Ryan Reynolds is a devoted family man who has taken his wife Blake Lively and their children along on his latest career journey with Wrexham AFC

The Deadpool actor is incredibly proud of the Welsh football team, who he purchased in early 2021 with co-chairman Rob McElhenney, and was delighted when they won 5-1 against Oldham Athletic on Saturday.

 Taking to Instagram to share his pride, the father-of-four wrote: "Bonkers match. Incredible work all around. Mullin with the [top hat emoji]."

 Ryan's wife Blake will be just as happy with the news, with the actor previously revealing that she is just as invested in Wrexham.

 It was Blake that encouraged Ryan to purchase the football team, with the actor previously revealing that she's "actually more obsessed with Wrexham than I am."

Just last weekend, Ryan took his entire family, including his newborn baby, to Wrexham's football grounds for the first time. 

The star posed for photos holding his newborn - whose name and gender have not been revealed - and his three daughters, James, eight, Inez, six, and three-year-old Betty.

While this was most of Ryan's family's first time in Wrexham, his eight-year-old daughter previously joined her dad during a visit to the stadium earlier in the year. 

He took his first trip to Wrexham in 2022, having not been able to come along sooner due to the pandemic restrictions.

While his family couldn't make it on the first occasion, they did feature in a cameo on the FX series Welcome to Wrexham. In an episode that aired in September, Ryan was seen receiving a FaceTime call from his wife and daughters.

In the clip, he said: "Gotta answer this,” and one of his daughters was heard saying: “Hi dad, look at you on the field!” Though the FaceTime call wasn't shown, Blake was heard rooting on her husband and saying: “Wow, that’s so cool.” 

Now balancing life as a family-of-six, Ryan and Blake couldn't be happier. 

Blake had shared a photo of herself on Instagram, showing the A Simple Favor actress visibly without her baby bump, alluding in her caption that it was a recent snap and that she had "been busy."
