Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds Have Welcomed Their Third Child
| Last updated
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have welcomed their third baby to the world, according to PEOPLE.
The Gossip Girl star and Deadpool actor, 31 and 42 respectively, are yet to announce the news publicly.
The couple - who are already parents to Inez, two, and James, four - announced that they were expecting back in May, when they attended the premiere for Pokémon: Detective Pikachu.
At the time of the announcement, a source close to the pair, who married in 2012, told PEOPLE: "They are so happy and excited about having another baby. They really are the most in-love and in-tune couple, and very hands-on parents. They'd have a dozen kids if they could."
Lively confirmed the news from the 'source' when she said: "I've always wanted a big family. Oh, I'd love 30 [children] if I could."
Reynolds has also admitted that he would love to have a big family, when he said in 2016: "Having a daughter was a dream come true for me. If I could have nine daughters, I would be thrilled. Really, like I genuinely would be." It seems this may not be the last mini-Reynolds to make an appearance.
We're just thrilled that there's a trustworthy source.
In December last year, Reynolds joked that he was 'hoping' for a third child, having opened up about what it was like being part of a Hollywood power couple on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Telling Ellen that, unsurprisingly, his children 'happened from sex', the host quipped: "You've only had sex the twice?"
To which Reynolds deadpanned: "Just the two times, yeah. It's a mercenary job, you know, it's just clinical."
He added: "I'm hoping for a third soon. They say you need to do 10,000 hours of anything you want to be an expert at, so..."
But when pressed on whether he'd be having any more little ones anytime soon, Reynolds shook his head and announced the couple were already busy with their two young kids and, of course, their careers.
He also admitted to not wanting to ever watch Frozen again, which seems fair - albeit a little too late, possibly...
"I have seen Frozen with my daughters so, so many times," he told Ellen. "And people don't know this, but if you play Frozen backwards it's actually a shot for shot remake of The Exorcist."
Here's to baby number three - congratulations, guys.
