Blake has three daughters with her husband Ryan Reynolds.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds recently announced they were expecting their fourth child together.
The couple is already parents to three daughters, 7-year-old James, 5-year-old Inez, and 2-year-old Betty.
But they’re now hoping to welcome a baby boy into their family.
A source told US Weekly that Blake and Ryan really want to have a son.
“They are hoping for a boy this time around, but, of course, they just want a healthy baby, no matter the gender.
“They love being parents,” the source added.
“The timing is perfect because all of their kids are two years apart so they’re keeping with the pattern.”
Following her pregnancy announcement, the Gossip Girl star called out paparazzi who were waiting outside her home.
They were trying to take photos of the expectant mum, but she said it was freaking both her and her children out.
Alongside personal photos of her pregnancy, including one of her and Taylor Swift, Lively slammed the paparazzi for harassing her family.

“Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a sighting will leave me alone.”
“You freak me and my kids out. Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect.
“And for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications that share photos of children.”
“You have all the power against them. And thank you to the media who have a “No Kids Policy”. You all make all the difference.”
