Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds‘ family just got a little bigger! The longtime couple welcomed their fourth child, joining daughters James, 8, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3. The news came after Lively posted a photo on Super Bowl Sunday with Reynolds and his mother. Fans immediately noticed that her baby bump was gone. While she didn’t comment on the observation, she captioned the post: “Puppy Bowl Sunday 2023🥘 🍲 🥧 been busy.”
The actress announced that she was expecting in mid-September when she arrived at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit with a growing baby bump on display. Lively chose a glittering sequin long-sleeve Valentino mini dress to showcase her belly, with a white scarf tied around her neck.
Four months later, Lively showed off her bump again when she posed with her trainer in the gym in “before and after” photos wearing a black sports bra and leggings. The “after” shot featured her baby bump, prompting the hilarious caption: “been doing @donsaladino ‘s workout program for months now. Something isn’t working.”
After she announced the news of her pregnancy, she clapped back at paparazzi who she claimed were waiting outside her home and “freaking” out her kids.
“Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a sighting will leave me alone. You freak me and my kids out,” she wrote in a slideshow of photos that included candid pregnancy photos. “Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications who share photos of children. You have all the power against them. And thank you to the media who have a “No Kids Policy”. You all make all the difference ♥️. Much love! Xxb.”
Lively and Reynolds lead a very private life when they’re not on-screen acting in hit projects or occasionally roasting each other on social media in hilarious fashion. Reynolds recently gushed about expanding their family to Entertainment Tonight saying, “I’m very excited. We’d have to be. You know, you’d have to be a moron to do this four times if you didn’t like it. It’s gonna be nuts, but we’re very excited.”
