Blake Lively has reportedly given birth! The actress and her husband, Ryan Reynolds, allegedly welcomed their first child together, shortly before the new year.
Apparently, their little one arrived earlier than expected, but mom and baby are both healthy and doing well.
As with all things Blake and Ryan, details are scarce, so it’s not yet known whether they are new parents to a boy or girl.
Hype Life Magazine have reached out to representatives for Blake and Ryan, who have so far been unavailable for comment.
This is the first child for Lively, 27, and Reynolds, 38, who secretly wed in 2012. The fashion-forward star announced she was pregnant in October on her website Preserve.
“It’s something that I’ve always wanted ever since I was a little girl,” she told Us Weekly shortly after the reveal.
“I never knew what I wanted to do for a living but I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I had come from a big family, so it was always important to me. So it’s just the excitement of that finally being here.”
That same month, Reynolds joked about what they would be naming their kid.
“On the plane over here I was trying to think of baby names. I don’t want a name that’s anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y,” he laughed. “So I’m going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds … that’s if it’s a girl.”
In all seriousness, the actor told People, “I’m just excited about having a buddy… For a lot of new dads, you tend to dwell on the mistakes you don’t want to make. I’m at that stage still where I’m focused primarily on being open and understanding and leaving a lot of room for error.”
Reynolds, meanwhile, is more than ready for fatherhood and is even prepared for diaper duty.
“I don’t have a weak stomach,” Reynolds told People in November. “I’m good with diapers, diarrhea and all that kind of stuff because I have lots of nieces and nephews, so I’ve done it all before.”
In fact, the lovebirds are so thrilled that they’ve even begun talking about baby No. 2.
“They are so excited they are having a baby and are happy Blake’s had a pretty easy pregnancy,” a source previously told E! News.
Blake wasn’t exaggerating when she said she wanted a big family. In the September issue of Marie Claire, an already pregnant lively hinted there would be more on the way.
“If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would,” she said, referencing a previous comment she made about wanting 30 children. “I gotta get started.”
One down, 29 more to go.
