Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds and American actress/model Blake Lively are reportedly hoping to expand their family. The couple who have two children together are thinking to adopt a baby.

A source told Hollywood Life: "Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are already talking about baby No. 3, but they're not planning on doing it the old fashioned way."

"They are seriously looking into adopting a baby! They haven't decided if they want to adopt from an impoverished country or domestically, but they love the idea of bringing a baby out of dire circumstances and spoiling them with love and opportunity," the insider added.

The couple, who have always stayed tight lipped about their relationship, started dating while filming the Green Lantern in 2011. The two got married in a private ceremony the following year.

Lively had talked about motherhood for the first time while gracing the cover of Allure magazine's May 2015 issue. She said: "I feel like I've figured out the most important thing to me and everything supports that."

"People are obsessed with beauty and youth and with looking and feeling young forever," she continued. "But look at a woman who is granted that: She's trapped, because it's tragic to be young forever."

"Having a child makes you realize that we pass on for a reason. You think, I have to go, because it makes room for you," Lively added.

Adding on, Lively revealed that breast-feeding has been "a full-time job."

"I'm, like, driving down the road, pumping," she said.
