Blake Lively pregnant with first child, confirms alongside husband Ryan Reynolds

The blessed life of Blake Lively is expanding into another milestone next year, the actor confirmed that she is now expecting on a blogpost on her new website, Preserve. Lively took a moment to congratulate all mothers on her site, and saying, “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.”

Lively and Reynolds have been quite the couple since the two met while filming The Green Lantern back in 2011, many have said it was the only good thing to have ever come out of that failed superhero project. Now after two-years of marriage the couple will have their first child, a first for both actors. Lively’s full statement 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.

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.
