Blake Lively has just announced the news of her new little family on her lifestyle website, Preserve. The site featured the photo journal of party thrown by Preserve for new mothers, with Blake’s announcement coming into focus at the end:
Lively’s team shared that she fleshed out the site around the concept of family:
Family is the single word our founder, Blake built this home on.
Blake and her husband, Ryan Reynolds, celebrated their second wedding anniversary last month. When Vogue asked Blake 73 questions on video in July, she was sporting a very tiny, unannounced baby bump. At that time, she gushed about Reynolds and dished on some of her favorite foods… maybe early pregnancy cravings? Some of her favorites hearken back to her role as Upper East Side teen Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl.
Preserve’s ethereal, Fall-themed celebration of mothers and their unborn children was an ode to family, and Lively’s team noted that family begins when pregnancy does:
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… Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there.
The website will release more photo features on the celebration in the coming weeks. Congratulations, Blake and Ryan!
