Why Blake Lively Had to Publicly Clear Up Confusion About Who Fathered Her Four Kids

Spotted: Blake Lively in the midst of a rumor. Not unusual for celebrities, but this time, the Gossip Girl alum accidentally started the gossip herself! Lively recently took to Instagram to publicly clear up confusion about who the father of her four kids is (we thought it was her husband, Ryan Reynolds!), and we can’t stop laughing at the misunderstanding.

It all started with a sexy red swimsuit picture, a la Wendy Peffercorn from The Sandlot. She has a red bikini, matching high waisted bottoms, red fingernails, and red heart-shaped sunglasses that she is adjusting with one hand. Her other hand is on her hip, and she’s wrapped in a yellow-and-white striped towel. She is stunning!

“K now im gonna draw it with AI…” the It Ends With Us star jokingly wrote in the caption. “😍🍼 🍼Uncanny. 📸: @guyaroch.”

People were drooling over this picture (!!), and one person commented, “How have you had 4 kids??? 🔥🔥🔥” We’re wondering the same thing — her abs are front and center in this photo, which is seriously impressive!

In an effort to acknowledge her privilege, she responded to the commenter to give her personal trainer some credit.  She tagged Don Saladino, then quickly realized that could be misconstrued as he is the reason she has four kids, not that he’s the reason she is so fit now.

“@donsaladino Wait. No. That’s not how. He’s not the father,” Lively wrote in a comment.  “He’s just the one who helps me fit into (some of) my clothes again after.”
