Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are one of the most famous celebrity couples in Hollywood, and yet we rarely hear about what they're up to in their day-to-day lives.

While we know they just welcomed their second child into the world, we don't know the baby's name or sex just yet...and that's exactly how they want it.

E! News has exclusively learned about where the celeb couple has been nesting with their two little ones, including 2-year-old James, and the quaint life they've been living in a small town named Pound Ridge in Upstate New York.

We spoke to many people from the town who confirm the actress has been spotted out and about at some of her favorite places but has left her newborn at home. Even when store clerks that are familiar with the family ask about the name or the sex, the couple plays coy.

However, one insider confirmed that the actress appears to be doing quite well in the weeks following the baby's birth. "Blake looks great these days," the source said. "She hasn't lost all the baby weight yet, but it doesn't matter. She looks beautiful."

But baby news aside, the couple spends a lot of time at the local shops and grocery stores without their two kids.

An insider told us the pair visits the Inn at Pound Ridge "all the time" and just enjoyed a lunch date there without their kids about two weeks ago.

We're told Blake favors the grilled chicken paillard salad, while her hubby likes the burger. Reynolds will even sometimes come in alone and eat at the bar. The pair is always welcomed with open arms, and one restaurant regular described them as "really nice."

The stars also regular another local coffee and lunch shop where Lively has been spotted eating lunch or dinner with her sister, her mom, her assistant at various times. Lively has even been spotted with little James, but an insider tells us there's been "no sign" of the new baby.

She particularly enjoys the spot because they cater to her preference for gluten-free foods. "For example, when she has the avocado toast, they make it for her on gluten-free bread," the source explained.

The stars also have several gourmet food shops and grocery stores they frequent.

One shop specializes in gluten-free food which Lively loves. The pair are often seen buying crackers and some "sweet stuff" like homemade granola and graham crackers. The couple's nanny typically visits another store while shopping for the children and has been in a few times with James to buy "little kid food." 

Aside from their local food stops, Lively visits a clothing shop called Bubble and Tweet, a store for women and kids that specializes in soft, comfy clothes. We're told she shopped there several months back and bought a few things for herself.

Meanwhile, as we reported earlier, the actress and her hubby threw their baby shower at the Bedford Post Inn where Swift and Emily Blunt were spotted attending. Although John Krasinski wasn't there, another source told us he did pick Blunt up after it ended. Reynolds, on the other hand, was there and spent a lot of time on the inn's balcony "cracking people up with jokes."

"It was a lot of fun," the insider told us. The couple gave out pajamas as party favors, but they made sure nothing gave away any details about their baby. The insider explained that the décor was "festive but neutral," giving no hints as to whether they were going to have a boy or a girl.
