“I took a refresher course — focusing on infant and toddler CPR. It takes only a few hours and it’s also kinda, sorta fun,” wrote the father of two before ending his post with his trademark wit.
“Thank you to Dan from Viva First Aid for the lesson. And thank you to these two helpful yet lifeless dolls whose vacant ocular cavities will haunt me until end times.”
Reynolds also revealed a personal story in which he utilized his training to save the life of a family member.
“Years ago, I took a CPR course thru the Red Cross. And holy s–t, I ended up saving my nephew’s life because I knew what to do! True story!” he wrote.
Joining her husband in promoting the course, Blake Lively took a quick snap during her session and made a call-to-action to all parents.
“ALL MAMAS AND DADDIES OUT THERE– I can’t recommend this enough, I took a CPR class with with a focus on babies and toddlers. Google “infant CPR class near me” and you’ll see lots of listings,” Lively wrote.
“For those of you who haven’t done it, you will love it. It’s so helpful by giving you knowledge, tools, and some peace of mind,” she added.

Lively and Reynolds became first time parents in 2014 when they welcomed daughter James into the world and two years later another daughter, Ines, followed. The actors largely keep their children out of the spotlight (save for an appearance during Reynolds’ Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony and the occasional posts on social media).
Despite their celebrity lifestyles, the couple shares similar child-raising stories of other parents, as Reynolds revealed on Good Morning America in March.
“I’ve always had empathy for parents, especially flying. I remember before I had kids, I was always like, ‘God, that’s hard.’ Because you can see they’re sweating and they’re nervous because their kids are yelling and everyone’s mad at them,” said Reynolds, adding, “I’m the same way.”
“I would rather drink a piping hot bowl of liquid rabies than get on a plane with my two children,” he joked.
