1 October 2016 / 7 months 3 weeks ago

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have welcomed their second child as Blake gives birth in New York.

The 29-year-old actress has given birth to her second child with the 'Deadpool' actor, though as of yet the gender and the name of their new addition has yet to be revealed. 

A source told E! News online: "They are so excited."

The newest addition to Ryan and Blake's family joins their 22-month-old baby girl James.

According to New York Post's Page Six column, the baby was born at a Manhattan hospital. The publication also reports that musician Taylor Swift was present at the hospital to welcome the newborn on Friday (30.09.16).

The news comes after the 'Café Society' actress recently complained that being pregnant in New York was horrible, especially during the hot summer months.

She said: "It should be illegal to be pregnant in New York in July...I swear, I'm going to make my water break just so I can cool down." 

And 39-year-old Ryan hasn't ruled out the idea of more children in the future, as he previously said the pair would "love to have a big family".

He said: "We'd love to have a big family. We both come from big families--my parents did four, Blake's did five. A lot of people say it's crazy, but we'll only know when we're there, you know?"

The 'Green Lantern' star also hinted at his desire for a bigger family when he previously called parenting "the best thing" that could possibly have happened to him.

He said: "There's nothing on earth more grounding than having a baby. It's the best thing that could ever happen to someone."
