It seems Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have babies on the brain! According to a new report, the 31-year-old actress and her actor husband, 41, are “aching” to have more kids and give daughters James, 3, and Inez, 23 months, a sibling — or two!
“They both have great careers, but they love being ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ more than anything. They’d be very excited to have more children,” a source told OK! magazine in a recent issue, adding that Blake and Ryan “are truly in the best place they’ve ever been.”
The insider also dished on buzz that Blake might already be expecting the couple’s third child! “They’ve always envisioned having their kids close in age, so right now the timing would be perfect,” the source said, adding they’re “hoping for twins.”
“They’ve always talked about having more kids and how fun it would be to have a boy and a girl at once. Plus, it would make it an even four!” the insider gushed. Interestingly, Blake has reportedly been acting like she could be expecting, too. “[She] has been eating lots of sweets and weird food combos, like truffles and ice cream — at the same time. She also seems to have that pregnancy glow!” the source told OK!
It’s no secret that Blake and Ryan want to give James and Inez siblings as they’ve both spoken openly about their desires to expand their family in the past. “We both come from big families — my parents did four, Blake’s did five,” Ryan has said. “A lot of people say it’s crazy — but we’ll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think.”
As for Blake, the A Simple Favor star once said if she “could spit out a littler of kids” she would. “[Blake] loved growing up with so many siblings and wants the same for her own children. She’s a total natural when it comes to motherhood and is someone who loves being pregnant,” the insider shared.
The A-list couple definitely has room to grow their family, too. Back in 2012 — the same year they tied the knot! — Blake and Ryan bought a lavish mansion in Bedford, NY. “It’s the perfect place for them to raise their kids away from the spotlight,” the source said of the Reynolds family’s home.
According to the insider, there is already talk among locals that Blake has “started designing an over-the-top nursey” for a new addition or two. “[Blake] is busy putting together the perfect nursery for a little boy or girl — or both! She has a keen eye for detail and is said to be working on every aspect of the room to make it fit for a little prince or princess,” the source shared.
“Blake and Ryan have money to burn and nothing is more important than their kids! James and Inez are the most important things in their lives. They do everything they can to make sure the kids have the most normal upbringing possible,” the insider added. We can’t wait for the Reynolds girls to get a little sibling!
