What you are looking at is a picture of Blake Lively premiering her surprise baby tummy at the premiere of Ryan Reynolds’ film Detective Pikachu back in May. And it kind of looks like Blake was telling Ryan a secret. It definitely wasn’t “That denim vest is hideous,” because that’s no secret. There is a chance the secret was “I’m not going to tell anyone when this baby pops out.” Because it’s October, and Us Weekly is saying Blake had her third child earlier this summer.
A source tells Us Weekly that Blake and Ryan’s third kid made their way into the world about two months ago, so their birthday is roughly sometime in August.
Blake and Ryan’s first daughter James was born in 2014 and they kept the details of her name and birth secret for a while. Their second daughter Inez was born in 2016, and they also waited a while to reveal the details of her birth. Blake and Ryan didn’t have much to say about their third baby in May when Blake showed up on the Pikachu red carpet looking pregnant. She later posted a few pictures to her Instagram with the caption “PokeMOM…out now.”
Neither have confirmed the news of their latest child. Although Ryan did maybe drop a hint that he had reason to be missing sleep back in September. According to the caption of a post promoting his gin company, he joked that the bags under his eyes were thanks to the “two little assholes who refused to go to bed the night before.” Well, now we know he might have been withholding just a tiny bit of information, and that his sleep deprivation might have been caused by three kids.

LOVE this @AviationGin shoot with the legendary @guyaroch. Hair by @serafinosays and styling by @joseph.episcopo. Bags under my eyes by two thankless assholes who refused to go to bed the night before, despite the fact I read them Winnie the Pooh and nearly half of Stephen King’s The Shining.
Blake or Ryan will most likely casually drop the details of their third kid during some promotional tour for an upcoming movie, or perhaps a sponsored gin ad on Instagram. I just hope Ryan doesn’t try to incorporate it into the buzz about his upcoming Clue movie, like by asking people to guess what kind of fluids splashed on which of his body parts while he watched Blake delivered their kid. I don’t need to solve that crime.
