WTF Was Ryan Reynolds Thinking With His Birth Playlist for Blake Lively?

We are very surprised Blake Lively was OK with this song being played during labor

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are like two unicorns frolicking in a meadow… which is to say they are mysterious, and in my opinion, not real. Every time I see either of them in a movie, I have to ask myself, “Why do I have chills?” They’re not "devastatingly good acting" chills, they’re "there is a ghost drooling down my neck" chills. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are mirages of perfection, and for that reason we also know very little about their personal lives.

On a recent episode of Fact or Fiction with Michael Kors (WTF even is that? I’m telling you about it, and I don’t even really know), Lively revealed that during labor, her wax figure husband played for her none other than “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye. She also revealed that her first kiss was on camera when she was 16 and her first crush was on David Letterman, so I’m going to say that the clip fully supports my original thesis that she is not real.

But back to that song choice. Let there be no mistake, that is a song about sex. And it’s just a little bit odd absolutely insane to play it while your wife has her vagina eviscerated to squirt out your baby. Yes, sex is how the baby got in there. But bringing sex into the birthing room is just funny. According to Lively, it did make her doctor laugh at least, “so hard I thought she was going to drop our baby.”

And that’s all the evidence you need that Blake Lively is a unicorn ghost mirage, because only a unicorn ghost mirage could have her husband play a notoriously sexual song while she gives birth, to a belly-laughing OB-GYN’s delight, while the baby may or may have not have been dropped and not accidentally set the room on fire with her rage.

What's the weirdest song you think could be played during a birth? Tell us in the comments.
