Ryan Reynolds has shared the first image of his third child with Blake Lively after secretly welcoming the bundle of joy two months ago.

The 42-year-old actor shared the sweet family snap featuring his 32-year-old actress on Twitter Wednesday along with a message about climate control in his native Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Ryan also seemingly revealed the gender of the bouncing bundle of joy in his caption.

He wrote: 'I love B.C. [Canadian flag emoji] I want my daughters to experience the same natural playground I grew up in. On Oct. 21, the candidate you vote for will SHAPE CLIMATE POLICY. 

'I’m proud of the climate progress made the last 4 years. Click http://Elections.ca for voting info. #Capilano.'

This comes weeks after it was said that the child is 'about two months old' according to an insider for Us Weekly earlier this month. 

No doubt the parents were in a celebratory mood as Ryan took to his Instagram Story to share an adorable selfie of the couple on a rare date night together a night before the news broke.

The two stars already have two daughters - James, 4, and Inez, 2 - together.

DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for both Reynolds and Lively.

Blake broke the pregnancy news back in May as she showed off her baby bump at the Detective Pikachu premiere in Hollywood after also keeping it a secret.

She obviously loves being a parent as she told Allure in 2012: 'I’ve always wanted a big family. Oh, I’d love 30 [children] if I could.'

And in 2017, she spoke to PEOPLE about her parenting style, saying: 'I think it’s hard to slap labels on any parents because it’s just so tricky. 

'It’s like every moment you’re figuring out what the heck you’re doing. You think, "Ooh, should I be more strict, or should I be more I don’t know, emotional?" Or whatever it is. 

'If anybody knows how to be a parent, I feel like grandparents really know how to be parents. But parents, you just figure it out as you go. So, I wouldn’t put a label on it.'

She also joked about how sleep was no longer an option for her. 

The actress said: '[Inez] was not sleeping through the night because she was a baby. And then she finally started sleeping through the night, because she was old enough, then my older daughter, James, decided that she doesn’t sleep through the night anymore.'

She told Marie Clare in 2016 that it is important for her to raise her children out of the spotlight. 

The actress said: 'Ryan [Reynolds] had a nice, normal upbringing, and we want our kids to have the same normal life that we had. We don’t ever want to rob them of what we had because then we’d feel really selfish.'  

The happy couple have been married since 2012 after first meeting on set of the Green Lantern in 2011.  

In September last year, Blake told the Independent.ie that Ireland could soon become her 'second home' should her upcoming flick The Rhythm Section be well received.

The blonde beauty moved to Dublin to film the Reed Morano-directed flick, which also stars Jude Law.

She shared: 'If everybody goes and sees The Rhythm Section in theatres in February, then we’ll have to do some more films in Ireland. There’s about five books so Ireland will be our second home. Dublin will be my second home.'

While living in the country, it appeared the homemaker fell in love with Irish food and fashion retailer, Avoca and described it as 'heaven'.

She said: 'Oh my god can we talk about Avoca, have you guys been to Avoca? You have to go to Ireland just to go to Avoca, it's just heaven.

'How it's described in the bible is inaccurate, heaven is what Avoca is… it's just hand weavers and amazing pastries and it's just heaven. Everybody's gonna be like "she's disgracing the bible" - I was joking world.'
