Move over cookie cake! There’s a new sweet treat set to be the main attraction for birthday festivities and we can thank Ryan Reynolds for bringing it to our attention. Celebrating his 44th birthday on Friday, October 23, the actor and entrepreneur’s wife, Blake Lively, let her followers in on a little secret about the “Deadpool” star: he prefers to have baked pies over birthday cake.
Taking to her Instagram account to share her birthday wishes to her husband, the A Simple Favor actress called him out on his blasphemous desire to have pie over the traditional choice of cake. “1) Who is the lost soul that selects birthday PIE. 2) What ANIMAL eats their cake (pie) without first blowing out the candles,” she questioned under a photo of her mitted hands holding a hot pie with nine candles in front of her husband. “@vancityreynolds that’s who. Happy Birthday. I honestly can’t believe we’re still married.”
Following the initial cheerful photo of Reynolds with the pie, Lively added another photo to show off her work up close. In the background, there were three additional flavor pies because, you know, a guy’s gotta have options on his big day. Keeping the celebration going on her Instagram Stories, the loving wife and mom of four uploaded a photo of the now-44-year-old getting ready to take a bite out of a piece of pie that still has a lit candle on it. “I go all out to make it special for my husband on his birthday,” she captioned it. And honestly, it made me think...why aren’t people going all out for me like this?!
Ultimately though, if cookie cake has become a thing to celebrate birthdays, then why can’t pies be the new star treat, too? Put me down for two when my birthday rolls around next year!
