They Welcomed Baby No 4 This Month

James, 8, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3 years old, are the children of Reynolds and Lively — Ryan and Blake got married in 2012. Although no information regarding baby number four has been shared, news of their newest addition's birth broke earlier this month.

The Reynolds Are Excited

"We're very excited. Look, we wouldn't do this four times if we didn't love it," Reynolds said. "Everybody's doing great. Everybody's actually doing fantastic. If we hadn't figured it out by now, I think we'd be in deep, deep trouble."

His Office

He jokingly chipped in:

"It's a zoo over here. This is my office here. To be honest, I'll probably spend the rest of my life in here."

Ryan Didn't Reveal The Sex Of The Baby

Reynolds didn't reveal the sex of his fourth child. He told the interviewer:

"I ain't telling," he said. "This ain't a birth announcement." 

How The Public Became Aware Of Their Baby

In actuality, the couple didn't announce the baby's birth. They only revealed the birth of their child to the public by posting an Instagram photo in which Lively was no longer pregnant.

"We didn't make a birth announcement, we just posted a photo and the media sort of did what it does after that."

"Falling in love is great, but do you like each other? That's kind of the question you've got to ask yourself going into it," Reynolds told ET in 2021. "We've always liked each other. We grow together. We learn from each other. I'm lucky to have a buddy." 

They Met On The Set Of Green Lantern

At Comic-Con in San Diego, the Green Lantern cast members appeared to talk about their upcoming superhero movie. At the time, Lively was dating Penn Badgley, her Gossip Girl co-star, and Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson. But there was no denying their chemistry.

The Start Of Their Ultimate Love Story

In February 2016, Reynolds revealed in an interview that he and Lively went on a double date about a year and a half after finishing Green Lantern.

“We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl — and that was, like, the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across.”

Meeting Again By Fate

They kept in touch until they discovered themselves on a train bound for Boston. In a 2021 appearance on the Smartless podcast, Reynolds discussed the chance encounter:

"Next thing you know, she was going to Boston, I was going to Boston, and I said, 'Well, I'll ride with you.' We got on the train and we rode together. I was just begging her to sleep with me." 

He added that their relationship progressed "like a fairy tale." 

They Had Their Secret Wedding In 2012

In 2012, the couple had a secret wedding at the Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, where the romantic drama The Notebook was shot.

Surprise! Early in October 2014, Lively revealed on her lifestyle website Preserve that she was expecting the couple's first child.

On Expanding Their Family

In 2016, the couple gave birth to a daughter named Inez in a hospital in New York City.

Though they didn't publicly confirm anything, it was reported that the couple had welcomed baby number three during the summer of 2019.

Their friend Taylor Swift later revealed the baby girl's name in one of her songs. And now that baby number four has arrived, they are overjoyed.
