Congratulations are in order for both Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds as the two have welcomed a baby girl into the world just before the new year!

The baby seems to have arrived earlier than expected as the former “Gossip Girl” star announced her pregnancy in November last year through her website, Preserve.

Fortunately, a source told Daily Mail that both Lively and the baby are healthy and they are currently resting with Lively’s parents at their home in Bedford, New York.


So far, sources have only confirmed that the new parent has just welcomed a baby girl but stated that the rumoured baby name that was circulating online is fake.

The rumour regarding their baby’s name began circulating on the interweb when a Twitter user who claims to work at Westchester Medical Centre, accidentally let slip that Blake Lively gave birth to a baby girl called Violet. The tweet was later deleted and the username can no longer be found on Twitter.

If the rumour is true, their daughter shares the same name as Ben Affleck’s and Jennifer Garner’s daughter!

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively married in 2012 and the baby girl is their first child together. According to Daily Mail, Lively said that being a mother is something she always to be since she was young:

It’s 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.

She also talked about her husband and said: “He’s always good to me. That’s like a jerky thing to say because you want to be able to complain about your husband and be that person, but he takes pretty good care of me.”

Lively has been documenting her pregnancy on her website and Instagram, showing off pictures of her baby bump.


Aww, we are so happy for them. Congrats, Blake and Ryan!

We can’t wait to see the picture of their beautiful baby 😀
