Blake Lively absolutely roasts husband Ryan Reynolds over Wrexham game
| Last updated
It was a huge weekend for Ryan Reynolds, with his club Wrexham competing in the FA Cup.
Since the Hollywood star and Rob McElhenney bought the Welsh side back in February 2021, they've had quite the journey.
The Red Dragons have had a Disney documentary series made about them and now look to return to the Football League, 15 years after they were relegated.
And yesterday (29 January), saw them take on Championship side Sheffield United in the fourth round of the FA Cup, with Reynolds watching on from the stands.
It was much tighter than most pundits would have predicted. Despite going behind early on, Wrexham fought back, and even went ahead twice in the game, though the match ended 3-3.
The two sides will now play each other again to decide who goes through to the fifth round.
Understandably, it was a bitter pill for Reynolds and the Wrexham supporters to take.
So you'd imagine that the 46-year-old's wife, Blake Lively, would be quick to offer him a shoulder to cry on, right? Hmm not quite.
Instead of sharing some words of support following the match, she took the opportunity to mercilessly troll her husband.
In a post to Instagram, Lively shared a boomerang of Reynolds, who cuts a despondent figure as he watches on in the stands.
Lively captioned the post: "I bought ESPN+ today just to watch my husband experience crippling anxiety live.
Who needs enemies when you've got a spouse, eh?
The Gossip Girl star wasn't done there, though.
This was a huge moment for Wrexham and Reynolds, so she was never just gonna dig him out completely.
Below the photo, she praised the team for their performance.
"If you're not watching this insane @wrexham_afc game right now, you're missing out on these vibes," she added.
"They're playing a team three leagues higher and currently winning. Life makes no sense."
Prior to kick-off, it's safe to say that Reynolds was much more relaxed as he chatted with Gary Lineker and pundits Alan Shearer and Mark Hughes for Match of The Day.
And despite the butterflies going around his stomach, he had the studio in stitches with a cheeky comment about Sheffield United's chances of winning the match.
"I get nervous for a match like today," he said.
"Sheffield United are three leagues above us, 70 teams above us. It’s a classic David vs Goliath.
"You guys know this more than anybody on earth, this is football. This is the beautiful game. And I’m going to go on record and say there’s a chance…albeit a slim chance that Sheffield United pulls off a miracle today!”
