When a bunch of pictures hit the internet of Blake Lively looking a little swollen in the stomach area while reshooting scenes for The Shallows in Malibu yesterday, it could only mean one of two things. Either she’d treated herself to too much hand-made plantation-style huckleberry pie from the icebox the night before, or Ryan Reynolds had busted a BC nut into his wife’s business. Well, according to People, it’s the second one. A source confirms to People that Blake is pregnant with their second child. The source adds that both Blake and Ryan are “absolutely thrilled.” Blake and Ryan already have a one-year-old girl named James.
People reached out to Blake and Ryan’s people to see if they had anything to say about Blake’s baby situation, but they had no comment. I’m sure when the time is right, she’ll announce it in her own way. What way that is, I have no idea. Blake announced her first pregnancy by posting a filtered-to-hell-and-back picture of her baby bump on her lifestyle website, Preserve.us. But the corpse of Preserve.us was buried in the website graveyard back in September, so I don’t know what she’ll do this time. Maybe she’s working on an old-timey pregnancy announcement iPhone app called Over Yonder Moon that sends everyone in your contacts a sepia-toned sonogram picture.
This would usually be where I’d start speculating what kind of historic-sounding name Blake will give her new baby. But since I can’t do any better than Kelly Clarkson today, I’m going to guess what kind of insufferable food cravings she’ll get this time around instead. The last time it was hand-churned pumpkin-flavored ice cream and small-batch pickles. This time I’m going to say Ryan will be running out in the middle of the night for cold-brewed turmeric tonic and something that was baked in a stone hearth.
Here’s more of Blake doing reshoots for The Shallows. I do appreciate how Blake is wearing a robe tied around her waist that says both “There’s no baby in here” and “There is definitely a baby here.”
