They are arguably Hollywood’s cutest couple (Joe and Sofía come pretty close), and now Ryan Reynolds has spilled some incredibly sweet details of how his relationship with Blake Lively, 28, blossomed!

The couple, who began dating in 2011, have been notoriously private about their romance over the last few years, but Ryan, 39, recently opened up about their first date.

‘We were buddies then. I remember it was funny because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and all that stuff, we were both single,’ the actor said.

‘We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl. That was the most awkward date [from their perspective] probably because we were just like fireworks coming across,’ he continued.

Ryan also went on to say that he thinks ‘the best way to have a relationship is to start as friends,’ and after seeing these two on the social circuit for Ryan’s new movie Deadpool, we couldn’t agree more!

Stop it you guys, you’re just too cute!
