Ryan Reynolds FaceTimed wife Blake Lively last night as Wrexham fans celebrated their club's promotion.
As you may have heard, Wrexham got promoted to the EPL last night, following a 3-1 victory over Boreham Wood - much to the delight of fans, who went absolutely wild.
The Welsh side, who are owned by Hollywood stars Reynolds and Rob McElhenny, pipped rivals Notts County to the National League title and incredible scenes broke out.
And Reynolds made sure that his wife Lively and their kids didn’t miss out on the fun and excitement by FaceTiming them to show exactly how happy the fans were.
In footage, Reynolds can be seen grinning into his fan which he then holds up to show his family what's happening on the pitch.
His wife and kids look pretty chuffed for Wrexham and can be seen sporting similar large grins as the fans rushed to celebrate the big win.
The promotion will be the first time Wrexham will be playing in the football league for 15 years - so it’s a pretty big deal - and celebrations went on into the night.
Speaking after the win, manager Phil Parkinson said: "It's emotional to be honest with you, I feel emotional. What this club's been through over 15 years and with the heartache of the play-offs last year, I'm so proud of this team today and so proud of the fans.
"To go a goal down and respond with the calmness we did I thought was outstanding. It's a massive moment for this football club from the owners all the way down to the supporters of this football club."
In a post on Twitter, earlier today Reynolds wrote: “Everything I own smells like champagne, beer and grass. I’m still somewhere between giggling and sobbing. This town and this sport is one of the most romantic things on earth. Thank you, @Wrexham_AFC.”
The team has gone from strength to strength since being taken over by Reynolds and McElhenny in 2020.
As a result of the team’s success, Reynolds and McElhenny were recently awarded the freedom of the city.
At the event, Reynolds said: "I think back to that first moment. We were on Zoom speaking to the Wrexham Supporters' Trust and I don't think I have ever been as nervy as I was in that exact moment.
"I'm so touched I get to be a part of this story. I know that we are here so that you guys can thank us for some reason, but I feel like it is the other way around.
"We want to thank you for what you have given us. Words are too clumsy to quantify what it means to me."
