Blake Lively’s Emotional Speech to Ryan Reynolds Comes to Light, Moving Him to Tears

11 months ago

When we say Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, we say couple goals. While we often get to enjoy their playful stabs at one another, we came across a gem where things got raw and emotional. Blake Lively shared insights from her life with Ryan that we never get to hear. And watching her speech made us feel like someone was slicing onions right next to us — keep scrolling to watch the best part of the video below.

In 2022, Ryan Reynolds was honored with the 36th American Cinematheque Award.

The event is an annual fundraiser to support an organization that runs local theaters in California. Big names were previously awarded the honor, such as Matthew McConaughey, Bradley Cooper, Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, etc.

The host of the event humorously introduced Blake Lively on stage, sharing that “She stared with Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern, and they recently collaborated on their 4th child.”

Blake Lively showered Ryan Reynolds with love and did so in front of millions of people.

Blake Lively opened her speech by thanking Canada for giving the people the man we know as Ryan Reynolds, a man who has spread joy and laughter around the world “with his art, his heart, his philanthropy, his humor, his integrity, his unmatched work ethic, his self-deprecating levity, and his grace.”

The Gossip Girl actress said that Ryan always had something in him that took him back home, to Canada. Now, she continued, “I am his home and our girls are his home. And just like that 19-year-old boy, he races home, whether it’s from across the globe or a meeting across the street, he is hardwired to get home. If he didn’t come home from a set, not in his wardrobe, we would be very concerned. Soaked in mud, fake blood, real blood, prosthetic scars, superhero suits, tap shoes, or clown makeup, Daddy always comes home.”

Blake shared that Ryan always races back home and “He’s able to somehow be everything to everyone, all at once. He is the most present person you’ll ever meet. And yes, he creates magic in his work, but man, oh man, does he create magic in his real life. And my daughters, they know what I’m talking about.” At that moment, she called out to her daughter, JJ, who was sitting beside her father, witnessing a moment that will stay in her memory forever.

The mother of 4 continued, “So really, all this is to say, if anything defines this man, it’s the way that he lives his life to honor and value his home, whether that be me and our babies, or all of his people in this room and beyond.”

The heartfelt speech has touched the hearts of many fans online.

The tear-jerking speech — which you can watch in its entirety here — sparked tens of thousands of comments from fans, who are used to seeing her and Ryan Reynolds roast each other on social media:

  • “This is one of the most loving tributes I have ever heard. The epitome of true love.”
  • “Not only do I love her for speaking so amazing about him, but him for being a leader for many men, I wish more were like him.”
  • “I want to fall in love like this, where I don’t shy away from expressing it in front of the world. I can’t imagine the standard their kids are going to have with their parents being the ideal couple goal.
  • “The way she speaks about him, you can tell he’s her world and that love is real.🥰”

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have recently welcomed their 4th child into their family and while they are usually private with their lives, the actress shared some snaps of her post-baby body, and her community applauded her for posting unfiltered, natural pictures.

This is a very moving speech. You can feel her passion in her body language and words for Ryan. I wish them the same or more of these feelings for them and their family.
