Oh, man. I'm not usually the kind of person who gets worked up about celebrity couples, especially since I can be a bit of a cynic (of course they look happy for the cameras, they have to — they're on the red carpet!). However, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are legitimately #couplegoals, not only because of the way they look at each other (I mean, c'mon!), but because of the way they speak about each other. Ryan Reynolds' best quotes about Blake Lively prove that they've got a happily-ever-after relationship that the rest of us mortals can only aspire to.

Reynolds and Lively first met while working on Green Lantern, which would have made the perfect superhero backdrop for their love story. However, at that point in time, they were both dating other people. Classic rom-com beginning, right? "It was weird at first but we were buddies for a long time," Reynolds told Entertainment Weekly. "I think it's the best way to have a relationship is to start as friends."

It took the pair a couple of years after first meeting one another to actually begin dating, but once they did, it was complete fireworks — as you can tell by Reynolds' words about his wife (and, occasionally, their daughter James, because I couldn't resist) below.
