E! News says sources have confirmed that the couple’s second baby has arrived, though no reports on the bundle of joy’s name or sex yet. According to Page Six, one of the most famous faces in the world made sure to be on hand to welcome the new arrival into the world: Taylor Swift.
Those sources said Swift was en route today to the hospital in Manhattan where Lively gave birth to visit the happy family. It’s not particularly surprising that Swift would be one of the first to see the new little one — she and Lively have been friends for a long time. Swift attended Lively’s New York baby shower last month. The guest list was kept super-private, but Swift’s name was one that leaked. Here’s hoping she had a song ready to welcome the newborn with — that would be a truly one-of-a-kind birth story.

Fans of Reynolds and Lively have known for some time now that they were expecting their second baby. Reynolds also opened up about the pregnancy late last month at an Eddie Bauer and American Forests for the One Tree Initiative event.
“My wife is just extraordinarily pregnant right now, so there’s not a lot of hiking in her immediate future — nor do I think it’s going to happen the second she gives birth, either,” he said, smiling. “I’m told there’s some recuperation that’s needed.” He also commiserated with his miserable wife, saying because of the heat, August is “the worst month on earth to be pregnant.”
Hey, at least all that misery results in a brand-new baby. Congrats, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds!
