Blake gave birth to the couple's second child on Friday

It was revealed in April that the pair was expecting their second child. The 29-year-old continually wowed with her maternity style, making her baby bump debut during the Cannes Film Festival in May.

The Cafe Society star and Ryan, 39, have made it no secret that they would like to expand their family. In June, during an appearance on the Today show, the actress joked, "I'm one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we're officially breeders."

Likewise, Ryan told Details magazine earlier this year, "We'd love to have a big family. We both come from big families – my parents did four, Blake's did five." He added, "A lot of people say it's crazy, but we'll only know when we're there, you know?"

Blake and Ryan already share daughter, James

In August, Blake celebrated her baby's impending arrival with a private baby shower at the Bedford Post Inn in New York. The actress' close pal Taylor Swift was in attendance for the celebration at the Westchester County retreat. According to Page Six, the 1989 singer was heading to the hospital on Friday, September 30, to visit Blake and Ryan's newborn.

The pair have raised their daughter away from L.A., with Blake telling Marie Claire that they would like to keep their children's lives private.

"My husband and I chose a profession and a side effect of that is your personal life is public. Our child hasn't had the opportunity to choose whether or not she wants her personal life to be public or not," she said.

"So in order to give her as much normality as possible, we want her to have a childhood like we had. So we can't really throw her into the lion's den that is LA, not that we really want to."
