Ryan Reynolds turned 41 on Monday and fans, friends and family alike hopped onto to social media to wish the actor a happy birthday. But it was his wife of five year’s epic tweet that took the cake.
Blake Lively tweeted “Happy birthday, baby” alongside a picture of Reynolds and his co-Ryan, Gosling, nearly cropping her husband out.

It was the perfect response to Reynolds’ own birthday wish to his wife back in August where he cropped her out of a picture of them both.
Happy Birthday to my amazing wife. pic.twitter.com/7vulMXqOdp

For this person, the joke in Lively’s tweet didn’t register right away.
It took me a second to realize Ryan gosling isn't her husband

“It took me a second to realize Ryan gosling isn’t her husband,” one wrote.
Still, everyone else certainly thought her message was the perfect burn and gave the actress kudos for the shady jab.
SAVAGE. 💀 https://t.co/EGbFWbK7w4

Considering Reynolds is already known for his comic tweets, we can’t wait to see how this super couple wishes each other happy birthday next year.
