Baby joy for Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Blake Lively

After one of the most closely watched celebrity pregnancies ever, actress Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds have welcomed their first baby.

Page Six reports the 27-year-old gave birth to their child – rumoured to be a girl – near their home in Bedford, New York, just before the new year.

The baby arrived a little earlier than expected, with the due date not until later this month. But mum and bub are said to be doing well.

Always-stunning Lively made headlines for her fabulous maternity style while pregnant, with outfits she wore constantly selling out in stores and online. She announced her pregnancy in October with this beautiful photo taken by her brother, Eric.
