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.

Now that James Lively is a big sister, we want to take a moment to celebrate the paragons of parenthood that are Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. How are they such great parents, you ask?

1. Blake is already a very cool aunt.

2. The two actively joke about their sex life.
Reynolds said about Lively at the MTV Movie Awards: "Everything I do is to make her laugh. Especially the sex."

3. They're big fans of butter.

Teachin' my baby cousin-- life is better with butter. I think she got the message.

She thinks that post-baby body expectations are "unfair."

I specifically said, "no tongue".
