Blake Lively didn't have good response to Ryan Reynolds telling her he bought Wrexham

Blake Lively didn't have good response to Ryan Reynolds telling her he bought Wrexham

Blake Lively was not best pleased when Ryan Reynolds told her he had bought a football club.

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney shocked the world in 2021 after completing a takeover of Wrexham FC.

The Hollywood stars completed a £2 million takeover of the Welsh football side two years ago in the hope they could take them to the big time.

Reynolds and McElhenney have been regular figures at The Racecourse Ground this season, despite all the business commitments they have in the US.

The Hollywood pair are seen cheering on the side from the directors box while they sometimes head down to the dressing room to see the players post-match.

Reynolds's wife, Blake Lively, also recently attended a game in Wales - even joking that a fan's girlfriend should 'dump him' in a hilarious viral video that has been watched by millions.

But while Lively may seem involved and totally hooked by football like her husband, it is fair to say she wasn't best pleased when the Deadpool actor told her he was buying a football club.

In fact, Lively saw the investment as 'really bad news' and her reaction was 'not good', according to Reynolds.

Reynolds shared the storey when on Jimmy Kimmel Live last year as part of McElhenney's stint as guest host.

He said: "I remember after you reached out with this absolutely insane idea and I remember seeing Blake, saying, ‘I have bad news and I have really bad news. The bad news is I slipped into someone’s DMs again.

"The really bad news is that I might have bought half of a fifth-tier national football league [team] in Wales.'"

Reynolds was then asked how his wife responded, to which he replied: "Not good, Rob. Not great. We’re still working through that one.”

The reaction was certainly not what Reynolds was hoping for.

Despite that reaction, the couple are now actually putting down more roots in a property just five miles from the Wrexham ground.

Recently, Reynolds has reportedly purchased a £1.5 million house in the village of Marford, which is just a few miles away from the ground.

However, if Reynolds is hoping to celebrate a Wrexham win when he gets home, he won't exactly have much choice.

The picturesque village of Marford has only two pubs - the Red Lion and the Trevor Arms - while boasting a population of 2,500 people.

Marford also has just a single Co-Op store, which I'm sure is where all Hollywood A-listers do their weekly food shop.
