Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively are “ridiculously in love,” he loves her “comfort”

In case you missed it yesterday, I ended up updating that story about Blake and her phantom baby bump. Page Six had a source who claimed that Blake was eating more than usual on the set of Gossip Girl, and that she was “glowing”… which obviously means BABY. Blake’s rep shut it down hard and fast, telling Gossip Cop that the Page Six story was “completely untrue” within hours of Page Six’s publication. So, what does that mean? Blake isn’t selling you babies. Yet. She’s selling you the ideas of babies, because she’s so young and fertile and she’ll get pregnant soon, but right now she’s just so crazy in-love and baking and food and BABIES! It’s a circular argument, you see? Anyway, Us Weekly managed to get a “tip” on how Ryan Reynolds loves the crap out of Blake’s happy-homemaker routine.

In Ryan Reynolds’ eyes — okay, in most guys’ eyes — Blake Lively is the total package.

The low-key duo and Green Lantern costars — who tied the knot in an intimate, top-secret Charleston, SC ceremony September 9 — first bonded during quiet date nights at Lively’s NYC apartment, where the actress showed off her culinary prowess. (“I love, love to bake!” Lively told Us Weekly last year.)

“Ryan loves the comfort Blake provides,” an insider tells Us. “It’s like, ‘You were on the cover of Vogue and you want to cook me dinner? Yes, please!’”

Echoes another source, “They are ridiculously in love.”

On Thursday, Lively, 25, headed back to work on the set of Gossip Girl in NYC, where two things were noticeably absent — her wedding ring, and that baby bump everyone has been on the lookout for.

That morning, her rep slammed a report in The New York Post’s Page Six that the actress and Reynolds, 35, are expecting, calling the rumors “completely untrue.”

Though she’s not pregnant now, kids might not be too far off for the head-over-heels newlyweds.

“I’ve always wanted a big family,” Lively told the October issue of Allure. “Oh, I’d love 30 [children] if I could.”

Here’s the thing – I think this is probably true. We can debate whether or not Blake’s happy-homemaker routine is for real, but I have no doubt that Ryan enjoys the way Blake is (or how she acts around him), and she must seem worlds more stable than Scarlett Johansson.

I’ve been actively avoiding using ScarJo’s name in all of these Blake and Ryan posts, but this Us Weekly story is ABOUT ScarJo and how Blake is so much better for Ryan than ScarJo. And that gives me mixed feelings, like I actually feel sympathetic towards ScarJo (who really doesn’t NEED my sympathy). For one, Scarlett was really young when she got together with Ryan. I’m not infantilizing her, I’m just saying… I think she was trying on the “wife/partner in a serious relationship” persona, and I’ve always felt like Scarlett got tired of playing that role pretty quickly, and her real personality came out. I think Ryan sees himself as a stable, conservative (conservative meaning “not crazy, not a womanizer”) dude who wants a family, and women that date him tend to tailor their personalities to fit with that. ScarJo couldn’t keep up the façade. As for Blake… either it’s not a façade and this is what she’s really like, or she’ll outgrow this happy-homemaker phase in a few years too.

Here are Blake’s Gucci ads again, just because how do we know that this marriage isn’t just some promotional scam for Gucci? HOW?

    I saw pics of them on DM and they were at some bed and breakfast inn. I am not sure if the photos were staged but the way they kept looking at each other and smiling seemed to warm and genuine to me.

    They have definitely grown on me as a couple and I wish them the best (though I doubt it would last…ya I know I simultaneously just threw some shade as well :P )

    • Mia 4S says:

      If the photos were the ones from Utah, of course they were staged. How many paparazzi hang out in rural Utah? ;-)

      They are very calculating, but then most stars are. If she’s happy doing the homemaker thing they’ll be fine. If she wants the superstar career too? Well that leaves much less time for baking for your man and that will be the end of that.

      Maybe she has realized she’s not very talented and wants to settle down, if so bless. As for Scarett? I think she’s happy with her billion dollar franchise and Broadway roles.

