The deadpan, tart-tongued Ryan Reynolds—Deadpool actor, father of two, and Twitter ingenue—is also something of a romantic, it turns out. Blake Lively’s husband shared the sweet story of the early stages of his relationship with the Cafe Society actor in a new interview with GQ, and there is dancing involved.

He said he knew it was “going to happen” with Lively when the two were on a date. The specific moment?

But when it came to the important part of the story, that all-important first-dance song, he was unusually tight-lipped. Looks like even motormouth superhero Deadpool needs to keep some secrets about his love life.

Golden couple Lively and Reynolds, who have been married for four years, welcomed their second daughter together in September.
