Ryan Reynolds got a gift from Blake Lively that really brought him back to his childhood.
In a post on Instagram, the Canadian actor showed off a painting his wife gave him, depicting a child delivering newspapers for the Vancouver Sun, which also happens to have been Reynolds’ first job.

My first job was delivering newspapers for the Vancouver Sun. The house in the painting is my childhood home. My brothers and I spent years trying to kill each other on that lawn. There are a lot of Easter eggs in the painting, including my idol, John Candy on the front page of the newspaper. The house no longer stands but it’s a living, breathing thing in my head. This piece of art is the greatest present my wife has ever given me. It was created by @dannygalieote. If there’s ever a fire, I’m grabbing this first. I’ll come back for Blake.
Reynolds also pointed out a number of the “Easter eggs” in the painting, which Lively commissioned from American artist Danny Galieote.
The boy in the painting is standing in front of Reynolds’ own childhood home in Vancouver, and the front page of the paper features Canadian comedian John Candy, the actor’s “idol.”
“If there’s ever a fire, I’m grabbing this first,” Reynolds wrote. “I’ll come back for Blake.”
