Blake Lively is pregnant with her first child, according to the actress herself, who broke the news somewhat cryptically on her new lifestyle site Preserve!
Lively, who is married to Ryan Reynolds, just launched a Preserve Celebration of Family on her site, in honor of “that special moment at the creation of family.”
Publishing a host of pictures of happily pregnant women, Blake congratulated "all the expecting mothers out there," then shared one more special photo:
The photo of the Gossip Girl beauty and her baby bump was taken by her brother Eric Lively. Posing in the twilight, she cradles her future offspring proudly.
Lively has been quite vocal about wanting to start a family since marrying Ryan Reynolds in 2012, and as one of five kids, she says she wants a big one, too.
Still, no one saw this pregnancy coming.
The couple, who met while filming their 2011 movie, The Green Lantern, secretly wed in an intimate South Carolina ceremony and keep a low profile.
