Celebrations are in order! Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have welcomed their third child, according to sources. The two Hollywood A-listers kept the news a secret for almost two months, according to the Daily Mail. Blake revealed her pregnancy in May when she attended the premiere of Detective Pikachu, which Reynolds starred in. The pair remained tight-lipped about the details surrounding the pregnancy, so it's hardly surprising they chose to keep the arrival on the down low, too.
As it stands, the couple still hasn't revealed the gender of their new addition. 32-year-old Lively and 42-year-old Reynolds already share daughters Inez and James, who they are often pictured out and about with. Lively has made it clear that she wants a big family, telling Allure in 2012 that she would have 30 if she could. While they still have some way to go, it's good to see that the Reynolds clan is happily growing. The Gossip Girl star has also been honest about the trials and tribulations of parenting.
"Inez was not sleeping through the night because she was a baby. And then she finally started sleeping through the night because she was old enough, then my older daughter, James, decided that she doesn't sleep through the night anymore," Lively told PEOPLE in 2017. Clearly, the couple won't be catching any Z's any time soon with three children under 5 in the household.
The actors have made a point to try and keep their kids out of the spotlight as much as possible, wanting to give them a normal life. Reynolds has been vocal about his distaste for parents who encourage their children to pursue acting at an early age, even telling one reporter that they may as well just skip stardom and go straight to rehab. Both Lively and Reynolds had good upbringings and seemingly wish to emulate that, rather than having their kids' lives encroached upon by the glitz and glamor of Hollywood.
The couple married in 2012 after meeting on the set of Green Lantern the previous year. Prior to his union with Lively, Reynolds was briefly married to Scarlett Johannsson, while Lively enjoyed a long-term romance with her Gossip Girl co-star, Penn Badgely.
