The couple have yet to comment on the pregnancy news, but both have expressed their desire to have a big family. Speaking with Marie Claire in 2014, the former Gossip Girl revealed, "If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would."

Blake sparked pregnancy rumours when she was spotted trying to hide what appears to be a growing bump under a robe while filming reshoots for her upcoming movie The Shallows.

Most recently, her Deadpool star husband gushed over his wife at the MTV Movie Awards, where he walked away with the trophy for Best Comedic Performance. During his speech, the Canadian actor gave his wife a shout out, saying, "I want to thank my wife—everything I do is to make her laugh, especially the sex. Thank you,” he said.
