Blake Lively has given birth to her second child with Ryan Reynolds but is keeping mum on the baby's gender. 

Famously secretive about her private life, People magazine confirmed via a source the baby was born on Friday at a New York hospital. 

The 29-year-old actress and her husband are already parents to daughter James, who was born in December 2014. 

The name and gender of the newest member of the clan has not been revealed and Lively's publicist was not commenting. 

However according to The New York Post, one of the people to congratulate the proud parents in person was close friend, Taylor Swift.

The singer headed to the hospital on Friday morning.
