This holiday season, Hollywood power couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got a special visit with the real-life power couple: Santa and Mrs. Claus! The couple was dressed in festive holiday attire, ready to celebrate the season of giving with their three children—and soon-to-be fourth child!
Reynolds shared a photo of the spirited couples on Instagram telling his fans that they met Santa and Mrs. Claus on the Polar Express, naturally, and shared that Mrs. Claus — who he noted was named Jessica, — lived up to his every expectation. “She was everything I’d always dreamed about since I was a kid,” he said. “She smelled like cinnamon buns and sangria.”
Ryan was donned in a blue beanie and gray Pelé sweatshirt for their holiday fun while his wife, Blake looked more festive in a pair of Elf-print holiday pajamas. The actress, who is pregnant with their fourth child, wore a cream-colored robe over her holiday loungewear with the belt tied loosely above her baby bump.
Since marrying in 2012, the couple has had three adorable daughters: James, 7, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3. The couple is now expecting their fourth baby.
Though Lively and Reynolds prefer to keep their kids out of the spotlight and off of social media, they do discuss their family life in interviews.
At the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, Reynolds joked about his daughters saying, “I’m a parent of three girls. They’re wild. I think they have rabies sometimes.”
Over the years, Reynolds has often said that he “loves being a girl dad” and in an interview for Access, he said, “I have three daughters, which I never in a million years would imagine. I come from all boys. I have three older brothers. So for me to have three daughters has been such a ride and I love every second of it.”
Lively has also discussed her children and said that having kids has made her feel more comfortable in her own skin.
In an interview with Forbes, she said, “I never felt more myself or at ease in my own body or more confident. Not to say that there aren’t a bevy of insecurities coming at me a million times a day, but I just feel incredibly settled.”
While both Reynolds and Lively are actors, they both agree that they won’t let their kids become childhood actors — at least not until they’re older. “Putting a kid in a business like this, it’s generally not about the kid,” Reynolds told PEOPLE. “It’s usually about the parents.”
“When they’re older, they can do whatever the hell they want,” he continued. “I’m excited for that.”
He said, “Our job is to foster as much interest in as many different things as possible at this point.”
