Now, here’s one way to start the new year—as new parents! Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively and our forever crush Ryan Reynolds welcomed their first child together this past December.
According to Page Six who exclusively confirmed the news, Lively gave birth during the holiday season near their home in Bedford, New York. The baby, whose gender and name is unknown, did come earlier than expected, but sources say this new mama and her little one are doing just fine (yay!).
Lively announced her pregnancy back in October in a gorgeous photo spread on her lifestyle site Preserve, and months following had us all in awe of her incredible maternity style. Meanwhile, Lively was just excited to begin this new chapter in her life. “Its something that I’ve always wanted ever since I was a little girl…I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I had come from a big family so it was always important to me. So it’s just the excitement of that finally being here,” Lively told US Weekly back in October.
Apart from that, no more details have been released. All that’s known for sure is this baby will most likely be the most gorgeous kid in NYC. When two biologically beautiful human beings come together like Lively and Reynolds have — you’ve pretty much won the genetic lottery. And the fact that you’re half Canadian, just adds to the awesome. Bravo Baby Lively-Reynolds, bravo.
Psssssst, but the good news doesn’t end there for Lively fans. Just between you and me, sources say that the 27-year-old actress will be launching Preserve Baby on her lifestyle site, a section dedicated to moms. Now don’t get too excited, nothing has been officially confirmed yet but we’ll keep our eye out. Baby steps guys, baby steps…
Cheers to the new year and to beginnings for the Lively-Reynolds family!
