five actual posts) zooming in on the same photo.

The last pic was accompanied by the cheeky message: “Happy birthday to me.”

Well, if you can’t brag on your birthday, when can you?

Blake and Ryan have been married for almost eight years, tying the knot in September 2012.

Since then, they have welcomed three daughters, five-year-old James, three-year-old Inez and 10-month-old Betty.

The pair are known for having fun with one another on social media, with Ryan repeatedly cropping Blake out of the group photos he posts on his own Instagram.

Blake later got her own back by sharing a photo of fellow actor Ryan Gosling on her husband’s birthday.

We’re people that don’t take ourselves too seriously,” Ryan (Reynolds, not Gosling) said of his wife during a podcast interview in 2018. “The only people I really love to make fun of is us.”
