Blake Lively gushed that she manifested her "dreamy" husband Ryan Reynolds.

The 36-year-old 'Gossip Girl' legend shared a trailer for her new semi-animated movie 'IF' - which is co-produced by her 47-year-old spouse and 44-year-old director John Krasinski - and she admitted the Marvel star is everything she could have wished for.

She captioned the clip on her Instagram Story: "Everything I believed as a kid did turn out to be true. His name is @vancityreynolds.

"Well, his legal name isn't, At Vancity Reynolds. But he is dreamy and he is in @ifmovie which is also pure magic."

Ryan - who has four young children with Blake - thinks the key to his successful marriage is the fact he and his other half "like" one another and their relationship is built on a strong friendship.

He told 'Entertainment Tonight' in 2021: "We don’t take each other too seriously, but we're also friends.

"Falling in love is great, but do you like each other? That's kinda the question you gotta ask yourself, you know, going into it.

"We've always liked each other. We grow together. We learn from each other. So yeah, I'm lucky to have a buddy in that."

They met when they were working together on 2011's 'Green Lantern', and it was Ryan who made the first move.

The 'Deadpool' star quipped on the 'SmartLess' podcast: "I met Blake on the darkest crease on the anus of the universe called 'Green Lantern'.

"We were friends and buddies and about a year and half later, we went on a double date but we were dating separate people.

"We hung out and we always kind of kept in touch sort of casually and next thing you know, she was going to Boston. I was going to Boston and I said I'll ride with you.

"We got on the train and we rode together. I was just begging her to sleep with me."

He described their romance as something "out of a fairytale".

Ryan added: "A week later I was like, 'We should buy a house together'. And we did."
