This celebrity couple is usually extremely private -- when it comes to celebrating a big birthday, it seems like they're sharing it with the world. Actress Blake Lively wished her husband, Ryan Reynolds, a happy 40th birthday in a sweet photo she shared on Instagram, which is rare for the mom of two, who typically keeps her family life pretty buttoned up.


In addition to wishing the Deadpool star a happy birthday, Blake made the post that much more special by sharing a little of the couple's history, which explains how and why they chose the contemporary Japanese restaurant O Ya for the celebration.

Aw! So sweet, right? Most couples have a favorite spot that reminds them of some of the more romantic highlights in their relationship. And what great free publicity for that restaurant, right?

It's been an exciting autumn for the stars, who welcomed their second child in late September. Even with a newborn at home, the couple seems to be having a blast in the photo Reynolds shared from the night.

Don't you love this part of his caption? "And a special shout out to our children for not ruining everything like they planned." 

So many parents have experienced this: You're looking forward to a night out for a special occasion and next thing your baby has a fever and your toddler has a stomach bug. We hear you, Ryan. Glad to hear your little ones cooperated!

It sure looks like fun. Even the restaurant wished the famous dad well. 

Happy Birthday to @vancityreynolds !! Lots of love and sushi
