Ryan Reynolds Slips Up As He Refers to ‘Daughter’ in Tweet
Ryan Reynolds appears to have revealed he and wife Blake Lively have had a second daughter.
The 39-year-old actor and his former Gossip Girl star spouse welcomed the baby at a hospital in Manhattan in September.
Since then, Reynolds and Lively have remained quiet on details about their new arrival, but the Deadpool actor seemed to have slipped up in a message posted on his Twitter page on Friday.
“The mobile above my daughter’s crib is just a whole bunch of NuvaRings (birth control method). So she remembers how lucky she is,” Reynolds tweeted.

Fans were quick to respond, with many taking the tweet as a confirmation of the baby’s gender.
It’s not the first time a Hollywood star has appeared to accidentally reveal their child’s sex. During an appearance on the Today show earlier this month, Ashton Kutcher dropped the news that wife Mila Kunis is expecting a baby boy.
“She points to Mila and she’s like, ‘baby brother’ when she points to the belly, and then she points to dad and she goes, ‘beer,’ ” he said. “So I think she gets there’s something in the belly, but I don’t quite think that she knows that it’s not going to be a plastic doll yet.”
Reynolds and Lively are also parents to daughter James, who will turn two in December.
The news of Lively’s pregnancy first surfaced in April, and she debuted her growing baby bump at the world premiere of her Woody Allen film Café Society at the Cannes Film Festival in France in May.
Lively and Reynolds have made no secret of their desire to have a big family.
“I’m one of five kids; my husband’s one of four,” Lively explained during an interview on Today in June, before joking, “We’re officially breeders! You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children.”
The couple wed in 2012.
