Blake Lively is pregnant!
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star recently shared that she and her husband, actor Ryan Reynolds, are expecting their first child together on her Preserve website.
“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,” the post read along with a picture of Blake’s growing baby bump that was taken by her brother Eric Lively.
“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,” she continued.

Earlier this summer, a source close to the couple revealed that Blake was ready to become a mother and was hoping to become pregnant this year. “They want to have a baby very soon,” the source told Life and Style magazine in June. “She and Ryan would love to get pregnant by this year!”

“Her baby hormones are going crazy,” another source revealed to OK! magazine. “Blake grew up in a big family, so she wants more than one!”
Blake has always been open about her desire to have children and told Allure magazine that she would have 30 if she could. “I have always wanted a big family,” Blake told the publication last year. “Oh, I’d love 30 [children] if I could.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
