Lively’s surprises

Blake Lively shares the biggest surprise she’s ever given someone.

The 26-year-old actress is married to Green Lantern star Ryan Reynolds and admits one of her proudest moments was making a special gift for the actor.

Asked by Vogue magazine the best surprise she’s ever planned for someone, Blake took no time to respond: “A collection of short stories written by loved ones for my husband.”

The actress was under fire to answer dozens of queries for the fashion magazine’s digital series, dubbed 73 Questions.

During her interview, Blake also revealed an unusual surprise of her own.

“My mom brought home a child from a yard sale once. True story,” she said.

Asked about a surprise that made her cry, she paused for a moment before adding, “Stubbing my toe.”

Blake admitted she loves the unexpected, which also may be the reason she’s always so prepared.

The star insisted that she always carries three things in her purse: “My cell phone, my credit card and my passport just in case,” she said.

Savages star Blake wed Ryan in September 2012, two years after they met on the set of Green Lantern. The pair weren’t involved romantically at first as Ryan was still married to Scarlett Johansson and Blake was dating her Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley.

Now she can't help but gush about her other half.

“He’s a part of it because everything we do in life we do together. If I’m working on a movie, he helps me with my character; I do the same with him. Picking out a coffee table. What we’re going to eat,” she recently told Vogue for the magazine's August issue..

“He’s going to be a great father and leader and patriarch - he’s so meant to be all of those things. The fact that he lived so much before we got together, he’s the exact realised person that he should be. And so I get to share my life with the person he’s become, and we get to grow from there,” she enthused.
