Actors Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are notoriously cheeky and the announcement of their fourth child was no different. Blake, who revealed she and Ryan were expecting their fourth child in September of last year, shared a snap of herself celebrating the Super Bowl with something noticeably missing: her baby bump.
The Rhythm Section actress and the Spirited star are known for keeping their personal lives private, so it isn’t too surprising that the couple would forgo an official birth announcement for their fourth child. No details about the couple’s child are known, including their name, sex, and birth date. This little one joins the family with the couple’s three daughters, James, 8, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3.
In November, Ryan talked about how his daughters were feeling about welcoming a new sibling. “They’re in. They love it. They’re ready.” As for how Ryan was feeling about becoming a dad again, the Deadpool star shared, “I’m very excited. We’d have to be. You know, you’d have to be a moron to do this four times if you didn’t like it. It’s gonna be nuts, but we’re very excited.” Last month, before the actor accepted an American Cinematheque Award, his wife gushed about her husband and his commitment to their family. “This man, he has contributed so much to the world’s most international happiness with his art, his heart, his philanthropy, his humor, his integrity, his unmatched work ethic, his self-deprecating levity, his hard-earned depths in his scripts. And now I am his home, and our girls are his home.”
Shortly after Blake revealed her pregnancy at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit, the Gossip Girl alum shared a collection of pictures from her pregnancy thus far. The actress, who is adamant about the media not violating the privacy of celebrity children, added a caption calling out the paparazzi. “Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a 🦄 sighting will leave me alone. You freak me and my kids out. Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications who share photos of children. You have all the power against them. And thank you to the media who have a “No Kids Policy”. You all make all the difference.”
Congratulations to Blake and Ryan on the birth of their fourth child! We hope they are enjoying their life as a family of six.
