On Thursday, September 15, Blake Full of life revealed she is expecting her fourth child with husband Ryan Reynolds by showing off her baby bump on the red carpet of the tenth annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit. In response to a source speaking with US Weekly, it’s an enormous relief that her pregnancy is out within the open.
“Blake is relieved that the key is out. She held it in until she couldn’t anymore!” the insider said. “She loves dressing up her baby bump and desired to make an announcement. She’s truly glowing.”
Full of life definitely was glowing in her short golden semi-sheer dress covered in sequins. She left her long blond hair down, pushed back with a headscarf, and wore an extended white scarf to match her high platform white heels.

The 35-year-old actress has three daughters, James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2. She and Reynolds began dating in 2011, and the actor recently announced a retirement from acting so he could spend more time at home together with his family as the women are growing up.
In October 2021, he told The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m just attempting to create a bit of bit more room for my family. You realize, you actually don’t get that point back.”
Though they discuss being parents, the couple tries to respect their kid’s privacy as much as possible. Full of life told Marie Claire way back in 2016 that she wanted her kids to have a “normal childhood.”
“My husband and I selected a occupation and a side effect of that’s your personal life is public,” she said. “Our child hasn’t had the chance to decide on whether or not she wants her personal life to be public or not. So so as to give her as much normality as possible, we wish her to have a childhood like we had. We don’t ever wish to rob them of what we had, because we’d feel really selfish.”
