Blake Lively celebrated her 32nd birthday on Sunday, August 25, and she got a solid dose of hilarious birthday trolling on Instagram from her husband, Ryan Reynolds. But she also received some sweet tributes from her friends, including Gigi Hadid, who dedicated a heartfelt post to Lively on Tuesday.
“It’s this Queen’s birthday week and I just want to say how grateful and lucky I am to have a friend like you, B. You are a real one and inspire me in so many ways,” Hadid wrote in the caption of a photo that shows her and Lively hanging out in someone’s kitchen. “I will only be able to thank you enough by making you endless oatmeal griddle cakes and training your children to be world class disposable-camera photographers. I love you! Wishing you every blessing.”
Gigi Hadid and Blake Lively have been close for a while, and they’ve been photographed hanging out a lot at social events, including costume parties organized by Taylor Swift. (At Swift’s epic 2018 New Year’s Eve bash, Lively was Dorothy and Hadid was Mary Poppins.) Plus, Lively actually had some incredibly thoughtful birthday messages for Hadid on her birthday. When Hadid turned 24 in April (remember that denim-themed party?), Lively showered her in compliments and dedicated entire Instagram stories to how much Hadid means to her.
“You love and celebrate others. You build people up rather than tearing them down. You work so hard. You have so much appreciation. You’re present. And kind,” Lively wrote. She even revealed a couple of things about Hadid’s secret talents: “You’re insanely talented at things that no one is good at—like making chairs from scratch out of resin. And you love everyone around you so fully. I’m happy to know your sweet spirit. Yeah. I just spoke about your spirit. Things have gotten deep.”
