Few other details, including the baby's name or sex, have been revealed, but the couple have been known to wait a few months to spill any news about their kids. Reynolds revealed that his first daughter's name was James on the Today show three months after she was born. And Us Weekly confirmed the name of their second daughter, three-year-old Inez, in December 2016, also three months after her birth.
While neither Lively nor Reynolds have personally confirmed the arrival of their newest little one, the duo were spotted on a dinner date at NYC's Take Room on Friday, the same day reports of their baby's birth just happened to break. The actor even shared a selfie from their night out in which a blurry Blake, wearing a black pinstriped top and a gold necklace, looks at the camera in shock, while her husband grins happily. Lively reposted the pic, shouting out jewelry brand Marla Aaron and adding a hot dog emoji, to boot.
Fittingly, Lively's most recent pregnancy announcement also came as a shock to fans. In May the actress stepped out at the premiere of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, sporting a baby bump. She confirmed the news with a cheeky Instagram post, captioning a carousel of photos, "PokeMOM.... Out now."
The famous pair—who have been married since 2012—rarely make public appearances with their children, but in late May a still-pregnant Lively was caught by paparazzi bringing their daughters to visit Reynolds on the set of his new film Free Guy. And in 2016, James and Inez made a truly adorable showing at their dad's Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.
Despite keeping details of their family life private, both Likely and Reynolds have spoken out several times about how much their children mean to them.
In 2016 the actress told Marie Claire, "All my eggs are in one basket, and that’s my family. That’s where my heart is," she said, adding, "That’s where my everything is. That’s the thing that I feel most protective of and the thing that I feel is the most exposed when I feel exploited."
And in 2018 Reynolds spoke with Ellen DeGeneres about the ups and downs of fatherhood.
"I love it," he shared. "It’s really kind of made me a better person, I think. I sort of miss being horrible. It’s hard. It’s always a challenge, two kids. I think of blinking right now as tiny little breaks all day, but it’s the dream. It’s the best, they’re my buddies. I love it."
