Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are parents! The couple reportedly welcomed their first child, a baby girl, over the holidays, with Lively giving birth near their home in Bedford, New York shortly before the New Year.

According to the New York Post, Lively and Reynolds’ baby arrived earlier than expected, but everyone is said to be healthy and doing well. Gossip Cop has reached out for additional details.

Lively announced her pregnancy news back in October by posting a picture of her baby bump on her lifestyle website Preserve. She and Reynolds subsequently made red carpet appearances fashionably showing off her pregnant body.

Reynolds talked about baby names he’d consider while receiving his star on the Canadian Walk of Fame days after the pregnancy news broke. “I don’t want a name that’s anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y,” he said, before jokingly revealing that he’d settled on “Excalibur Anaconda” or “Bruce Jenner.”

Lively and Reynolds quietly married in September 2012. In a 2013 Details interview, he noted that the couple would “love to have a big family.” “We both come from big families — my parents did four, Blake’s did five,” said Reynolds at the time, going on to explains, “A lot of people say it’s crazy, but we’ll only know when we’re there, you know? We’ll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think.” Congrats to the couple on starting their family!
