Ryan Reynolds Laughs Off Rumors That Marriage to Blake Lively is in Trouble

By  | 

We don’t exactly have a lot of hope in celebrity couples. Take a look at their success rates and you’ll understand why. Even Chris Pratt & Anna Faris couldn’t make their marriage work, and they seemed to both be in it for the long haul. Talk about being blindsided. Guess they were really just great actors at the end of their relationship, huh? *sigh*

HOWEVER, we still have a shred of hope for a select few pairs — including Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively. We know that their relationship began as a complete whirlwind, getting married less than a year after they started dating. Considering, at the time, Ryan had recently ended his marriage to Scarlett Johansson and Blake had recently ended her relationship with longtime boyfriend Penn Badgley, we weren’t sure how long they’d last. But they’ve been together longer than they were with any other partner, have two beautiful children and sing each other’s praises whenever possible, so they’ve already surpassed all expectations.

Ryan Reynolds Responds Blake Lively Marriage Rumors

So imagine our surprise when reports started claiming that there’s trouble in paradise. According to OK!, the duo’s been struggling “to find quality time together” because of their very busy work schedules. “The past few years, Ryan’s been working out of town while Blake stays home with the kids. The distance between them has taken its toll.”

We would’ve commenced a freakout… had the 41-year-old Deadpool actor not addressed the rumors plaguing his relationship with the 30-year-old Gossip Girl alum head-on:

“I wish. I could use a little ‘me time,'” Ryan jokingly wrote in response to International Business Times‘ report on the news. How very… Ryan Reynolds of him.

Besides laughing off the BS, how do they make their marriage work? “My husband and I don’t work at the same time, so we all go together as a family,” Blake revealed in an October 2017 interview with People. “If we’re away as a family, it’s never more than for a day. We stay together.”

Stay classy, you two!
