Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds Looking At Buying A House Together In Connecticut


Picture perfect couple, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, have only been dating for a few months but apparently they’re looking at buying property together in upstate New York. Us Weekly are reporting that Blake and Ryan want to move into together and an “insider” saw them checking out real estate in the Connecticut town of New Canaan, which is about an hour from NYC. Could Blake and Ryan be moving to the ‘burbs already?

An insider tells Us Weekly’s Hot Stuff that Blake Lively and her boyfriend of six months Ryan Reynolds want to live together and “have been looking around different areas of Connecticut” for a house. The couple had domesticity on the brain April 12, when they strolled through the upscale town of New Canaan (located an hour away from NYC). “They checked out a lot of home décor stores,” says an onlooker of the pair, who peeked inside china boutique the Whitney Shop and jewelry store Pennyweights. Adds a second insider, “They love getting out of the city and appreciate a slower pace.”

And though Lively, 24 – who ended her five-month dalliance with Leo DiCaprio last September – and Ryan, 35, haven’t signed on the dotted line, they are already well practiced at playing house. Reynolds put the LA-area home he shared with his ex-wife Scarlett Johansson, 27, on the market in February and now spends much of his time at Lively’s pad in NYC. “Ryan is practically living with her already,” says one insider. “When he’s at her apartment, it feels like home.”

Connecticut is gorgeous, and New Canaan is the idyllic picture perfect small town, but I have to say, I was pretty surprised to hear that Blake Lively, the ultimate Manhattan Upper East Sider, and Ryan Reynolds, a real city slicker, want to move out to the quieter lifestyle that comes with moving upstate. The image of the pretty house, wholesome lifestyle, and quieter pace, goes hand in hand with settling down, starting a family, thinking about schools IMHO… is this really what Blake and Ryan are considering, do you think?

It is adorable that they’re already so close though that they want to move in together. We have been seeing Ryan spending lots of time in New York (he was spotted on my block just last week). I wouldn’t be surprised if they had been looking at buying something together in the city, it just feels slightly unrealistic that they want to be in New Canaan. But.. maybe they’re looking for a weekender, or an investment property, or perhaps they are genuinely over the fast pace life of city living. Hmmm…

    Seriously…what is up with Blake Lively? She’s keep jumping from guy to guy..I hope this is just a rumor. Reynolds deserves someone GREAT!

      Who are you talking about? I’m really just asking because all I can think of is Penn Badgely for a long time, then Leo Dicaprio for a short time and now Ryan Reynolds for a long time. I’m just confused how she is jumping around. That seems like a fairly normal dating life. I could be forgetting people though?!

      i would hardly say shes been jumping from guy to guy.

    Although I don’t see them making sense together, they apparently are happy and that’s what matters. And I don’t think Blake has jumped from guy to guy. As far as I know, she was in a long term relationship with a costar, had a brief thing with Leonardo and now seems to be in another long term relationship. She’s 24, that’s all pretty normal ( which is the only reason I don’t see them working, he’s 10 years older…but maybe she’s really mature?)

      Whoops, I basically said the same thing regarding her dating life. Haha. Should have kept reading!

  • Shannon

    I think it’s crazy and impetuous to move so fast or buy real estate togethwr when she just hopped off Leo’s dick and the ink on his divorce papers are just dry.

  • AmandaMarie

    Blake has a fairly stable dating life actually. I wish them the best. They seem quite happy.

    Age difference aside I don’t get it why people keep saying they don’t match as couple. I mean both of them are pretty blondes and personality wise they seem to be boring, specially her, which is not a bad thing. They seem like a match made in a bored and pretty heaven.

  • YepYep

    Why all the focus on Blake? He’s the one who doesn’t seem to be able to go very long without having someone to hang on to either. Actually that’s describing more than half of Hollywood, not just these two, lol. Do these people ever just focus on themselves for more than a couple weeks between their revolving relationships? “Surface dating” is not focusing on themselves in any way and going to rehab for exhaustion or whatever does not count as “me-time” either. Well, I wish them the best and I’m betting we won’t have to wait much longer for either a break up from these two or a quickie wedding with a divorce 9 months later.
