Blake Lively Talks About Her Pregnancy

Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively made her first official appearance at an event last night, following the announcement that she is pregnant with husband Ryan Reynolds’s baby.

Wearing a sparkling nude gown, the glowing 27-year-old showed off her burgeoning baby bump at the God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards in New York City.

Speaking to E! News, the star revealed that she has always wanted to be a mum.

‘I came from a big family… a big family of Southerners,' Blake said. '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,’ she added.

The happy news that the Hollywood couple were expecting their first child together hit the press after a post on Blake Lively’s lifestyle website Preserve was published celebrating all expecting mothers-to-be.
The post finished with a stunning photo of Blake herself cradling her neat baby bump, taken by her brother Eric Lively.

Style guru and red carpet veteran Blake is clearly a maternity style icon as her outfit and other items included on her website have since sold out.
It’s clear we are going to be seeing many more beautiful maternity looks from the star as her pregnancy progresses.
