Ryan Reynoldsvoted for the first time. Well, maybe that’s not so accurate.
Reynolds is famously Canadian, and since he only became a dual citizen in 2018, he just cast his ballot for the first time in the United States. It was one of the last things he did before turning 44, an occasion Canada’s official Twitter account marked by wishing him a happy birthday on behalf of all Canadians. (Reynolds is a Scorpio.)
Still buzzing and spry from the newness of the U.S. voting experience, the actor took a wholesome photo with his wife, Blake Lively, to immortalize the moment, then posted it to Instagram with a winking caption.
“This is my first time voting in America. I’d like to thank my wife Blake for making my first time so gentle and loving,” he wrote. “It was super scary at first, then exciting and now I’m a little tired. But proud. #VoteEarly.”
And of course, true to form, Lively posted a photo to her own account, too, complimenting her husband’s caption with some classic Lively-Reynolds banter. “It was Ryan’s first time,” she wrote. “He was understandably scared. It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast. He wept. I pretended to weep. Then he called all his friend[s}. #voteearly”
