Now, however, online reports are swirling that the Deadpool star, age 45, and the 34-year-old Gossip Girl alum are on the rocks. Per one article regarding the purported situation:

“…it takes a lot of effort and sacrifice to keep their relationship on track,” says the insider, adding that things have been rocky for the intensely private pair as they face off over plans for baby No. 4 and talk of leaving Hollywood for good.

“They’ve become very good at faking it and hiding things from the public,” notes the insider. “They’re actors, after all, and it helps both of their careers to portray a certain persona. Plus, they believe they should work things out between themselves behind closed doors.”

Reynolds did, however, recently announce an acting “sabbatical” in order to focus on his family and recently shared it was going well. In an interview, he explained:

“I’m not shooting another film [now]. I have lots of other things I have to do, but the main point is that I’m there for my kids in the morning and night and I’m getting up with them and I’m putting them to bed at night. Those are things that I think they should be able to take for granted. Those are not things that should feel special in any way, shape, or form. So I’ll be in development on tons of stuff and working during the day while they’re at school. But for the most part, yeah. I’m not going to be shooting any films for a while.”
