Pregnant Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Are ‘Hoping for a Boy’ With Baby No. 4: They ‘Love Being Parents’
Keep your fingers crossed! Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are expecting their fourth child, a male, after having three daughters.
“They’re hoping for a boy this time,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “Of course, parents just want a healthy baby, regardless of gender.”
The expectant actress, 35, and the Deadpool actor, 45, “enjoy being parents,” according to a source, who adds that whether their fourth kid is a boy or a girl, they are eager to grow their family.
“The timing is ideal because all of their children are two years apart, so they’re sticking to the trend,” the insider says.
On Thursday, September 15, Us revealed that the Gossip Girl alum is expecting her fourth child with Reynolds.
An observer told Us at the time that the “radiant” Age of Adelaide actress wasn’t “trying to hide” her belly, adding that she was softly stroking her tummy before stepping into the panel.
“Blake feels glad that the secret has been revealed. She kept it in until she couldn’t anymore!” a source told Us exclusively on Friday, September 16. “She enjoys dressing up her baby bulge and wants to create a fashion statement….” She’s really radiant.”
During Thursday’s event, Lively enthused about her job as a mother and businesswoman, adding, “I simply want to create.” “Whether it’s baking, storytelling, companies, or humanity, I just enjoy creating.”
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants actress went on to say that she is “so fascinated with my family,” and that her love for them and her profession has helped her to advance in her career.
“I’m highly into product development. “I don’t want to be a part of it if I can’t make it, since there are so many fantastic things out there,” she remarked to the audience. “I want to build something that is lacking, and I want my children to witness that in all aspects.”
Since 2012, Lively has been married to her Green Lantern co-star. Since then, the couple has had three daughters: James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2.