  2. Tiffany27 says:

    Saying he likes her “comfort” makes it seem like he married a minivan. She does seem genuinely to be the kind of girl he was looking for (he’s been engaged 3 times) so I hope it sticks for them or at least last 5 years, which is a long time in hollywood years.

    • Canda says:

      It’s possible she’s authentic, but because she’s an “actor” we tend to doubt her. I’m like this in real life, very Susie Homemaker and my favourite things to do are keep a clean, pretty house, cook, bake, do the laundry, mind the children, walk the dogs, do the gardening, and see my husband’s face when he is happy with his life. Some women truly are “traditional” and this gives them a sense of satisfaction… whether or not Blake is being a phony is yet to be seen.

    • Chordy says:

      “Real liberation will come when everyone’s work is valued, and everyone has an opportunity to follow their bliss.”

      Totally agreed! I’m certainly no Susie Homemaker myself, but my husband sure is! I would describe him as my “comfort.” I love my career and work my ass off. He HATES office work, but he loves keeping our home in order. I wouldn’t be able to work as hard as I do if it wasn’t for him. Devaluing homemaking just because it’s “women’s work” is antithetical to feminism! Your home and family life is the most important thing you have. I’m lucky to have found someone who can make up for where I lack, and he’s lucky to have someone to provide for him so he’s not stuck spending his life doing something he hates just to survive!

  3. Aria says:

    I like Blake. I don’t understand why people hate har. But this stories are just boring.

    Neither Blake or Scarjo, who I adore, need this kind of press.

  4. lem says:

    I’m leaning towards buying her happy homemaker routine as just who she actually is. She’s never been labeled a party girl or the typical hollywood starlet trainwreck. Some women do like to settle down “young” and I think maybe this is just who she is.

  5. KellyinSeattle says:

    I think it’s kind of refreshing to see a famous couple do some normal things;like cook, for example, and they seem pretty well grounded to me. Wish them happiness, puppies, and rainbows. (and 30 kids)

  6. Steph says:

    I knew someone that went to highschool with her and said she was super duper nice, always saying hello and was geniune even after she got famous. Said she WAS very popular but was friends with people from all the different “cliques”. I believe she was in show-choir and was also a cheerleader. That’s some serious geek/cool girl contrast there. Ever since I heard that years ago, I’ve always thought she sounded down to earth and I liked her.

    • carrie says:

      during her Dicaprio period,she lived in the south of France to study the french and i have some family in this aera and they said she’s charming and loved to cook.Every day she went to the market of St Paul De Provence(it’s how they knew her)

    • LizEJ says:

      I remember some interviews from her “Travelling Pants” days when she was in school and she seemed to be pretty well-rounded – cheerleader, student council etc. I think she did pretty well in school too (I don’t know how I know this maybe it was mentioned by the interviewer or her mom) and I think she’s a lot more “normal” than people make her out to be.

    • Jayna says:

      Yeah, I have never gotten the hate for her.

      • Smashley says:

        I don’t get the hate either! I remember seeing her interview when …”Traveling Pants” came out, and she said she was still attending school and she was on the soccer team. Also, I read an article in Cosmo a few years back, when she was dating Penn, and she said she was a homebody and liked to play Guitar Hero. I don’t watch GG anymore but I always liked her on it. And her performance in “The Town” was good.

  7. Gal says:

    I’m not a fan of Blake’s, actually I’m pretty meh about both of them but for what it’s worth:

    I think the baking part is real. Bakerella did a post a while back from when she was promoting her cook book about being asked to do some baking with a celeb while in NY promoting the book. It turned out to be Blake and it was apparently a really fun time with Blake and several of her friends, just baking cake pops and stuff. It didn’t read as any sort of publicity stunt, but was quite sincere…just my five cents

    • Michelle says:

      I remember the Bakerella post and Bakerella commenting that she was amazed by the supplies Blake had on hand (I sort of got the impression that she sort of expected Blake to be kind of feigning the domestic goddess thing and was really surprised that she wasn’t). I love to bake and cook, so it doesn’t surprise me that Blake does, I’ve always found it relaxing.

