Blake's Birthday Photo With Ryan
Blake Lively's birthday message for Ryan Reynolds was not her typical sarcastic, humorous jab, it was political, and it was adorable. On Tuesday, the couple spent Ryan's 42nd birthday with absentee ballots in hand and a whole bunch of balloons in tow. Unlike last year, when Blake posted a photo of Ryan Gosling and her husband barely in the frame, his face was front and center in this year's post, and it came with more than a birthday message. "Happy Birthday to 2018's Sexiest Voter Alive @vancityreynolds #justvoted 📬🎉 #absenteeballot party!" she captioned the photo.
With midterm elections right around the corner and absentee ballots already being sent in, celebrities are using their powerful voices to encourage early voting. Not only did Amy Schumer announce her pregnancy at the bottom of a note on how to flip the House, but Blake and Ryan are encouraging their fans to vote with his "birthday voting limelight." Blake and Ryan's close friend Taylor Swift also broke her political silence earlier this month, which impressively caused a huge spike in voter registration!
Ryan also shared a post-voting selfie, writing, "What a birthday! I just smoked a huge bowl of early voting." Never one to shy away from birthday humour, just one day prior, Ryan posted a throwback photo of himself with a birthday cake and a sassy joke. "Happy birthday to me. Or as Dad used to affectionately say, 'the condom broke.'" Read on to see their political birthday photos and then check out everything you need to know about the 2018 elections here.
