Congrats are in order, as Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have finally welcomed baby no. 3 into the world. And they kept it as a secret because their new addition reportedly arrived in August!
This is not a drill! Blake Lively, 31, and Ryan Reynolds, 42, reportedly became parents of three children earlier this summer, as the former Gossip Girl star gave birth to their latest addition sometime in August. The baby is already “two months old”, a source told US Weekly, and thus far, the baby’s gender has not yet been revealed. While the news may seem shocking to some, Blake and Ryan have been extremely private in the past when it comes to the birth of their children. When their two little girls were born, the births weren’t announced until several weeks later. And the pair is the same way with their kids’ names — their second daughter Ines’ name was never revealed by the couple, but it was reported two months after her birth. HollywoodLife reached out to Blake and Ryan’s reps to confirm the baby news, but we did not receive an immediate response.
This joyous news comes just a few months after Blake unexpectedly announced her pregnancy on May 2, when she walked the red carpet at the premiere of Ryan’s new movie, Detective Pikachu, and showed off a major baby bump. Blake made the announcement without even saying a word, while walking the carpet in a skin-tight canary yellow gown that accentuated the bun in her oven.
Blake and Ryan were already parents to two daughters — 4-year-old James and 2-year-old Ines– before the birth of their baby, so now they’re a happy family of five. As for a name, it might be a while before we learn it, as the couple took three months to announce James’ name. We actually didn’t learn it until Ryan appeared on The Today Show in Feb. 2015, when he joked that the baby’s name was “Butternut Summer Squash”. Then, he got serious and said, “It’s James. Everyone knows”, and explained that he didn’t want to make a big announcement because “I didn’t want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media. Because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls and little teenage girls sometimes scan through the archives and go, ‘Why did you do that?”
Blake and Ryan met in early 2010 while filming Green Lantern, in which she co-starred. In Oct. 2011, it was first reported that they were dating, and on Sept. 9, 2012, they got married.
