She only announced her pregnancy a few weeks ago. But since posting that first adorable baby bump photo, Blake Lively has been showing off her new shape on red carpets galore.
Last night she joined her husband, Ryan Reynolds, for a loved up display at the Angel Ball in Manhattan, and was positively glowing.
Blake and Ryan celebrated their two-year anniversary just last month and looked the picture of the perfect couple as the mum-to-be showed off her growing bump in a gorgeous yellow dress, with a plunging neckline.
And the 27-year-old actress was obviously keen to debunk the rumours of having a bad relationship with her mother-in-law, Tammy Reynolds, as the two women enjoyed eachother’s company throughout the event.
37-year-old Ryan is clearly over the moon at the prospect of being a dad, previously joking to Canada’s eTalk: “On the plane over here I was trying to think of baby names.
“I don’t want a name that’s anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y. So I’m going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds… That’s if it’s a girl.”
And if it’s a boy?
Well, there you have it.
Meanwhile, Blake has gushed to E! about how she was simply born to be a mother and can’t wait to meet her little bundle of joy, she said: “I came from a big family, a big family of Southerners.
“I feel like I’ve always sorta… I’m the youngest of five, so I never raised any siblings below me, but I’m always the person who’s taking everyone else’s kid and putting them on my hip, so I’ve kinda always been a mama.”
Mrs Reynolds announced the news to the world via a VERY cute picture of her bump, posted to her website a few weeks ago, making us all a little bit teary-eyed.
But the Gossip Girl star was a *little* sneaky about the announcement, putting the (seriously cute) snap right at the bottom of her website’s most recent blog post… which just so happens to be about family and babies.
See what you did there, Blake!
It reads: “Preserve at its core is about family. Family is the single word our founder, Blake built this home on.
“We have something for men, for women, for the old, but we realized, we don’t have anything for the new.
“With family on our mind, we looked to the origin of it all—to the women in our lives who are right there, at that special moment; at the creation of family.”
It continues: “Today we celebrate them. With food to fill their tummies (as if that needs more filling), presents to soothe their tired (and swollen) soles, toys to warm their baby’s souls, projects to provoke them, and decorations to inspire creativity and merriment in all.
“We had too much fun with this. Because there’s so much to share, we break up our first ever Preserve Celebration into multiple parts. In the upcoming days we will bring even more treats and fun. The entire next month will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives.
“Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there. And thank you for being a part of our Preserve family.”
We can’t wait to meet baby Lively-Reynolds.
With that gene pool, you just now he/ she is going to be a cutie!
