Before her husband was honored at the 36th Annual American Cinematheque Awards in Beverly Hills on Thursday night, the actress gave an emotional speech.
Lively shared behind-the-scenes stories about her husband's passion for his work and his love for his family in an emotional address Thursday night.
Lively, who is pregnant with the couple's fourth child, said Deadpool has exceeded family demands.
He is hard-wired to go home, and he races home much like that 19-year-old lad, whether it's from across the world or a conference down the hall.
Lively said, "Daddy always comes home. He would show up with dirt, fake blood, real blood, artificial scars, superhero clothes, shoes, or clown makeup.
The Gossip Girl actress ended her statement with some humor as Reynolds tears in reaction to his wife's moving comments.
Reynolds combined comedy with humility and thanked Lively, his wife of 10 years and mother of his three girls.
