Acting power couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are growing their family! The Gossip Girl alum showed off her growing baby bump in a sequined mini dress at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit to reveal the news. Blake and Ryan did not make official statements about the news as of yet.
This new little one will be Blake and Ryan’s fourth child together. The couple share three daughters: James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2. The couple welcomed Betty in 2019. Little is known so far about the Simple Favor star’s pregnancy, particularly when she is due to give birth. The couple is notoriously private regarding their personal lives and are unlikely to reveal too many details.
The Red Notice star first met the Betty Buzz founder in 2010 on the set of Green Lantern. Both of them were dating other people at the time, but the couple went on to start dating in 2011. They quietly tied the knot on September 9, 2012. Having a big family seems to have been in the cards for the couple for quite some time. In 2016 while she was pregnant with her second child, Blake joked on the TODAY sharing, “I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders.”
At the end of last year, Ryan shared that he wanted his kids to have as normal of a life as possible. “The biggest thing for me is that I don’t want to miss this time with my kids. I want my kids to have a pretty normal schedule. For many years when my wife Blake would shoot a film, I would not shoot a film and I would be with the kids and vice versa. So we would sort of trade-off. We never really worked at the same time. But always we were away. So the kids were away too. Now that they’re in school, they have a somewhat normal schedule. I think it’s totally important for their development and I really enjoy being a present dad. I love taking them to school in the morning, I love picking them up.”
Congratulations to Blake and Ryan on the news of their fourth child! We wish them all the best as they prepare to grow their family.
