Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue, the gold-winning figure skaters from Canada, are the Ross and Rachel of this year’s Winter Olympics.
Although Moir addressed romance rumors as “none of your business” — complete with sassy snaps — their fans are still convinced that his partnership with Virtue is more than just a professional relationship.
Fellow Canadian Ryan Reynolds is one of those fans. On Monday he tweeted his support for the Team Canada, and implied that the figure skating duo was a couple: “And thank you @tessavirtue & @ScottMoir for agreeing to raise my children as your own.”
Although Virtue neither confirmed nor denied the relationship rumors, fans couldn’t get enough of her response.
“And here I’ve been wracking my brain to come up with a post-competition career path … Scott, get the mini van!”

SCOTT, GET THE MINI VAN!
It inspired this very Canadian photoshop.
Who wouldn’t watch a show about the two babysitting?
I need the reality show where Tessa & Scott babysit for Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively

Just imagine, Olympic figure skaters and nanny extraordinaires, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. They’d drive through Canada in their mini van with the Reynolds-Lively kids.

And the idea of that actually happening has Virtue/Moir shippers crying.
If their performance on the ice shows us anything, it’s that the pair works together really well.
And even if they never confirm their relationship status, fans — including Ryan Reynolds — will keep dreaming.
