Like most viewers of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Games, actor Ryan Reynolds fell under the spell of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, a legendary ice dance duo from his home country. When they became Olympic champions once again this week, he sent them a shout-out. And naturally, Reynolds took a unique approach.

"Go @TeamCanada!!" he wrote in a tweet that also honored gold medal-winning skier Cassie Sharp. "@CassieSharpe is a legend -- makin' it look easy. And thank you tessavirtue & ScottMoir for agreeing to raise my children as your own."

Reynolds is known for his tongue-in-cheek tweets, and we like this one because it possibly places him among the legions of Tessa and Scott shippers, many of whom only recently discovered the ice dancers but now suddenly can't get enough of the skaters' chemistry, both on and off the ice. "SNL" star Leslie Jones, for example, is a convert. When the comedian watched them skate with figure skaters Adam Rippon and Scott Hamilton, she asked, "Are they getting in trouble for how sexy they are?"

Virtue and Moir have been vague about their relationship status, leaving fans to their very fervid speculation. Many are hoping for an Olympics proposal, and others are taking it even further and calling for little "ice dance babies" now that the skaters look likely to retire.

If fans' dreams come true, Virtue and Moir might be too busy to raise Reynolds and Blake Lively's kids. He might have to start considering a back-up plan.
