Blake Lively is hard at work filming a movie, so you know what that means: Ryan Reynolds is back to his usual antics, trolling the press and his wife at the same time with some fake news about their relationship. "My wife's been shooting a film overseas so I've been having a ton of time to pretend like I'm watching the kids," the actor joked, according to E! News, at a San Diego Comic-Con panel to promote Deadpool 2 on Saturday. "She's probably filing [divorce] papers as we speak." As E! reported, the couple have two daughters, 3-year-old James and 1-year-old Inez.
This is far from the first time Reynolds has teased the media about his and Lively's marriage. In March, a tabloid ran a headline that claimed the couple was "struggling to spend 'quality time.'" The actor immediately shut it down with a characteristically snappy tweet: "I wish," he wrote in response. "I could use a little 'me time.'" Then, in April, he had another intentionally obtuse comeback for a Yahoo! headline that read, "Ryan Reynolds ... joins Blake Lively and his mom on red carpet after shutting down split rumors."
"We're never splitting. She'll always be my mom," he tweeted. "No matter how much jazz-cabbage she smokes with her rollerblading friends."
Although Reynolds's Comic-Con joke banks on the fact that Lively is taking some time away for her job, this arrangement is actually pretty unusual for the couple. "My husband and I don't work at the same time, so we all go together as a family," Lively told People last October. "If we're away as a family, it's never more than for a day. We stay together." But since the actress is shooting overseas (E! reported she's recently been filming a thriller, The Rhythm Section, in Spain and Ireland), it would make sense if they're making an exception because of how young their kids are.