  8. Happymom says:

    Since we’ve never seen her stumbling out of clubs or clipping people with her car, I can actually buy that she’s a homebody. And he definitely seems like he’s a one woman guy and wants to settle down. I’m sure she’ll be pregnant within a year, and they’ll have a bunch of kids within the next 5 years.

  9. yolo says:

    ..just hafta say… I absolutely HATE the “ScarJo” abbreviation. HATE it. How much harder is it to actually type Scarlett Johansson?? lol.. ANYWAYYYyyyyy… I am not a nonfan or fan of Blakie-Cakes and I never really got some of the things people say about her, i.e.; famewhore, being fake, etc.. ?? I mean, OK, she can’t really act, but neither can half of Hollywood, sooo.. ??

  10. V4Real says:

    Ryan is most likely at the stage in his life where he is ready to settle down. Maybe finally he has found the right person but it’s like he goes on a few good dates with a girl and he’s ready to propose. This is not his first rodeo so that’s probably why most of us are a little skeptic about the relationship.

    Alanis was just practice, Scarlett was the dress rehearsal and Blake is the ceremony. I actually like Ryan and find hin quite attractive but that’s not the reason I dislike Blake. I just think she’s an untalented, pretentious famewhore, plain looking Jane and I hope she don’t break his heart.

  11. Talie says:

    This is the image she wants to promote, so I buy it…Alanis and Scarlett were never angling to be seen as homemakers.

  12. Maria says:

    I like her. She grew on me and I believe that’s how she is.

  13. Jayna says:

    Why make fun of her loving to cook for him? She has a career and is busy with that and has a passion for cooking for those she loves. She doesn’t say she’s in the bathroom scrubbing the toilet and cleaning and washing clothes all day long. Sophia Loren loved cooking for her family and felt it was her way of showing her love for them.

    My friend’s husband is a very busy attorney but he loves to prepare gourmet meals and does it many nights a week. It is his way of relaxing and he loves it, and she loves that he wants to do it.

    I never see her saying she wants to give up her career. Many actresses just have a different kind of career if they want babies, kind of like Kyra Sedgwick. Few can pull off a Meryl Streep having four and huge career and that was probably because she had a husband who worked at home as a sculpturer.

    Personally, I have never bought the “famewhore” thing about Blake and I don’t fully understand all the hate she gets from people. Honestly, based on her interviews and lack of embarrassing “Lohan-like” press, I buy the home-maker persona she exhibits. Obviously, none of us no them personally so we can never know what goes on behind closed doors, but it never makes sense to me when people throw shade at famous people based solely on tabloid lies. Wish them the best, I bet they will make some very cute, and very tall babies :)

  18. The Original Mia says:

    Why is it that Scarlett changed? Why isn’t the divorce Ryan’s fault for not accepting who his wife was? Sorry, but that rubs me the wrong way. Why is Scarlett the bad guy because she had a successful career? Why isn’t it Ryan’s fault for being a twat about his wife being more successful than him?

    I hope he & Suzy Homemaker are deliriously happy for many years to come. My hope is she stays as dedicated to being a housewife as he wants to spare us her “acting talent”. Become the next GOOP & call it a day.

  19. yellowshaba says:

    My hate on blake is I believe she gets super attention for her killer body and blonde hair, and that frustrates me because her acting talent is seriously lacking. I know looks play a huge part in hollyweird but as a huge movie buff I crave quality of acting and to see someone get parts just because of their looks is infuriating…and yes I know this is a regular occurance I’m not just singling blake out, just explaining my personal distain for her.

  20. skuddles says:

    Ugh, I feel like we’re supposed to be buying into the notion that this is the next big celeb power couple… Nope. Not gonna happen. They’re only mildly interesting at best.

  21. A Fan says:

    I’d like someone to cook and bake for me, too. Nothing wrong with that.
