Blake Lively celebrates her 26th birthday today, so we see who has been the object of her affections over the years.
Lively dated actor Kally Blatz from 2004-2007, after a lifelong friendship.
She then went on to be with actor Penn Badgley from 2007 to 2010. Rumours started to fly that the pair were dating after reconnecting on the set of Gossip Girl and in May 2008, people magazine revealed pictures of the pair kissing while they were on holiday in Mexico. Following that they were much more open in the press about their relationship. The couple had known each other since they were young also.
She has now been married to actor Ryan Reynolds, since 9th September 2012 at Boone Hall in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
They first met while they were filming Green Lantern in 2010, while Reynolds was still married to actress Scarlett Johansson and Lively was still dating Badgley.
After Reynolds filed for divorce in December 2010, he began dating Lively in October 2011, which happened to be the same month she split from boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio after only seven months of dating him.
They now live in Bedford, New York, after purchasing the property back in 2012 along with Lively’s crossbreed Maltease/Poodle.
There is still relatively little written about their pairing, as Lively likes ot protect her privacy;
‘Yeah, I don't comment on my relationships... My anonymity is something I treasure. Wanting to be an actor and wanting to be famous are different.’ (IMDB)
Happy birthday Blake!
