And, according to Blake at least, the fact that they are friends first and foremost. “That’s what I appreciate about our relationship is that he really is—he’s my friend, first and foremost still, you know? Not just in our history but in everyday life, he is my friend first. And I think that’s the secret to happiness. I don’t know! I don’t know the secret to happiness, but the secret to my happiness.”
She also likes the fact that “he lived so much before we got together, he’s the exact realized person that he should be.” Ryan is 10 years Blake’s senior.
They have to daughters together: James was born in December 2014 and Inez in September 2016.
Ryan says he played “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye while Blake was in labor with James.
He’s said he cried like a “sprinkler head” when his first daughter was born.
They made their first public appearance as a family in December 2016 when Ryan accepted a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
One thing Ryan does that annoys Blake is talk in a movie trailer voice.
The only woman with Blake’s permission to “creep up on” Ryan is Martha Stewart. That’s because she “saved” their wedding from becoming “a disaster.”
Blake loves to bake so much that Ryan dubbed their kitchen “The Blakery.”
The couple are big fans of HGTV’s Fixer Upper.
Oh, and they love playing Guitar Hero together.
They’re both really good at giving gifts: Blake once surprised Ryan with a book of short stories written by loved ones, and he once gifted her a video compilation of important people in her life.
The most romantic thing Ryan says he’s ever done for Blake is fly halfway across the world to see her for one day.
