Blake Full of life subtly confirmed that she and Ryan Reynolds had welcomed their fourth child on Super Bowl Sunday when she shared a photograph of herself now not visibly pregnant. A source gave People an update on how the family of six is doing—although the source didn’t disclose baby no. 4’s birth date or sex.
The source did share that Full of life and Reynolds’ three older daughters—eight-year-old James, six-year-old Inez, and three-year-old Betty—are having fun with having a recent younger sibling.
“Blake and Ryan are amazing together,” the source said. “Ryan is an ideal dad. He may be very sweet to Blake. They’re very excited in regards to the recent baby. The older siblings have adjusted great.”
“Blake is the most effective mom,” the source added. “She is surrounded by friends that shower her with gifts for all the children. She and Ryan are a favourite couple. It is a goal for a lot of Blake’s friends to have what she has.”
Full of life and Reynolds have kept the small print of their family life mostly private. Full of life spoke about that call to Marie Claire in 2016, saying her “family, that is the thing that I feel most protective of and the thing that I feel is probably the most exposed once I feel exploited.”
With paparazzi, “I’d somewhat not should cope with it in any respect, but we knew the life-style we were moving into, and while it’s hard…it’s one other thing when it’s our child. She [James, the couple’s only child when the interview was conducted] did not have the chance to make a call about what she wants.”
“We wish our children to have the identical normal life that we had,” Full of life added. “We do not ever wish to rob them of what we had, because we would feel really selfish.”
