Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have welcomed their fourth child together.

The Gossip Girl actress hinted she had secretly given birth as she posted a series of photos of her celebrating Super Bowl Sunday with Ryan and his mother Tammy on Instagram. In the snap, she no longer has a baby bump.

Page Six later confirmed Blake's baby had been born.

The star couple announced in September 2022 that Blake was pregnant again, with the A Simple Favor actress calling out paparazzi for "waiting outside my home" to take photos of her and her children.

She wrote, "Here are photos of me pregnant in real life" to ward the photographers off.

Blake and Ryan, who secretly married in 2012, share three daughters together: eight-year-old James, six-year-old Inez, and three-year-old Betty.

The Deadpool star previously shared he was hoping for a girl on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, as he had experience being a father to daughters.

"I know I'm a bit of a hen myself. I know girls. I'm a girl dad. I'm used to that. I'm ready for that," he stated, noting that at that point, he and Blake did not know the gender of their fourth child and that they prefer to not find out until the birth.
