Green Lantern actress Blake Lively announced via her website that she and husband Ryan Reynolds are expecting their first child. The news comes as a surprise to many since the couple has been rumored to have been marriage problems as of late and tales of divorce lawyer visits seemed to engulf fan sites.
Within a piece about “that special moment at the creation of family,” on her preserve blog. Lively congratulated “all the expecting mothers out there” before finishing the post with an image of her own bump, taken by her brother Eric.
“He’s going to be a great father and leader and patriarch – he’s so meant to be all of those things,” Lively told American Vogue of her actor husband earlier this year. “The fact that he lived so much before we got together, he’s the exact realised 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.”
Congrats to the happy couple! Hopefully, they can put any marriage issues they may have behind them for the sake of their child.
