Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are defying the odds as a Hollywood couple. The pair seem happy and healthy, both have successful careers, and their children are doing great.
Ryan’s always been a little bit gushy about Blake.
So what’s their secret?
According to both of them – the key lies in one very hard rule they have set for their family: only one of them works on a film at a time, so while one is shooting, promoting, etc. the other one stays home to be on parenting duty.
Blake told Glamour magazine:
Everything else comes second. We’ve each given up stuff we loved in order to not work at the same time. I’m fortunate to be in a place now where I get to find the material — a book or script — early and develop it. So I know ahead of time that I’m going to be working on this job at this time. And we can plan around it.
And recently Ryan shared his thoughts with People.
“It’s not that difficult [to juggle]. We don’t allow our film schedules to overlap and we are very conscious of being very present as parents. I come from a big family and so does Blake, and we both want to create a very warm and happy environment for our children …”
This is just the latest example of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively = goals.
Let us count the ways…

Apparently the #GreenLatern wasnt a complete waste of a Movie.

Looking at their filmographies, it looks like Ryan has been the stay at home dad for a while now.
Blake’s had a lot of smaller projects. She’s running the house as he works on promotions for Deadpool 2, but with Blake scheduled for a 2019 project, it looks like Ryan may be heading back home soon.
