Blake Lively expecting fourth child with Ryan Reynolds

Blake Lively expecting fourth child with Ryan Reynolds

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are going to have their fourth child together.

Blake Lively has announced that she's expecting her fourth child with husband Ryan Reynolds after showing off her baby bump.

The celebrity couple already have a trio of daughters and it looks like a new addition to the family will be on the way in a matter of months.

Lively and Reynolds, who tied the knot in 2012, will soon be welcoming a new baby who will join sisters seven-year-old James, five-year-old Inez and three-year-old Betty.

By the way, if you're wondering why the couple named their eldest daughter James it's in honour of Reynolds' father.

Gossip Girl star Lively announced the happy news at the Forbes Power Women's Summit, where she joked about her love of 'creating' things.

The 35-year-old joked about the new life coming into her family as a way of alluding to the new child on the way.

She said: "I just like to create. Whether that's baking or storytelling or businesses or humans, I just really like creating."

The happy couple last announced they were set to have a new child back in 2019 when Blake showed she was pregnant at the premiere for her husband's movie Detective Pikachu.

Baby number three was Betty, who pretty soon will no longer be the baby of the family.

Blake and Ryan like to keep their family life private and have largely kept their daughters out of the glaring spotlight of fame, no easy task when both parents are major stars.

While they do occasionally post pictures of themselves with their children, Reynolds and Lively largely keep their social media channels free and let their kids grow up in private.

They've said they want to give their children a 'nice, normal upbringing' saying they'd 'feel really selfish' if they didn't give their kids the kind of childhood they both enjoyed.

Ten years and three kids on from getting married, Blake and Ryan still look to be as in love as ever, and their secret appears to be that they still 'really like each other' all this time later.

People are huge fans of the way Ryan Reynolds still seems to be a huge fan of his wife a decade after tying the knot.

The couple met on the set of superhero movie Green Lantern, meaning that at least one good thing came out of that movie.

Fans of Blake and Ryan have taken to social media to send the couples plenty of 'congrats' messages.
