A source has confirmed to People that actress Blake Lively and her husband, Ryan Reynolds, are expecting their second child.
“Blake is absolutely thrilled and so is Ryan,” according to the source. Another source who is close to Lively said that Lively may make her red carpet baby-bump debut at the upcoming Met Gala on May 2.
Lively sparked rumors of a possible pregnancy when she was photographed re-shooting scenes for her upcoming film, The Shallows. The mother-to-be tried her best to keep her budding baby bump hidden behind a robe and a surfboard.
The couple have been vocal about their desire to have a big family. Lively said, “I…feel like my first child is going to be the oldest sibling to the next kid, and that may change with each and every year. I’m looking forward to how one baby influences the other, and to my family as a whole, to every single chapter.”
Reynolds said that the exhaustion from life with a newborn baby took some time to get used to. He joked, “Our baby, in particular, is, we think, allergic to sleep.”
Despite the sleepless nights, Reynolds was elated to have a daughter.
Representatives for both actors have not commented on the pregnancy news.
