Ryan Reynolds voted for the first time since he became a U.S. citizen in 2018.
The Canadian-born actor commemorated the momentous occasion on Instagram with a photo of him and his proud wife, Blake Lively.
He described the experience of dropping off his absentee ballot, writing:
“This is my first time voting in America. I’d like to thank my wife Blake for making my first time so gentle and loving.”
“It was super scary at first, then exciting and now I’m a little tired. But proud.”
The pair–who are notorious for their often witty and inspirational social media activity–married in September 2012 and have three children together: Betty – 1, Inez – 4 and James – 5.
Lively also preserved their participation in the 2020 presidential election with a similar photo on her Instagram page.
“It was Ryan’s first time. He was understandably scared.”
“It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast.”
“He wept. I pretended to weep.”
“Then he called all his friend.”
Did you notice anything peculiar between the two photos?
Although the couple posted identical pictures of them standing next to each other on their respective posts, fans couldn’t help but notice Lively’s magically appearing shoes on her feet that were missing on her hubby’s post.
Indeed, the former Gossip Girl actress demonstrated her artistic skills by digitally drawing shoes on her tip-toed bare feet.
And her followers were here for it.
After fans lovingly called her out in the comments, Lively owned her look on Instagram stories by feigning ignorance.
She tagged shoe designer Christian Louboutin and asked:
“Are you hiring? Barefoot iPhone doodler with vast experience avail.”
“Impressive résumé upon request.”
She finally came clean and expressed how excited she was to rush out and vote early.
“Can you tell I was so happy to get outta a onesie and vote.”
“Sure it was an absentee drop off ballot with a mask covering my look. But dammit I exercised my right to vote.”
“And to not wear shoes that ruined my outfit.”
Congrats on your first vote, Ryan!
Neither Reynolds nor Lively confirmed if his shoes were real or doodled on his feet.
