Excuse us?! Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds apparently welcomed baby No. 3 together … two months ago! The thrilling news broke on October 4, when a source told Us Weekly that the 32-year-old actress gave birth to Inez and James’ newest sibling earlier this summer, and the new baby is already “about 2 months old.”
Pretty much everything about this pregnancy has kept fans guessing. It all started when Blake announced she was expecting by walking the red carpet of Ryan’s Detective Pikachu premiere in May with an already-growing baby bump. Since the duo never revealed how far along Blake was, it was anybody’s guess when the baby was due.
While the sex of their little one is still under wraps, a source told Life & Style exclusively in May that they were hoping for a boy. “They already have two daughters James, 4, and two-year-old Inez, and while they’re just hoping for a healthy child, they’re secretly wanting a boy,” said the source. “Ryan says he’s outnumbered at home, he’s trying to even the playing field, so a son would be great.” It sounds like Ryan was pretty convinced, with the insider adding that he “says he already knows a boy is coming, he says he can feel it.”
The details of the delivery also haven’t been shared yet, but earlier this summer an insider told Life & Style that “she wants to make the experience as calm and easy as possible because Ryan does tend to get fidgety and highly strung as the due date approaches.” They said that her birthing plan was supposed to include “a cozy hospital room setting with plush pillows, curtains, a mellow soundtrack, masseuse and meditation tapes and snacks for Ryan.”
It sounds like even in the short time after welcoming their third child, Blake and Ryan are already making sure to prioritize their relationship and enjoy time alone together as a couple. On October 3, the pair dined out at the TAK Room in the Hudson Yards neighborhood of Manhattan, and Ryan documented it on Instagram for fans to see. We’re just happy that they’re able to get out of the house so soon after adding another member to their family. Congrats, you guys!
