Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds: Their Revved-Up, Down-home Romance

From ice cream dates to family dinners, look back on the 11-month romance that led to their South Carolina nuptials


Celebrating his 35th birthday on location in Boston in October 2011, Ryan Reynolds is joined by a very special reveler: former Green Lantern costar Blake Lively, 24. It is the second time Reynolds, who split from wife Scarlett Johansson in December 2010, and Lively, who is fresh from a breakup with Leonardo DiCaprio, are spotted together that month. "They are very much a couple," a source confirms to PEOPLE. "They're really happy together."
