Speaking to US Weekly Lively stated that pregnancy was always a priority to the actor, “It’s something that I’ve always wanted ever since I was a little girl,” she explained. At 27 this is Lively’s first pregnancy, her husband and soon-to-be father Ryan Reynolds (37) couldn’t make the event but was still the talk of the town on the red-carpet. Lively had nothing but wonderful things to say about Reynolds, “You want to be able to complain about your husband and be that person, but he takes pretty good care of me.”
