The actress Blake Lively is expecting her first child with actor husband Ryan Reynolds, she announced on Monday on her website, Preserve.
“With family on our mind, we looked to the origin of it all, to the women in our lives who are right there, at that special moment; at the creation of the family.”
The news comes just months after she talked about her plans to start a family.
“If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would.”
Lively and Reynolds married in September 2012 in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Shortly after they got married, she said she would love to have a bunch of kids.
“I’ve always wanted a big family. Oh, I’d love 30 [children] if I could.”
