Blake Lively reveals why she really married Ryan Reynolds and it’s the sweetest ever
Blake Lively graces Marie Claire’s July cover and inside, the former Gossip Girl tells the mag exactly why she agreed to marry Ryan Reynolds (other than the fact that he’s a total hunk) and her reason is the sweetest thing ever. 

“I knew he would always be my best friend for my whole life,” she gushes about the Canadian hottie. “That was the biggest thing to me. I’d never known anything like the friendship that I had with him. I could like him as much as I loved him.”

Lively and Reynolds are parents to two-year-old daughter James and are now expecting their second bundle of joy! Which doesn’t come without its challenges, given the couple’s fame.

“My family: That’s the thing that I feel most protective of and the thing that I feel is the most exposed when I feel exploited,” she tells the magazine.

“Ryan had a nice, normal upbringing, and we want our kids to have the same normal life that we had. We don’t ever want to rob them of what we had, because we’d feel really selfish.”

Easier said than done, Blake, but if anyone can do it, it’s you. UGH, these two are giving us ALL the relationship goals and we can’t stand it.
