And a baby makes four!

People and Us Weekly report that Blake Lively is expecting her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds. A source tells E! News, "They are very excited. Blake always wanted two or three kids." 

The actress was spotted filming reshoots for The Shallows in Malibu earlier this week, and appeared to be covering up her stomach area with an oversized robe on the beach. The 28-year-old gave birth to her first child, a daughter named James, on December 16, 2014, however, the news of the little one's arrival wasn't revealed until the following month.

"If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would," Blake told a recent issue of Marie Claire while Reynolds echoed similar sentiments in an interview with Details magazine. 

"We'd love to have a big family. We both come from big families—my parents did four, Blake's did five. A lot of people say it's crazy, but we'll only know when we're there, you know?" the actor dished. "We'll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think."

Lively's rep had no comment.

Reynolds also opened up to E! News about adjusting to fatherhood, saying, "There have been times where I woke up, literally had no idea I had been walking for five minutes, but you love it. You wake up in the middle of the night, you got a big stupid smile on your face. I was telling someone else that. Anything else that woke you up every 45 minutes, you'd kill it. But when it's a baby, it's the best thing that ever happened to you."

Lively and Reynolds tied the knot in a secret ceremony at the Boone Hall Plantation in September 2012 after less than a year of dating.
