Blake Lively, the star of "Gossip Girl," welcomed her fourth child with her husband, Ryan Reynolds. However, the couple kept the arrival of their child under wraps.

Since quietly welcoming her child, Lively has enjoyed the spring sun with her husband and the rest of the family. The actress shared pictures of her and the family at the beach and included one of her in a swimsuit.

As usual, Lively added a few fashion moments. She first showed off her neck stacked with different kinds of jewelry and some of her swimwear.

One of them was a patterned white and brown bikini bra paired with flared brown pants that matched with a brown, cream, and black pattern.

The second outfit by the pool was a full black swimsuit with a cut-out right at her belly. The actress showed off her long legs and let her blond hair down as she posed in the sun.

However, during the Superbowl, Lively shared a picture with her husband and wore blue jeans with a black vest, but what was shocking was her flat stomach.

The actress secretly gave birth to her fourth child and did not commemorate the moment on Instagram, which upset a few fans.

One fan said the least Lively could have done was share if it was a boy or girl, claiming that the actress was not as prestigious as she thought because even The Princess of Wales still treated her followers with "humility."

But what was even more intriguing was how amazing her body looked. Instagram users praised "The Gossip Girl's" body and asked her to share tips on getting her body in shape.

The Wedding Backlash

Lively and Reynolds are loved for being funny and making jokes about one another and are rarely involved in controversies. However, their 2012 wedding received a lot of criticism.

The two actors had their wedding ceremony at the Boone Hall Plantation in South Carolina. While Reynolds explained that they had chosen the venue because of its beauty, he admitted that he and his wife were unaware of its painful history.

The venue was a slave plantation featuring nine cabins built by enslaved bodies. Reynolds and his wife had not addressed the issue until the "The Deadpool" star raved about "The Black Panther" in 2018 on Twitter.

Immediately he was reminded of his plantation wedding, and the criticism eventually led to the couple publicly apologizing. The couple expressed their shame for their lack of education about the tragic slave history and its racial discrimination.

They went on to announce that they would be donating $200,000 to the NAACP legal defense fund following the death of George Flyod.

The joint statement ended with Reynolds and Lively saying they would continue to educate themselves about other people's lived experiences and pass down the knowledge to their children.

Due to the negativity surrounding their wedding, Reynolds revealed they had another ceremony at their home. He confessed that his shame almost led him to "shut down," but he and his wife decided to start fresh and navigate life with a more inquisitive mind.

Inside Blake and Ryan's Family

Although Lively and Reynolds do not mind making jokes about their relationship, they keep their children out of the limelight.

However, the jokes never stop. In one of his interviews, the "Free Guy" star said his three daughters were so wild that he sometimes thought they had rabies.

But aside from the jokes, the actor is proud to be a father to three daughters. He came from a family of all boys, so having girls has been a fulfilling learning experience.

Lively also loves motherhood; she confessed that being a mother has made her fall in love with her body. Though the insecurities tend to creep in, for the most part, the mother of four feels very confident in her body.

When raising their children, the two actors intend to equip their kids with as much information as possible but do not plan on introducing them to their industry until they are old enough to make their own choices.

The actor's oldest daughter is James Reynolds, born on December 16, 2014. She was named after Reynolds's father, who died shortly after her arrival.

"The Red Notice" star said the name "felt right," but he was happy that his father got to see James before he passed.

Their second daughter arrived on September 30, 2016, and she was named Inez Reynolds. Her mother was particular about the pronunciation and explained that people usually say it with an "s” when it's actually a "z."

Reynolds revealed that her middle daughter was not into fairies and princesses; instead, she had a bit of a "dark side to her." Inez is said to be interested in villains, and even in "The Beauty and the Beast," her favorite character is Gaston, remarked the father of four.

The third daughter arrived on October 4, 2019, and her name is Betty, a special name in Lively's family. The actress explained that her father's name was Earnest Brown Jr., but he dropped his last name for her mother's success.

Therefore, since his milestones or his daughter's were not celebrated under his name, Lively decided to do something unique and name her non-alcoholic spritzer brand, Betty Buzz.

The name Betty is memorable and meaningful because Earnerst's mother and his sister shared the name, and now her daughter gets to represent it in her generation.
