Forget the Super Bowl...Blake Lively Subtly Reveals She and Ryan Reynolds Welcomed 4th Child

While we were all glued to our screens for Super Bowl LVII, Blake Lively, 35, decided to drop some major news on Instagram. Turns out that she and her hubby, Ryan Reynolds, 46, secretly welcomed their fourth child.

Right as the Big Game began, Lively shared a slideshow to Instagram where her baby bump is visibly gone, and she subtly revealed the news in her caption, where she wrote, “Puppy Bowl Sunday 2023...been busy.”

The first photo showed Lively, Reynolds and Reynolds's mother, Tammy, all standing together, while the following three photos showed the yummy dishes they were enjoying for Super Bowl Sunday.

While Lively tried to be sneaky with her caption, fans immediately recognized that her baby bump had vanished. One user wrote, “Did I miss something. Where is the baby bump?” And another wrote, “When you buried the lead that you had your baby. Honestly well done.”

Lively first revealed that they were expecting their fourth child back in September 2022, when she attended the Forbes Power Women's Summit and said, “I just like to create—whether that's baking or storytelling or businesses or humans, I just really like creating.”

This new baby (whose name has not yet been revealed) joins the pair's three daughters—James, 8, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3.

What a great way to announce your baby's arrival to the world, Blake. Congrats to the family!
