Is there a way to refer (dynamically) to a numbered item in a Google Doc?

For example, say I have a list:

  1. Item one
  2. Item two
  3. Item three

and I wish to refer to item 2. in a normal paragraph, but in such a way that if I were to insert an item above item two, like this:

  1. Item one
  2. Inserted item
  3. Item two
  4. Item three

then my reference to item 2. in my paragraph should update to 3, how would I accomplish this?
