The 31-year-old actress actress surprised everyone when she debuted her burgeoning baby bump at her husband Ryan Reynolds' Pokémon: Detective Pikachu movie premiere in New York on Thursday. Wearing a body-hugging canary yellow gown, the former Gossip Girl's bump was in full display as she posed for cameras, making her baby news loud and clear.
The expectant parents were all smiles and looked absolutely stunning as they cuddled up on the red carpet. This will be Lively and Reynolds' third child. The gorgeous twosome is already parents to two daughters, James, 4, and Inez, 2.
The couple has maintained their daughter out of the public eye. However, people got a glimpse of the adorable pair when they attended Reynolds' Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony in 2016.
Earlier this week while promoting his movie, Reynolds shared how his eldest daughter was so excited about his Pokemon movie role.
"My daughter James is losing her mind over it," he shared during an appearance on Good Morning America. "She's never been interested in a movie I've done ever."
Though his youngest daughter isn't too interested in the flick just yet, Reynolds can't wait to see how she responds to it.
ET's Nischelle Turner also recently caught up with Reynolds and he joked that he only took the role after getting James' permission. "She's kinda the arbiter of everything I do, really," Reynolds quipped. "I get permission slips."
As for whether James will be getting the paycheck for encouraging him to take the role, Reynolds admitted, "I think she gets the check for most things."
James' approval for her dad's new role came after she saw a mockup of the film with Reynolds' voice as Pikachu.
"She made us watch it a hundred times in a row. So I was kind of in, even if the script was literally made of old spit, I would have been like, 'Yup, I'm doing it. I'm in,'" he said. "I need more of that validation from my child."
