Ryan Reynolds and his Gossip Girl ladyfriend Blake Lively have been spotted house hunting in Connecticut.
The pair have been dating for six months since meeting on the set of 2011’s The Green Lantern, when Ryan was married to Scarlett Johansson and Blake was dating Leonardo DiCaprio.
Ryan, People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2010 and Blake, AskMen’s Most Desirable Woman in the World 2011 have previously been spotted inspecting a $4.5 million New York apartment near The Empire State Building, but they’re now clearly after somewhere calmer and quieter.
“Blake and Ryan would like to live, as much as they can, like a normal couple.
“They love getting out of the city and appreciate a slower pace,” a source divulged to Us Weekly.
Home sweet New Canaan home
While ‘Ryan and Blake have been looking around different areas of Connecticut’ the best bet for their new home is in New Canaan, an hour out of New York, where the pair recently spent a weekend checking out ‘a lot of home décor stores’.
Moving to New Canaan won’t be a case of exiling to the country for the pair, as New York’s rich and famous have been moving to the picturesque town since the 1800s, and the couple will be in good company, as Katherine Heigl, Harry Connick Jr, David Letterman and Paul Simon have all made homes there.
This next step for Ryan and Blake has been a long time coming, apparently.
“Ryan is practically living with her already…When he's at her apartment, it feels like home,” the inside source added.
We think Serena van der Woodsen would definitely approve!
