Blake Lively just dropped some major news during her latest public turns out the Gossip Girl star is pregnant with her fourth child!

While stopping by the Forbes Power Women's Summit, E!

This will be the fourth child that Lively shares with her 45-year-old husband, Ryan Reynolds. The pair have been married since 2012 and they are currently the parents to James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2.

At the summit, Lively was there to talk about her experience in the world of business, and a quote from the Simple Favor star was shared to the official Forbes Instagram account, where she said, “Especially when it's a startup, I think you always learn more from your failures than you do your successes.” However, while Lively was there to talk entrepreneurship, it was her baby news that stole the show.

In the past, Lively has shared her wisdom on being a mother, and joked, “Having a baby is just living in the constant unexpected. You never know when you're gonna get crapped on or when you're gonna get a big smile or when that smile immediately turns into hysterics.”

Meanwhile, Reynolds has said that Lively calls the shots when it comes to raising their three children. “Blake runs the show,” Reynolds told David Letterman during an interview on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman. “I would kind of really phone things in if it wasn't for her.”

In addition to raising three children, Lively and Reynolds have certainly been keeping busy. While the Gossip Girl actress has been doing heavy promotion of her non-alcoholic Betty Buzz mixers, Reynolds just saw the premiere of his new docuseries, Welcome to Wrexham.

Neither of the stars have posted about the news on their respective social media accounts yet, but we will be keeping our eyes peeled for any updates.
