Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are serious couple goals. Blake and Ryan have a fun-loving, easygoing vibe that shows theirs is a sincere bond.
Whether they’re cracking jokes in tweets about one another or rocking a red carpet together, it’s clear that they’re the real deal. During an appearance to promote Ryan’s latest film, Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, on Thursday night in New York City, the couple revealed a secret they’d been keeping from fans. Blake arrived at the premiere donning a gorgeous yellow dress that hugged a prominent baby bump.
The pregnancy will make the Reynolds a family of five.
The two are already parents to two daughters: 4-year-old James and 2-year-old Inez. Blake and Ryan are very dedicated to preserving their kids’ privacy. The kids have only ever publicly appeared at Ryan’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony in late 2016. In an interview with Marie Claire UK, Blake explained, “My husband and I chose a profession and a side effect of that is your personal life is public. Our child hasn’t had the opportunity to choose whether or not she wants her personal life to be public or not. So in order to give her as much normality as possible, we want her to have a childhood like we had. So we can’t really throw her into the lion’s den that is LA, not that we really want to.”
