In what feels like the fastest pregnancy ever, Blake Lively has given birth to her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds.
Ever since announcing her pregnancy back in June via her new lifestyle blog site Preserve, the 27-year-old actress, most famous for her role in Gossip Girl, has dazzled on the red carpet in an array of fabulously stylish yummy mummy outfits, earning herself major style icon credits.
According to Page Six, Blake Lively gave birth near the couple’s home in Bedford, New York and both mum and baby are doing well.
The beauty ambassador for L’Oreal Paris previously admitted that while she wants a brood, the role of ‘mum’ is daunting: “I came from a big family…a big family of Southerners. 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. So we’ll see.”
Meanwhile her husband, who she married in a secret ceremony in 2012, beamed whenever discussing his imminent role as daddy. “I’m just excited about having a buddy,” he said. “For a lot of new dads, you tend to dwell on the mistakes you don’t want to make. I’m at that stage still where I’m focused primarily on being open and understanding and leaving a lot of room for error.”
While the sex of the child is yet to be revealed, Ryan did hint at some ideas for baby names. “I was trying to think of baby names,” he said. “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.”
