Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are enjoying parenthood so much so that they’ve decided to add a third child to the bunch.
The Hollywood couple, who are already parents to their daughters James, 4, and Inez, 2, debuted their baby bump at the Pokemon Detective Pikachu premiere back in May. And now they are getting ready to welcome their third child, who is due sometime in the fall.
According to Life and Style Magazine, Lively and Reynolds are supposedly doing whatever they can to prep for a third child. Luckily for them, they’ve got a great support system from friends and family members who have been very helpful in helping with their children while they continue to work on their Hollywood careers.
Ever since the couple tied the knot back in 2012, they’ve taken on less work to spend more time with their children. But they haven’t disappeared from the spotlight altogether. One source close to the couple says that Blake has a great support system in Los Angeles and several mom friends who often come over for playdates.
And while the couple enjoys raising their two daughters, they’ve made it no secret that they are hoping for a little baby boy the third time around. Reynolds, especially, wants someone to hang out with while the girls are together. Apparently, he told friends that since he didn’t grow up with any sisters he can “feel” that a boy is on his way.
“They already have two daughters James and Inez, and while they’re just hoping for a healthy child, they’re secretly wanting a boy,” an insider exclusively revealed to Life & Style. “Ryan says he’s outnumbered at home, he’s trying to even the playing field, so a son would be great.”
With that said, there’s also a very good chance that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds might add even more children to their family in the future. After all, both Hollywood stars come from big families themselves. Lively has four other siblings while Reynolds’ parents had four kids. The source says that Lively, in particular, loves the idea of having a lot of children around.
So far Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have made no comments about their pregnancy, nor have they revealed their baby’s due date.
