Ryan Reynolds can't keep his hands off Blake Lively

RYAN Reynolds was "really sweet" to Blake Lively at the Angel City Ball.

The couple, who got married in September 2012, made their first red carpet appearance together in New York City on Monday night (20.10.14) since announcing they are expecting their first child, and were extremely affectionate at the event.  

A source told E! News: "Ryan was really sweet throughout the whole night. He was rubbing her shoulders, putting his arms around her and when Blake got up, he got up.  

"They were smiling with each other and he kissed her on her cheek at one point. He also touched her belly."   

The 27-year-old actress avoided alcohol at the bash and left early with her 37-year-old husband.  

The insider said: "During the event, Blake raised her champagne glass to Denise Rich's toast to kick off the event, then promptly sat down without drinking it. She was seated with good friend, Lorraine Schwartz, and seemed to be having a nice time chatting to the other guests seated at her table. They didn't stay very long though and left before most of the performances began."  

Another eyewitness also revealed the former 'Gossip Girl' actress couldn't resist giving Ryan "a good booty squeeze" on the red carpet.
