Ryan Reynolds typically trolls Blake Lively whenever he posts about her on his social media. But yesterday was an exception…for the most part. The Canadian actor shared a Mother’s Day tribute to her, his mother Tammy Reynolds, and his mother-in-law (and Lively’s mother) Elaine Lively. He shared a photo of the three women together and added a sincere caption. There was one joke added in there though, because it’s not a Ryan Reynolds social media post without some dark humor.
“I salute these three incredible mothers for their wisdom, strength and ability to forever appear as though they’re standing at the doorway to their own surprise birthday party. #HappyMothersDay ❤️,” he wrote.
Lively didn’t respond in the comments, but she did like the post, and she recently chided Reynolds for his relationship with her mother on Instagram. When she announced the couple’s $1 million donation to coronavirus relief, she mentioned social distancing and Reynolds.
“Though we must be distancing ourselves to protect those who don’t have the opportunity to self quarantine, we can stay connected,” she started. “Remember the lonely and isolated. FaceTime, Skype, make a video. Remember the love that can travel through all this. Communities are stepping up—shopping for the elderly, making lunches for children. We can all do something for one another, even if that’s simply staying home. ❤️ Sending so much love. Now can someone please tell Ryan that ’emotional distancing’ from his mother in law is not a thing. Nothing can save him. ☺️”
