Blake Lively is not pregnant. Not yet, anyway.
According to a report in Life & Style, the 26-year-old actress and her 37-year-old "Green Lantern" co-star turned off-screen husband Ryan Reynolds are planning for a baby.
“They want to have a baby very soon,” an insider close to the “Gossip Girl” actress told the tabloid in its latest print issue. “She and Ryan would love to get pregnant by this year!”
Despite the pair’s busy careers, with Reynolds set to star in the superhero film “Deadpool” and Lively’s coming role in the drama “The Age of Adaline” alongside Harrison Ford, the tabloid is reporting that they can’t wait to settle down and start a family. “Blake loves her acting life but she’s also very content to stay at home and be a wife,” said an insider.

While the married duo of two years are not currently expecting, insiders say they haven’t been shy about wanting more than one offspring. “She wants a big family so she is definitely not just going to stop at one,” a source said of Lively. “I wouldn’t be surprised if they have at least three or four.”
News of the baby plans comes after multiple reports suggesting the duo was feuding over when to start a family. According to the latest report from ShowBizSpy.com, the twosome, who starred alongside one another in the 2011 superhero flick “Green Lantern,” “came to blows” in April over a disagreement about when to try for a baby.
“She says she’s too young and not ready for that step,” one insider said of the alleged fight.
In June, Star Magazine published claims that Reynolds was “getting impatient” waiting for Lively to agree to get pregnant. “Blake promised Ryan he’ll be a daddy by the time he’s 40,” a source told the tabloid, adding that he was "hell bent” on changing her mind. “He’s wanted to start a family for years,” added the insider.
Reynolds and Lively tied the knot at the historic Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, in September 2012. Photos of the intimate affair were published by Martha Stewart Weddings magazine in December.
