“I’m very excited,” he said. “We’d have to be. You know, you’d have to be a moron to do this four times if you didn’t like it. It’s gonna be nuts, but we’re very excited.”

Lively revealed her pregnancy in September 2022 on the red carpet for the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit. She also shared the announcement on Instagram in the hopes that “the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a (unicorn) sighting will leave me alone.”

She wrote that the paparazzi “freak me and my kids out,” and condemned media outlets and social media accounts that share nonconsensual photos of children.
