Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds First Love Moment Happened During Awkward Double Date With Different Partners
Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds are considered to be one of the most picture perfect pairs in Hollywood. Before having children, the beautiful couple was considered as "couple goals." Now that they have children, they are what most would call "family goals." But did you know that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were dating other people when they first met each other?
According to Pop Sugar, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were actually dating other people when they first met in 2010. The two Hollywood A-listers worked on a movie project together, playing the lead roles in "Green Lantern." Although they instantly clicked and became good friends on set, no romantic spark developed between the two.
During that time, Blake Lively was dating her on-screen partner on "Gossip Girl," Penn Badgley. Meanwhile, Ryan Reynolds was married to fellow Hollywood A-lister, Scarlett Johansson. It was only until a year later that the doors of destiny opened for Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, with the former already broken up with Penn Badgley and the latter recently divorced from Scarlett Johansson.
However, then single Blake Lively didn't end up in the arms of Ryan Reynolds right away. The "Gossip Girl" actress dated a few Hollywood A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio before being in a relationship with Ryan Reynolds. According to reports, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds hit it off when they both went on a double date but with different partners.
"She was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl," Ryan Reynolds said. "That was the most awkward date probably because we were just like fireworks coming across," he added.
Meanwhile, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds continued to be the epitome of a perfect couple as they set the goal for mushiness a bit higher on Valentine's day. According to Marie Claire, the couple celebrated Valentine's day early because Blake Lively had to work on the day itself. Ryan Reynolds's Valentine's present for his lovely wife was an 18-karat gold and diamond earrings by well known Beverly Hill jewel designer, Anita Ko.
