Ryan Reynolds has become one of Canada’s most recognizable stars over the course of his career, and he’s never forgotten the Great White North. And on Nov. 11, he and Blake Lively went on what might be one of the most Canadian date nights of all time!
The Deadpool star and former Gossip Girl actress were in New York City, where they took in a show by the Steven Page Trio. You might know its frontman better as former Barenaked Ladies singer Steven Page. The group is also comprised of Art of Time cellist Kevin Fox and Craig Northey, who ‘90s Can-rock geeks will remember as the lead singer of the Odds.
After the show, Ryan and Blake posed for a photo with the Canadian music legends, which ended up in Ryan’s Instagram stories.
“Beautiful night with the Steven Page Trio,” he wrote. He also shared a lovely photo of him and Steven with their arms around each other.
Steven also returned the favour in his own story, reposting both photos with his own comments.
“Just hanging with some awesome people backstage,” he said, resharing Ryan’s photo. “So glad you could come to the show.”
Before heading to the show, Ryan posted some photos of his brother, who is a Mountie! He shared pictures of Terry Reynolds at Remembrance Day services with his family before posting images from his date night with Blake.
Ryan has previously said he wanted to be a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer when he was growing up. In addition to Terry, two of his brothers are police officers out in B.C.
We’re glad Ryan and Blake enjoyed their night out – they likely have been looking forward to it after having been very busy over the last few months! The couple welcomed their third child earlier this year and the newborn joins siblings James, 4, and Inez, 2. We know from Prince William that parenting three kids can be tiring sometimes, so it’s important for couples to reconnect with each other and have fun! It’s great to see Ryan and Blake doing that.
