Ryan Reynolds jokingly casts shade on Blake Lively on her birthday after duet with Mariah Carey E! News UK

Ryan Reynolds reposted Mariah Carey’s video from their virtual duo together and hilariously called it “the favorite thing that ever happened on August 25” despite being his wife Blake Lively’s birthday.

Ryan Reynolds, 44, has fun trolling his wife jokingly Blake Lively on his 34th birthday and he uses Mariah Carey to do it! The actor reposted a hilarious video on TikTok that the singer created in which they perform a duet from her hit song “Fantasy” as they are virtually side by side on Twitter, and called it “favorite thing.” Which never happened on August 25, even though the date marks the actress’ special day. “My favorite thing that happened on August 25,” read her tweet.

Although Mariah’s video with Ryan was first posted to TikTok on August 24, she shared it on Twitter on Blake’s birthday to share it with her 21.6 million followers. The portion of Ryan’s video was taken from a previous solo video he made of himself in lip sync with the 1995 song while encouraging his followers to check out his new movie, free guy. It turns out that a version of the song is in the movie and he even shared a snippet of one of the scenes it is featured in on Twitter last week.

Since Ryan has admitted to being a fan of Mariah in interviews in the past, it’s no surprise that he includes one of her songs in his new movie, but his playful undertone in Blake was definitely a funny surprise. She has yet to reply to her Twitter comment but she’s been off the social media platform since May 2020, so it will be interesting to see if she does!

Ryan’s latest joke with Blake isn’t the first time we’ve seen the couple joke on social media. The lovebirds, who tied the knot in 2012, have been known to make fun of each other and troll each other whenever they get the chance. In July, Blake jokingly accused Ryan of being thirsty on Instagram after posting pictures of himself picking up a turtle and showing off his “slender ass arms.”

She responded to the photos with a sarcastic comment that read, “Are we supposed to believe this isn’t an article about your beautiful arms?” And shared a photo of the response to her followers on social media. She followed up with photos of her original turtle photo while zooming in on her arms each time.
