Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have welcomed baby number two.

People report Blake gave birth baby number two in New York. Representatives for the A-list couple are yet to confirm details, including the baby’s name and sex.

The new addition to the family will join big sister, James, 22 months.

It’s possible the couple are taking the same ‘withhold-all-details’ approach they took when daughter, James, was born in December 2014.

The celebrity couple didn’t reveal their baby’s name name until three months after she was born, and her actual birth date wasn’t known until Ryan Reynolds posted a birthday tweet on December 16, 2015.

Blake Lively looks radiant on the red carpet in Cannes.

Throughout the course of her second pregnancy, the Gossip Girls star has been quite the maternity-style maven.

In May, a radiant Blake revealed her growing bump to the world, as she graced the red carpet at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of her film Café Society.

While baby number two has just arrived, it’s no secret the stellar couple want a big family.


“I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders,” Blake told Today in June.

“You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children.”
