Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are the epitome of #marriagegoals. The parents of 20-month-old daughter James (with another baby on the way!) are good-natured when asked about their relationship, and joke constantly about how they met and fell in love, making us laugh and say “Awwww” at the same time.

But it sounds like baby #2’s conception was influenced by someone outside their bubble.

“Yeah, ya know, [I] just played a little Lionel Richie, and the mood hit!” the Deadpool star told People on Tuesday.

I mean…we get it. Lionel Richie out of nowhere can do that to a person. See also Marvin Gaye and, for some people, Celine Dion (don’t judge).

When you’re as successful and playful as Blake and Ryan both are (not to mention you look how they look), any music can be turned into baby-making music. And there are just some songs and some musicians that are total classics that put anyone in the mood.

Besides, we’re sure that Lionel would be happy knowing he had something to do with bringing another offspring of these two wonderful people into this world.


Congrats in advance to these two crazy kids on the upcoming addition to their new family, who is sure to be just as gorgeous, hilarious, talented, etc. etc. as his/her parents!
