Ryan Reynolds Reveals How He Knew Blake Lively Was 'The One'

Ryan Reynolds is on the cover of GQ‘s Men of the Year issue for December 2016 and he opens up about how he knew wife Blake Lively was “the one.”

Here is what the 40-year-old Deadpool actor had to share with the mag:

On when he knew Blake was the one: “Probably after the sex,” he said jokingly. “No, we were hanging out at this little restaurant in Tribeca that’s open really late, and this song came on and I was just like, ‘Want to dance?’ No one was in there, so it was just totally empty. And it was just one of those moments where halfway through the dance, it was like, ‘Oh, I think I just crossed a line.’ And then I walked her home. And, uh, you know, I don’t really need to go into what happened after that.”

On his childhood: “I had a rough ten-year patch with my father. So we were estranged. From my earliest memory of him, my father was that stereotypical tough guy. But it was just a veneer. The hardest part for me is that he was always kind of a mystery. I just don’t feel like I ever had a real conversation with him… But I actually that sort of epic moment that only happens in films, where I saw him before he died and closed the loop as much as I could.”

On his family: “I’m on the precipice of having a real American family. I mean, I always imagined that would happen, and then it happened. Every idiotic Hallmark-card cliché is true.”

Also featured on the covers are Warren Beatty and Olympic runner Usain Bolt. The issue hits newsstands nationwide on November 22.
