Melissa McCarthy invited Blake Lively and her husband to SNL and it was great.



<br>

Melissa McCarthy’s “Saturday Night Live” opening monologue  — a tribute to moms on the eve of Mother’s Day — was adorable, as she led a smiley, unassuming mom from the audience, a woman named Joan, on a backstage (and hilarious) tour of the SNL studios.

But it was one line during the segment that especially caught the internet’s attention.

Actors Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who wed in 2012, were backstage during McCarthy’s opening as part of the sketch.

“I may have been drunk when I invited them,” McCarthy told Joan as they passed by the couple. “Don’t worry, the Livelys are fine. They can handle it.”

Did you catch the bit that had people on Twitter cheering? It was the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment when McCarthy nonchalantly referred to the couple as “the Livelys” (as opposed to “the Reynolds”).

People … loved it.

Like, really loved it.

It took the opening monologue from pretty darn cute to absolutely delightful in seconds.

It was an easy-to-miss moment, but one that clearly struck a chord. Maybe it’s time we rethink the outdated expectation that a woman should take her husband’s name after marriage?

It seems like the world could use a few more Livelys.
