Ryan Reynolds is one of Hollywood's best-loved actors.

He's probably best known for his role as Marvel superhero, Deadpool - in fact, he even directed the second Deadpool movie.

He's also well-known for something else.

Reynolds has one of the most beloved social media presences in the celebosphere. His Twitter is absolutely loaded with golden moments, often making fun of being a husband and a father.

Ryan and his wife, Blake Lively, are undeniably couple goals.

Aside from being 2 of the most attractive people on the planet, they also seem to have an excellent sense of humor when it comes to their relationship.

Which is often depicted on social media.

Reynolds often takes to Twitter and Instagram to poke fun at married life and fatherhood.

But there's one time of year in which Reynolds really shines.

Around the time of his wife's birthday, he often comes up with ingenious ways to share a sarcastic tribute to Lively - like this iconic poorly-cropped photo.

Though Lively gives as good as she gets.

On Reynolds' birthday, in response, she posted a tribute to the other famous Ryan - Ryan Gosling - cropping out her husband in the process.

Here's another classic birthday troll.

Nothing says "I love my wife," like being more focused on the celebrations of an aging country star than her own special day.

So, quite understandably...
