Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have become first time parents! Congratulations are in order for the happy couple who have just welcomed into the world their first child.
The actor joked about baby names in October, saying, “On the plane over here I was trying to think of baby names. I don’t want a name that’s anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y. So I’m going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds…that’s if it’s a girl.”
He continued, “I’m just excited about having a buddy. For a lot of new dads, you tend to dwell on the mistakes you don’t want to make. I’m at that stage still where I’m focused primarily on being open and understanding and leaving a lot of room for error.”
Page Six reports:
The 27-year-old actress gave birth to their child near their home in Bedford, NY, just before the new year. Lively and Reynolds, 37, married in 2012.
The child arrived earlier than expected, but we’re told that mom and baby are both healthy and doing well.
Lively, who has looked stunning as an expectant mom, said in October that pregnancy was a dream come true for her.
Lively and Reynolds have yet to release the name of their new addition, but she has previously spoken about having a brood of babies. She revealed, “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.”
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are parents for the first time and it sounds like they couldn’t be happier. We absolutely cannot wait to see pictures of their new baby. Hopefully there will be a photo spread in this week’s issue of People magazine. What do you think they named their baby? Leave your best guesses in the comments section below.
