Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds reportedly welcome first child

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds became parents in late December, according to reports out Monday

The Blake Lively-Ryan Reynolds baby has reportedly arrived.

The comely couple welcomed their first child near their Bedford, N.Y., home in December, according to Page Six. People and Us Weekly promptly chimed in with their confirmations soon after.

A rep for the couple did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and the baby's gender was not reported.

The "Gossip Girl" alum, 27, and "R.I.P.D" actor, 38, announced Lively's pregnancy back in October on the actress' lifestyle site, Preserve. The post temporarily crashed the fledgling site. Since then, the expectant mother has been spotted out and about sporting stylish maternity ensembles.

The duo met while filming 2011's comic-book flick "Green Lantern." Reynolds was married to actress Scarlett Johansson at the time, and Lively had been linked to her "Gossip Girl" costar Penn Badgley.

After Reynolds and Johansson split and in July 2011 finalized their divorce, he and Lively sparked up a romance. They wed in South Carolina in September 2012.

In the August 2014 issue of Vogue, the Gucci ambassador gushed about Reynolds being a dad.

"He's going to be a great father and leader and patriarch — he's so meant to be all of those things," Lively said. "The fact that he lived so much before we got together, he's the exact realized person that he should be. And so I get to share my life with the person he's become, and we get to grow from there."
