The Hollywood stars shared a couple of Instagram posts from his milestone birthday celebration, held at the O Ya Japanese restaurant in New York city - the very same restaurant they fell in love in, but the Boston branch.

Gossip Girl star Blake, 29, shared the sweetest of photos of herself cuddling up to her man, against a background of balloons and streamers.

She wrote: "@_o_ya_ We fell in love at your restaurant in Boston. We stay in love at your restaurant in NY.

"Thank you for the BEST food and memories! You are our FAVORITE!! Another happy birthday with @vancityreynolds . Hey, Reynolds, I like you a whole lot. Just sayin'..."

If that wasn't adorable enough, Ryan also posted a snap, showing himself and his wife wearing silly rabbit masks.

He gushed: "Best. Birthday. Everrrrr. Courtesy of my wife, buddy, and international spy, @blakelively. With huge thanks to my favorite restaurant in NYC, @_o_ya_ -- and a special shout out to our children for not ruining everything like they planned."

The smitten twosome recently welcomed their second child together. They had daughter James in December 2014.

Blake and Ryan met in 2010 on the set of their movie The Green Lantern, and they were officially an item the following year.

Their wedding in South Carolina followed in 2012, and the rest is Hollywood romance history.
