Turns out Boston played a major role in getting Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds together.

In a gushing 40th birthday Instagram post to her husband last night, the actress name-dropped O Ya, a Boston and New York sushi restaurant, as the place where she and Reynolds fell in love.

The couple began dating in 2011 when Reynolds was filming “R.I.P.D.” in Boston. They were married in 2012 and now have two children together, daughter James (yes, James!) and a newborn whose name and gender has not yet been revealed.

The social-media-savvy couple stated O Ya as their favorite restaurant in the post. It opened near South Station in the Leather District in 2007, and remains a popular haunt for fans of swanky sushi.

The eatery posted a photo on their own Instagram account featuring Lively and Reynolds posing with owners Tim and Nancy Cushman in their New York City location wishing Reynolds a happy birthday.

Happy Birthday to @vancityreynolds !! Lots of love and sushi
