If you’re just finding out that Ryan and Blake are Hollywood’s latest newlywed couple from this post then we need to cancel your subscription to Yesterday’s News. I wouldn’t normally do a post on it since their secret wedding was big news last week, but then this photo was dropped yesterday. Bam!:

I’m sorry, but Blake Lively landing Ryan Reynolds and that ring just does not seem fair! Am I right, ladies?! I’m in LOVE though. I adore the single, large center stone with the simple band. While it looks delicate and vintage (my favorite!), Ryan actually designed the ring himself with help from celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. The engagement band is a mix of rose gold and tiny diamonds. It matches her wedding band beautifully. I haven’t fully jumped on the rose gold bandwagon even though it seems to be the “it” thing right now, but this ring is perfection.
It coincides with their fairy tale wedding ceremony at the Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina aka Allie’s house from The Notebook. I would’ve gone with the house Noah re-built if it were my wedding, but that’s just me…
Anyway, while I am obsessed with this couple, I must admit that I was a little shocked when the news of their hush-hush wedding broke. They haven’t even been dating a full year yet! Plus, Ryan just got divorced from the evil ScarJo in the summer of 2010. But, if you can break up with Leonardo DiCaprio, hook Ryan Reynolds and plan a wedding all in less than a year then more power to you! Blake needs to share those skills with the rest of us single ladies…
I actually know multiple couples that dated less than a year before getting engaged and they are rocking married life! Two couples I know dated for less than five months and have been married over a decade each. Love stories like that melt my heart! When you know, you know I guess. Just goes to show you that commitment, hard work and love/friendship can go a long way. I think Ryan and Blake can handle that. Plus, as I always say – those who work out together, stay together, – and this couple is in no shortage of hot bods!

I’ll just leave you with this to ponder until tomorrow – which do you think is harder: Ryan’s abs or Blake’s rock?
|You’re welcome, ladies.|
Stay fit and fabulous,
