Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively met in 2010 while on set, filming The Green Lantern. The two became public about their relationship after the movie's release and well, the rest is history.
The couple said their 'I do’s' on September 9th, 2012 at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, and are three kids in with a fourth on the way.
"I've always wanted a big family. Oh, I'd love 30 (children) if I could," Lively revealed in an interview.
The More The Merrier
In 2016 the Gossip Girl alum joked about her and husband being "breeders." “I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders. You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children," she laughed.
The two share three daughters so far, James, 7; Inez, 5; and Betty, 2. And, on September 15, the Lively revealed that they are expecting again while showing off her pregnant stomach at the Forbes Power Women's Summit, where she was honored.
Lively wore a semi-fitted mini dress covered in gold sequin with a long white scarf around her neck. It was very Serena Vanderwoodsen, if you ask us.
And although Lively and Reynolds allow America to gush over them [daily], they plan on giving their children a more private lifestyle.
Lively said to Marie Claire in 2016, “Ryan had a nice, normal upbringing, and we want our kids to have the same normal life that we had. We don't ever want to rob them of what we had, because we'd feel really selfish.”
The couple also values time with their children over anything. Reynolds told Jessi Hempel, Editor at Large for LinkedIn, "The biggest thing for me, and I know you have kids as well, is that I don't want to miss this time with my kids." He added in later on, "I want my kids to have a pretty normal schedule. For many years when my wife Blake would shoot a film, I would not shoot a film and I would be with the kids and vice versa. So we would sort of trade-off. We never really worked at the same time. But always we were away. So the kids were away too."
Reynolds explained that as the kids get older, their lifestyle becomes more challenging however, that won't stop him from being the present day that he enjoys being. "I love taking them to school in the morning, I love picking them up.," he added. "I love that I have the hours in between to focus on the things that I'm really passionate about like MNTN and Maximum Effort. It is a juggling act."
