I'm a firm believer that the way to anyone's heart is through their stomach. Just ask my fiancée!

Ryan was asked by Seth Myers to impart any words of fatherly wisdom. Without hesitation, Ryan instructed him to willingly take on any and all nighttime duties.

Clean the diapers, do the feedings, and let your wife sleep. That's Ryan's philosophy.

6. Always meet anger with empathy.

The night of their wedding, Blake and Ryan were treated to a private performance from Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine.

During which, a sparkler accidentally burned a hole in Blake's wedding dress.

8. A little music goes a long way.

Both Ryan and Blake are music lovers, it helps them to relax and unwind. So while Blake was giving birth, Ryan thought he'd play some soothing music to calm her down.

He selected "Let's Get It On," by Marvin Gaye. Needless to say, it did not go over well.

9. There is no such thing as a bad photograph.

That's what Ryan seemed intent on expressing to Blake the day of her birthday. He posted several photos of him and Blake over the years. Needless to say, they aren't her finest moments.

But she is so beautiful it doesn't even matter.

"It was like steak knives came out of her eyes," Reynolds told Seth Meyers on *Late Night*.

"Real bad, but she was a mercenary, you know I think I just caught her in the middle of a contraction."

He admitted that beyond that, she was making jokes the entire time.

10. They lean on one another in the difficult times.

Everyone around the world is dealing with the consequences of the COVID-19 outbreak. One of the things that suffered, especially early on, was personal grooming.

Instead of letting Ryan's appearance fall by the wayside, Blake became his private barber!

During a Zoom appearance on *The Late Show With Stephen Colbert*, Ryan explained that the first time Blake cut his hair it took nearly two hours.

I mean, they have to be — right? How else could Ryan get away with posting a picture like this for his millions of followers to see!?

If I were to try and pull something like this on my fiancée, she'd probably leave me on the spot.
