Blake Lively Pulls Off The Perfect Birthday Revenge On Ryan Reynolds

"Happy birthday, baby."

We already knew that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively were true #CoupleGoals, but this A-list duo has taken it to the next level. After Reynolds pulled off a hilarious joke for Lively's birthday, she has now returned the favor for his big day — and, to be honest, it's a really tough call for who out-pranked who.


For Lively's 30th birthday — back on August 25 — Reynolds posted a photo of he and his lady love. The catch? He totally cropped her out of it! "Happy Birthday to my amazing wife," the Deadpool actor captioned the red carpet snapshot.

Now, months later, for Reynolds' 41st birthday — yesterday, Octoboer 23 — we got to see Lively exact revenge against her husband. "Happy birthday, baby," the former Gossip Girl star captioned a photo of Reynolds. The catch for this one? His handsome face was cropped out, and we see Ryan Gosling front and center.

While it's impossible to tell who really won this war of wits, it seems as though Lively has declared victory over Reynolds with an appropriate GIF.

Prior to all the shenanigans, we saw Reynolds tweet about the kids he shares with Lively and how they surprised him on his special day. The only thing was that Reynolds didn't seem too into it — totally kidding, of course. (We think.)

In addition to seeing couples like Reynolds and Lively troll each other on social media (as well as be awesome parents), it's really great when co-stars do it as well — like Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence did in anticipation of Passengers. The only person better at pranks than all these other people, perhaps, is the master of scares: Ellen DeGeneres.

Other celebs take note and have as much fun as Reynolds and Lively do.
