Blake Lively admits three-year-old daughter Inez was 'not so' into her baby sister at first

Blake Lively has admitted her three-year-old daughter Inez was initially "not so" into her baby sister.

The 32-year-old actress and her husband, Ryan Reynolds,  welcomed their third child - another baby girl - late last year. The couple are already parents to three-year-old Inez and five-year-old James.


And during an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, the Rhythm Section actress was asked how her eldest daughters feel about the latest addition to the family.

“I sure did [have another baby]," she began, when asked about her youngest daughter. "I have so many children! Yeah, it’s a bit of a tough adjustment in our house, but it’s good. I have two other daughters so my oldest is very into the baby, but my middle child not so much."

"We're thinking of keeping her," the actress joked.

Fallon asked her about whether Inez plays with her youngest sister - and how James feels about it all.


“[Inez] sort of like pretends to play with her so like in the beginning, our oldest is loving on her, and she’s like very maternal and then our middle daughter is just like, [she] keeps away from her," Lively recalled.

"And then I said to her, I said, ‘you know, you’re going to teach her everything she knows. You get to teach her about cities and the sky and flowers and Santa Claus and Mickey Mouse, anything you want.’

"And she goes, ‘oh, I didn’t love you, but now I do.’ And I’m like, oh my god, are you speaking like Jennifer Aniston in Friends? Just like ‘cute little thing’.”


Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds announced that they were expecting their third child in May 2019, as they walked the yellow carpet at the Pokémon: Detective Pikachu premiere.

Reynolds confirmed the little one's arrival - and the gender of the baby - with a sweet post in October last year.
