Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Remember when actress/entrepreneur/lover of all things artisanal Blake Lively memorably told Marie Claire she wanted to "spit out a litter of kids" back in mid-2014? Well, it looks like she’s well on her way. According to Us Weekly, the star and her husband Ryan Reynolds will preserve (ha!) their enviable DNA in the form of a second child, meaning their 16-month-old daughter James will soon have a little brother or sister.

Neither Lively nor Reynolds has personally confirmed the news yet — but considering that Lively only announced her first pregnancy (in the form of a stunning photo shoot for her now-defunct site Preserve, RIP) once she had a very visible baby bump, this isn’t too surprising. We’ll be keeping an eye on the couple’s social feeds for updates — which we hope come sooner rather than later, so we can start daydreaming all about the fantastic maternity outfits to come (and preparing ourselves for even more dad jokes).
