After welcoming three girls, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds keep their fingers crossed over the arrival of a baby boy, as the 35-year-old actress announced she is expecting her fourth child. “They’re hoping for a boy this time,” an exclusive source told Us Weekly. “But, of course, they just want a healthy baby, regardless of gender.” The pregnant actress and Deadpool star, 45, “love being parents,” the insider says, noting that regardless of whether their fourth child is a boy or a girl, they are ready to expand their brood. Blake has never made a secret of loving large families, as she herself has 4 brothers and sisters. “The timing is perfect because all of their kids have come within two years of each other, so they’re trying to follow the pattern,” joked the source.
The joy after the great fright
The joy of the arrival of the fourth child had been preceded by a great fright for the two actors: a few weeks ago, in fact, the news came that the actor, after undergoing an examination for a bet, discovered the presence of an octopus at the colon that could have turned into a tumor. It was the actor himself who revealed it, once again underlining the importance of cancer prevention.
