This just in. Beloved celebrity couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary this weekend, marking the day with their daughters in the most relatable way: simply, by doing nothing.
“The best vacation we can have is to be able to do nothing with our family, so that’s what we did,” Lively explained to Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts on Wednesday, September 12.
Lively, the star of the upcoming film A Simple Favor, and Reynolds are parents to two girls, James and Inez (“Nezzie”). The couple’s eldest daughter had a few questions about the meaning of “anniversary,” which required some parental guidance. “I had to explain to my daughter what an anniversary is,” Lively laughed. “She’s like, ‘What is it? Does it mean you’re having another baby today?’ And I was like, ‘Dear God, no. It doesn’t. It means it’s our wedding’s birthday.'”
James’s voice, in fact, has a starring role in the opening sequence of Taylor Swift’s song, “Gorgeous.” Both Lively and Reynolds were spotted at one of Swift’s concerts this summer, going wild upon hearing their daughter’s line—“gorgeous”—open the track.
“We were very embarrassing,” Lively said. And despite the fanfare around the family, both Reynolds and Lively try to keep their girls out of the spotlight. “Our kids have very normal lives, as much as that’s possible,” she told Roberts on Wednesday. “So she didn’t even get a title on the album.”
She jokingly quipped, “I should be collecting royalties.”
Lively and Reynolds married in 2012 in a secret South Carolina wedding. For the occasion, the bride wore Marchesa.
