Impossibly good-looking couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have welcomed baby #2, according to People magazine. But in true Blake and Ryan fashion, that's about all we know at this time! No details about the baby's gender, size, or name are available yet. And judging from how secretive the couple has been when it comes to their first daughter, James, 22 months, we probably won't find out much more anytime soon.

That leaves us to speculate about all of that stuff—especially the possibility of another unique, gender-neutral baby name to go along with big sister James. (Gary for a girl?! Just kidding.)

The truth is, Blake and Ryan seem like they're about the coolest people on earth (could we love Blake any more for admitting that she, too, has social media mom envy?!), and whatever name they pick for their new baby will no doubt wow us with its chicness. That being said, The Shallows star has said she just wants her kids to be normal, okay?

"I'd rather not have to deal with [paparazzi] at all," Lively previously told Marie Claire. "But we knew the lifestyle we were getting into, and while it's hard... it's another thing when it's our child. She didn't have the opportunity to make a decision about what she wants."

Right. And that's exactly the logic that will fiercely protect the stars' privacy in the early days, weeks and perhaps even months of their new baby's life.

So congrats, Blake and Ryan! Just don't keep us in the dark too long!
