US actress Blake Lively gave birth, and speaking about having children she has said: "This is the happiest time in my life!"

Yesterday on 6 January, Blake finally became a mum as she and her husband Ryan Reynolds welcomed their first child together.

And even though she may have just had her first, the Gossip Girl star has revealed she hopes to have plenty more babies in the future.

In a recent interview, Blake told US mag People she has always wanted a big family.

Despite wanting to revel in her new arrival, it seems the new mum is already planning for baby number two, three and even four...

She said: "I do want to just enjoy this moment. But I also feel like my first child is going to be the oldest sibling to the next kid, and that may change with each and every year.

"You don't just raise your kids, your kids also raise each other. The things I learned from my brother Eric, he's influenced my life so much... I'm looking forward to how one baby influences the other, and to my family as a whole."

Speaking about motherhood, Blake added that she has always felt like a mum, saying she "can't believe" she now gets to experience actually being one.

Blake and her husband of two years Ryan married back in 2012.

Earlier this week, it was reported Blake had given birth to her and Ryan's first child together.

Notoriously private about their relationship, it's not surprising the A-list couple are still yet to confirm the news themselves. When it came to announcing Blake's pregnancy back in October, the pair chose to discreetly break their baby news by simply posting a picture of Blake and her bump on her website Preserve.

Since their little girl's arrival, more reports suggested Blake and Ryan have named their daughter Violet, after a now-deleted tweet from a hospital source said so.

However, like the birth, both parents are yet to reveal if this is true.

Blake and Ryan's baby joy comes over two years after they tied the knot back in September 2012. The pair met while both starring in the movie Green Lantern.
