Earlier this month, a source exclusively told Us Weekly that the duo — who wed in 2012  — plan to stay close to Westchester, New York, before baby No. 3 arrives because Lively “has a really great support system there.” The insider added that the A Simple Favor actress “has several mom friends” in the area and “loves having them over for play dates.”

The couple also share daughters James, 4, and Inez, 2.

Before welcoming James in 2014, Lively spoke with Us about her desire to become a mother.

“It’s something that I’ve always wanted, ever since I was a little girl,” she told Us exclusively at the 2014 Golden Heart Awards. “I never knew what I wanted to do for a living, but I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I had come from a big family, so it was always important to me. So it’s just the excitement of that finally being here.”
