Just a few days into the new year and popular actors Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have welcomed their first child into the world. The actual birth happened over the holidays, a little earlier than expected, but it seems everyone is doing just fine now.

The little baby, the sex of which has not been released at this time, was born in Bedford, New York just a few miles away from where the couple call home. It seems like only yesterday that young Blake Lively, 27, announced her pregnancy, and since the reveal the countdown has been on for baby number one for the gorgeous duo.

Reynolds is 37, and both parents have been very open about their excitement for the new addition to their family. “Its something that I’ve always wanted ever since I was a little girl,” Lively told US Weekly during her pregnancy. Adding, “I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I had come from a big family so it was always important to me. So it’s just the excitement of that finally being here.”

The couple have not officially announced the baby to the press, though the confirmation comes from numerous sources across multiple publications.
