Yesterday was Ryan Reynolds' birthday. There's absolutely no reason why you should know that unless you happened to see his rather wonderful tweet.

But not to be outdone, his wife, Blake Lively, has since tweeted this:

Superb. It's only fair, after he posted this snap in honour of his wife's birthday earlier this year:

And tweeted this the year before:

The Deadpool star is definitely one of the best celebrity accounts. He is not ashamed to take the piss out of himself, or his wife, for a bit of a laugh.

But Blake has recently upped her social media game, too.

Last week, she posted this photo, with her wearing a basketball-inspired dress and the caption: "The balls to my basket." Blake even went as far as to tag his crotch in the photo, and if that's not love I don't know what love is.

These two are brilliant, aren't they? In a world of over-sharing, cringe celebrity couples, these two and their social media piss-taking stand out a mile for a good reason.

Ryan, who has two daughters with Blake, once told David Letterman: "I used to say to Blake, 'I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you'. I would say that to my wife.

"And the second I looked in that baby's eyes, I knew in that exact moment that if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby." Perfect.
