Blake Lively Is Pregnant With Her 4th Baby With Ryan Reynolds
Blake Lively is pregnant! It looks like Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds will be getting a new baby soon. Thursday, at the Forbes Power Women's Summit at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, the Gossip Girl star showed off her growing baby bump.
Even though she and Reynolds haven't said anything about it in public, photos from the event show Lively grinning in a sparkly sheer minidress and putting her hand on her stomach.
After getting married in 2012, Lively and Reynolds already have three daughters: James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2. Reynolds said back in October that he was going to stop making movies for a while so he could spend more time with his family.
Lively, who is 35 years old, told people she was pregnant on Thursday, September 15, when she posed for pictures in a mini dress at the 10th annual Forbes Power Women's Summit.
As she walked into the party in her sparkly gold dress, her growing belly showed. A bystander tells Us that the "radiant" founder of Betty Buzz wasn't "trying to hide" her pregnancy when she gently held her stomach before going into her panel.
The two started dating in 2011, and they got married in South Carolina the following year. The Gossip Girl star and her Green Lantern co-star got married in 2012, and their first child, daughter James, who is now 7, was born two years later. Inez, who is now 5 years old, and Betty, who is 2 years old, were born in 2016 and 2019.
With the help of Taylor Swift's song "Betty," the couple announced the name of their third child in July 2020. The next year, the actor, who is 45 years old, told Jess Cagle that he and his wife "implicitly" trust the Grammy winner, who is 32 years old.
The Canadian then said,
"She’s very sensitive to any of that stuff. And obviously, the song has nothing to do with our kids other than our kids’ names. But I mean, what an honor. We thought it was pretty damn amazing. We still do. You know, I still walk down the street and shake my head thinking, ‘I can’t believe that happened."
In November 2021, the Deadpool actor told Access that he loves being a dad to girls and "wouldn't have it any other way," even though he "didn't know anything about girls" at first. Reynolds told the outlet at the time,
“I grew up with boys, and I was constantly being thrown through walls when there was a perfectly good door five feet away. We love having our girls."
In the same month, the Golden Globe nominee said in an interview with Today that his and Lively's house was "absolute mayhem" and joked,
“Every day, you’re just clinging by the skin of your teeth. … I was always afraid that I would have boys, but now that I have girls, I should have always been afraid. They’re just as rough.”
Last year, the star of "The Proposal" stopped acting so she could spend more time with James, Inez, and Betty. Reynolds told Fatherly in November 2021,
“Part of it is to allow Blake to do some of the things that she wants to do and get to play in her own sandbox, And the other part is purely selfish. It’s just that I don’t want to miss this time. You don’t get this time back. … It’s quite literally a circus all the time. There’s always something going on. There’s always some extracurricular thing that the kids are doing, that sort of thing. So, yeah, I’ll be there doing all that stuff. I’m going to experiment with my cooking abilities again. It’s going to be nice.”
Lively said at the time about the paparazzi,
“I'd rather not have to deal with it at all, but we knew the lifestyle we were getting into, and while it's hard…it's another thing when it's our child [Lively had welcomed James then]. She didn't have the opportunity to make a decision about what she wants.”
Reynolds told Details the year before that both he and his wife came from big families. In 2013, the Golden Globe winner said,
"We’d love to have a big family. A lot of people say it’s crazy, but we’ll only know when we’re there, you know? We’ll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think."
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are adding a new member to their family. Today, Lively showed off her pregnant belly in a sequined dress at the Forbes Power Women's Summit, where she was being honored. She told the crowd that she and her husband are expecting their fourth child.
Lively and Reynolds have made it a point to protect the privacy of their family by not posting pictures of their kids on social media. Lively told Marie Claire in 2016 why she had made this choice. The couple wants their kids to have a normal childhood, just like they did.
