Blake Lively (35) and ryan reynolds (46), one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples, usually keeps a low media profile. In turn, they strive to be original and entertaining when it comes to announcing important news on their social networks.
This Sunday, in full Super Bowl broadcast, they again appealed to the enigmatic post to signal the birth of their fourth child. “Puppy Bowl Sunday 2023. Been busy,” she wrote on her Instagram of hers along with several photos.
In the first, you can see the protagonist of gossip Girl with her husband, the star of dead Pool, posing with Reynolds’ mother, Tammy. Lively was known to be in the latter part of his pregnancy. And as can be seen in the photo, it is clear that the baby has already been born.
What they haven’t announced yet is when, but everything points to it being several days ago. They also did not reveal the sex of the newborn. The couple’s secret is not uncommon: after more than ten years of marriage, they have always protected the identity of their three daughters and their privacy.
Sunday’s post included several images of the dishes Lively cooked to watch the NFL championship game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles with family.

“But she’s amazing!”, “She has four kids and is that it?”, “It makes having a baby look easy”, “I’m lucky to have such good genetics”, “I’m sure she stayed fit during her pregnancy” , were other comments.
An anti-paparazzi family
The newest member of the Reynolds-Lively family joins her three older sisters: James, 7; Inez, 6, and Betty, 3. Fans first learned that Lively was pregnant with her again when she flashed her baby bump at a conference in New York City in September of last year.
Soon after, the Californian actress took to her social media to share a series of photos of her pregnancy with the world to fight the paparazzi who were trying to take a picture of her at home.
“Here are pics of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside the house to take pictures of me will leave me alone,” she wrote on Instagram.
“They scare me and my daughters. Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to block accounts and posts that share photos of children. They have all the power against them. And thanks to the media who they have a ‘childless policy’. You all make a difference,” she added.
For his part, in a recent television interview, Reynolds revealed that he never wants to know the sex of their babies before they are born. “I’m an expert at having girls, so that’s what I expect,” she said, “but I’m prepared for whatever happens.”
