Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds will soon be parents of four, and as early as now, their three kids are excited to meet their new sibling.

The couple's three daughters are over the moon upon learning about their mom's pregnancy, an unnamed insider exclusively told Us Weekly on Tuesday.

The source added that James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2, couldn't stop feeling Lively's growing belly because they are ecstatic to welcome the little one to their family.

"The kids can't wait and keep feeling [her] bump — it's so adorable," the insider said.

The 35-year-old "Gossip Girl" alum and the 45-year-old "Deadpool" are just as excited for baby No. 4.

"She and Ryan are both very happy and looking forward to welcoming baby No. 4," the source quipped.

While the family is in high spirits because of Lively's pregnancy, the actress has expressed her concern regarding the photographers waiting outside of their house to capture snaps of her baby bump.

Over the weekend, the "Shallows" star took to Instagram to upload a series of snaps featuring her large belly to give her fans a "real-life" look into her pregnancy journey and to call out the paparazzi gathered outside their home.

"Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a [unicorn] sighting will leave me alone. You freak me and my kids out," she captioned her post.

Lively continued, "Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications who share photos of my children. You have all the power against them."

Lively and Reynolds tied the knot in 2012. She revealed her pregnancy Thursday when she debuted her baby bump on the red carpet of the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women's Summit.

An anonymous tipster told People that no one saw that coming because even the actress' pals were stunned by the news.

"Even her friends were surprised that she was pregnant again. She kept it very quiet," the source told the outlet.
