The married couple enjoyed dinner at o ya (a Japanese restaurant in New York) and it turns out, it's the same restaurant where Blake and Ryan first fell for each other years ago. Talk about sentimental value!

Blake spilled all while wishing her husband a happy birthday on Instagram. She shared a photo of herself and Deadpool actor Ryan cuddling up to one another inside the venue, and added the caption: "@_o_ya_ We fell in love at your restaurant in Boston. We stay in love at your restaurant in NY. Thank you for the BEST food and memories! You are our FAVOURITE!! Another happy birthday with @vancityreynolds."

She then added a heart-eyed emoji and one of a love heart and told Ryan: "Hey, Reynolds, I like you a whole lot. Just sayin'..."

Our hearts.

Ryan, meanwhile, shared a photo of himself and Blake sat at dinner and captioned his post: "A special shout out to our children for not ruining everything like they planned."

Ryan and Blake are parents to two children, daughter James, one, and their recent new arrival.

News surfaced at the start of October that Blake had given birth to her second child with Ryan, at a hospital in NYC. No other details were included in reports, including the baby's sex and name, and both Blake and Ryan are yet to confirm their little one's arrival - the couple are known for being notoriously private when it comes to their family life.

They welcomed daughter James on 16 December 2014.

Blake and Ryan are thought to have met on set of their joint movie Green Latern and Ryan later revealed that he and Blake ventured on their first date a year later.

Although, it wasn't your usual first date. Why? Turns out they were actually on a double date and were dating other people.

Ryan recalled: "About a year after Green Lantern we were both single and we went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl and it was just the most awkward date for the respective parties, because we were like fireworks across [the table]."

He and Blake married in 2012.
