Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are known for their preference to stay out of the bright Hollywood lights, but his week the couple turned up for a rare public appearance together.

The couple showed up for the star-studded Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala in New York City on Tuesday, appearing plenty affectionate. Both Blake and Ryan were praised for their style, with Blake wearing a Gucci gown and her husband opting for a classic tux.

The couple's quiet ways have often helped fuel the rumor mill, and that has certainly been the case lately. There have been repeated reports over the past several months that Blake Lively was pregnant, and early this year new rumors kicked around that Ryan Reynolds was having an affair with his Mississippi Grind co-star Sienna Miller.

A February report from Star Magazine claimed that Blake was jealous of how much time her husband was spending with an "admitted cheater."

"Blake is petrified that Ryan'll be tempted to stray," a source told the magazine.

But CelebDirtyLaundry cast doubt on the Ryan Reynolds cheating rumor:

"Well, this whole story is based on a lie, so it's hard to believe the rest of it. Blake and Ryan are actually spending time together on the set of Mississippi Grind in Louisiana, and Blake's actually with Ryan part-time in his temporary housing during filming. Considering that she doesn't start filming Age of Adaline just yet, what else is she doing to do?"

More recent rumors claimed that Blake and Ryan were fighting over when to have kids.

"The couple have come to blows over when to start a family," noted a report from

Another source said that Ryan is itching to get started having kids.

"He's 37 and she's only 26. She says she's too young and not ready for that step," the source said.

Neither Blake Lively nor Ryan Reynolds have addressed the rumors, but judging by their recent appearance at the Met Gala the reports could just be a bunch of hot air.
