Blake has an on the record quote about wanting “30 kids.” Giggle, giggle, giggle. Now nearly a year later, husband Ryan is backing up those claims.

The actor reportedly told Details that he and his wife are looking to hold up the big numbers come baby time:

“We’d love to have a big family,” he says of Lively, whom he met on the set of 2011’s The Green Lantern. “We both come from big families — my parents did four, Blake’s did five. A lot of people say it’s crazy, but we’ll only know when we’re there, you know? We’ll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think.”

Reynolds realizes that some aspects of parenthood are beyond his control — beginning with their children’s genders. “I’m terrified that I’m genetically predisposed to only having boys. That’s frightening,” he admits. “By the time I was 10 years old, and I’m not exaggerating, I knew how to patch drywall. There’s nothing my brothers and I didn’t put a hole in. We turned our home into a Wiffle house. That’s something I’m not looking forward to.”

Luckily, when you’re a celeb, you can pay to have that drywall patched up for you. No need to burden the Lively-Reynolds spawn with construction knowledge every time they throw one of their many siblings through a wall. And don’t forget a harem of nannies, housekeepers, a personal chef, and a professional dog walker if need be. Yay large (celebrity) families!
