Although the 29-year-old actress was a day late in sending her birthday messages, Lively made up for the tardiness with sweetness.
“People Who I Not Only Really Love, But Also Really LIKE, That Were Born Yesterday: Part 1 of 2,” Lively captioned a selfie of herself smiling with the newly 27-year-old singer peering at the camera from under her blonde bangs. “You know how I feel.”
Swift wasn’t the only person in Lively’s life celebrating — her brother-in-law Bart Johnson, who happened to play Troy Bolton’s father in the High School Musical movies, also marks his big day on Dec. 13. (Johnson is married to Lively’s older sister, actress Robyn Lively.)
Lively honored Johnson in a separate Instagram post, sharing a silly photo of the sisters with their arms wrapped around each other and Johnson photobombing from behind them.
“People That I Not Only Really Love, But Also Really LIKE, Who Were Born Yesterday: Part 2 of 2,” Lively wrote. “No one loves you more than @robynlively and I do. Clearly…”
Swift and Lively cemented their BFF status by posting a series of Instagram posts from a fun day at the Queensland theme park in Australia last year. Things didn’t slow down this summer when they celebrated the Fourth of July at Swift’s Rhode Island home with their significant others — Lively’s husband Ryan Reynolds and Swift’s now-ex Tom Hiddleston.
