Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are not expecting their third baby, despite a tabloid wrongly reporting the actress is pregnant. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. We’re told the spouses don’t have another child on the way.

An alleged “insider” tells OK! that Lively “is in her first trimester,” but she and Reynolds have “only told close friends and family.” This immediately begs the question: who among their close friends and family would leak this information to a tabloid? The likely answer: nobody.

Still, the outlet’s questionable source adds, “They had talked about having more kids but didn’t have a plan, so this is surely a shocking but very welcome development.” The seemingly made-up insider goes on to say that Lively broke the baby news to her husband by “posing inside the doorway in her ‘pregnancy’ sweater, a favorite knit dress that she wore throughout her other pregnancies.”

The suspicious source concludes, in oddly unnatural language, “Blake has already told him he’s becoming Head Babysitter in their household as soon as the baby arrives. She’s ready to catch a few z’s!” Gossip Cop, however, has learned none of this is true.

A source close to the couple tells us on the condition of anonymity that they don’t have another baby on the way. Reynolds and Lively have both expressed interest in expanding their family, so it seems likely they’ll have another kid at some point, but the spouses aren’t expecting a third child at this time. For whatever reason, the tabloids seems very eager to impregnate female celebrities, but Lively isn’t currently pregnant.

Also, Lively resumes filming the spy thriller The Rhythm Section in June. Production on the film was suspended earlier this year after the actress sustained a hand injury while shooting, and she probably couldn’t continue filming the physically-demanding action movie if she were pregnant.

Meanwhile, the New York Post recently reported that Reynolds and Lively are planning for more kids, but are holding off due to work commitments. “They may have to wait another year due to busy work schedules,” a source told the newspaper.

Additionally, OK! can’t seem to keep its stories straight when it comes to the status of the famous couple’s marriage. In March, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Reynolds and Lively were living separate lives and headed for a split. Tellingly, this latest phony article fails to mention how the spouses went from breaking up to having a baby.
