But for funnyman Ryan Reynolds, there was only one way he was going to wish his wife, Blake Lively, a happy 30th birthday.

Over the weekend, the 40-year-old actor playfully trolled his wife by posting a picture of him standing alongside the mother of his children at the 2014 Met Gala.

The Deadpool actor's fans took to the post to compliment the actor on his wit.

'Hahaha true love!' one fan wrote. Added commented: 'Wife? Where is she? I can't see any wife.'

Lively celebrated turning the big 3-0 over the weekend with a group of close friends including the likes of jewellery designer Lorraine Schwartz and actress Anna Kendrick, with whom Lively will star opposite in up-coming thriller A Simple Favor.
