The identity of Reynolds and Lively's youngest offspring continues to remain unknown more than one year after the Gossip Girl actress gave birth to the baby in February 2023.

At the time, Reynolds confirmed he and the Shallows actress were "very excited" about welcoming their newborn, noting: "Look, we wouldn’t do this four times if we didn’t love it."
