This week Christopher, the PattiKnows astrologist, and I are blogging on People.com about how the stars and planets lined up for a match made in heaven — Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. Here are a few more reasons why I think they rock.
No flash & crash
Most celebrity couples are so much flash, it’s no surprise to me when their relationships crash and burn. How can you expect a relationship to last when you’re basically in a chronic menage a trois with the media? Blake and Ryan are exactly the opposite of the typical flash and crash Hollywood couple. These two lovebirds didn’t sing a peep about their relationship. In fact, they had never even confirmed their relationship to the press.
I love that their relationship is hush-hush, their wedding was quiet and they’re not out pedaling wedding photos right now. They’re grounded, and that’s a good sign for the longevity of their relationship.
They get it
I was so thrilled when I read on People.com that Blake and Ryan pledged to make each other laugh in their wedding vows. It means that they really get the core values of a relationship. Hollywood relationships are often based on flimsy understandings of relationship dynamics. It takes more than just physical attraction and vowing not to cheat to make it work. Ultimately, a relationship is about making your partner happy. Laughter is such a key part of happiness and these two get it.
And let’s take a moment to honor Blake’s beauty. Even though her hair has absolutely nothing to do with their relationship, I couldn’t not list it here. It’s just too amazing. They are a beautiful couple inside and out!
Congrats to the newlyweds, and I think I speak for anyone who likes beautiful things when I say, I hope these two have many, many babies together. They’re going to be gorgeous.
