Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are parents… again! The actress gave birth to their second child. Gossip Cop is working on confirming the baby’s gender.

It was revealed in April that Lively was pregnant again when she sported a baby bump as she filmed reshoots for The Shallows. A trip to France followed in May, and the fashionable star showed off her growing belly in a number of stunning gowns at the Cannes Film Festival. That same month came a National Enquirer story that ridiculously claimed Lively was hoping a second baby would “save” her marriage to Reynolds.

But their marriage, of course, didn’t need any saving. In fact, Reynolds went on to help Lively promote The Shallows, despite a Star report falsely claiming otherwise. There was one funny, awkward moment in their relationship, though. Lively’s daughter, James, called Jimmy Fallon “dada.” Lively shared a home video on “The Tonight Show” in July, with the footage showing the toddler, who will turn 2 later this year, misidentifying a cardboard cut-out of the late-night host as her father.

Presumably, Reynolds was more amused then miffed. Regardless, he and Lively certainly have a lot to celebrate now. Gossip Cop congratulates the couple on their growing family!
