This star never misses an opportunity to make a joke on social media.
“Happy Birthday to my amazing wife,” the Deadpool actor, 40, wrote alongside a photo of himself with more than half of Lively’s face cropped out.
While the actor is known for his comical tweets and Instagram posts, Lively revealed in July that his social media stories (usually about their two daughters, 2-year-old James, and 11-month-old Inez) are entirely fabricated.
“He may as well work for the Enquirer,” the All I See Is You actress told Glamour. “When he says ‘my daughter,’ he’s never, ever talking about her. Everything is a completely made-up scenario.”
She continued, “He’ll run them by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I’m so in love with him when he writes that stuff. I mean, I’m in love with him most of the time, but especially with that.”
Yes, Lively said she loves her husband “most of the time,” but that’s only to avoid scrutiny.
“I said, ‘Most of the time,’ because if I say, ‘I’m so in love with him all the time,’ then you get that eye-rolling, ‘Oh, her life is so great, she’s so perfect,'” she said. “So it’s, like, my defense mechanism.”
