Proof That Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds Are The Best Parents

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds had their second child today. The news comes after months of unparalleled maternity style on Lively's part and a few very silly tweets from Reynolds. Though they have yet to announce the child's sex or his/her name, there is one thing we know for sure: this kid has got it made.

Reynolds and Lively are important for a number of reasons. Lively starred the cinematic classic that is Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Reynolds once took a picture with Taylor Swift. Individually, they are Hollywood powerhouses — but together, they're downright unbelievable.

They're cute, funny, obsessed with food, good-looking, AND talented. If we didn't love them so much, we'd hate them.
