Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are now parents of three...and have been quietly for weeks. Lively gave birth to the couple's third child earlier this summer, Us Weekly reports. (People also confirmed Lively had her baby.) A source told the outlet that the baby is “about 2 months old.” Details on gender and name have not come out yet, nor has the couple personally confirmed the birth. The two did share a photograph of themselves out on a date last night though. Sneaky, sneaky.

The couple already has two daughters, James, 4, and Inez, 2.

Lively kept a pretty minimal social media presence during her pregnancy. The actress didn't announce the news until she attended the premiere of Reynolds' film Detective Pikachu visibly pregnant in May. "PokeMOM.... Out now," she captioned her Instagram from the premiere.

Reynolds did share a few more candid photos of his wife from her pregnancies on his Instagram as his birthday tribute to her in August. "Happy Birthday, @blakelively," he wrote.

People reported shortly after news came out about Lively's third pregnancy that she and her husband were thrilled to expand their family again. "They are so happy and excited about having another baby," the source said. "They really are the most in-love and in-tune couple, and very hands-on parents. They’d have a dozen kids if they could."

And in 2016, Lively herself hinted the two wanted a big family, joking, “I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders. You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children.”

Lively told Marie Claire around the same time that she and her husband are trying to raise their children up as normally as possible. "Ryan had a nice, normal upbringing, and we want our kids to have the same normal life that we had," Lively said. "We don't ever want to rob them of what we had, because we'd feel really selfish."
