Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds delighted fans with their first public appearance as a family-of-six on Saturday, as they visited Wrexham Stadium.

The Hollywood couple posed for several photos with their four children - marking their newborn child's first ever public appearance.

What's more, the notoriously private couple made sure not to give anything away when it came to revealing their baby's gender or name.

It looked like a great time was had by all, as Blake and Ryan took it in turns to hold their baby, while daughters James, eight, Betty, six, and Inez, three, posed in front of their famous parents.

Having his family on the grounds at Wrexham also proved to be Ryan's lucky charm too. His team were playing York in the Vanarama National League, and went on to defeat their rivals 3-0.

It's likely that the family will be seen again today, as Wrexham AFC Women will be playing against Connah's Quay on Sunday.

Ryan showed his support for the team ahead of the match by sharing a heartfelt message on Instagram. It read: "This Sunday, the @wrexhamafcwomen take the field at the Racecourse Ground. These women have been astonishing all season. Let’s fill the stands with the spirit of ‘78 and belt it out for these heroes… they’ve given their last drop of blood to the town and community all year… See ya there."

While this was most of Ryan's family's first time in Wrexham, his eight-year-old daughter James previously joined her dad during a visit to the stadium earlier in the year. He took his first trip to Wrexham in 2022, having not been able to come along sooner due to the pandemic restrictions.

While his family couldn't make it on the first occasion, they did feature in a cameo on the FX series Welcome to Wrexham.

In an episode that aired in September, Ryan was seen receiving a FaceTime call from his wife and daughters. In the clip, he said: "Gotta answer this,” and one of his daughters was heard saying: “Hi dad, look at you on the field!” Though the FaceTime call wasn't shown, Blake was heard rooting on her husband and saying: “Wow, that’s so cool.”

It was Blake that encouraged Ryan to purchase the football team, with the actor previously revealing that she's "actually more obsessed with Wrexham than I am."
