Media outlets on Monday reported that Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds welcomed their first child just before the new year.

But the private couple has not announced the birth yet, so the baby’s gender is still unknown.

The New York Post’s Page Six was the first with the news, reporting that the baby arrived earlier than expected over the holidays, but that mother and child are both doing well.

The 27-year-old “Gossip Girl” actress reportedly gave birth somewhere near the couple’s home in Bedford, N.Y.

She and Reynolds, 37, were married in a secret ceremony in September 2012.

“I don’t want a name that’s anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y,” Reynolds said in October. “So I’m going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds … that’s if it’s a girl.”

He was joking, right?
