Blake Lively welcomes baby no. 3 with Ryan Reynolds

Blake Lively welcomes baby no. 3 with Ryan Reynolds

The Hollywood couple reportedly welcomed the baby over a month ago, but are yet to publicly announce the arrival.

The lovebirds — parents to daughters James, four, and Inez, two — revealed they were expecting another bub at the May premiere of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu.

Lively, 31, posted a joyous picture of the pair on the red carpet which showed her resting one hand on her belly, with the caption “PokeMOM… Out now”.

The actors have yet to share details of the birth, however a source told US Weekly the baby “is about two months old”.

While the baby’s name or gender hasn’t been revealed, Reynolds told PEOPLE in 2016 that “if I could have nine daughters, I would be thrilled. Really, like I genuinely would be”.

In April this year, Reynolds gushed to cable TV show Extra that when his children “decide to go away to college… I’m going to be so needy”.

“I love being around them — it’s the best thing in the world.”

The couple met on the set of Green Lantern in 2010, when they were both in relationships — Lively was dating Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley and Reynolds was married to actress Scarlett Johansson.

They reportedly started dating around a year later in October 2011, and were married in September 2012.

The famous couple are fiercely private when it comes to their children, keeping them largely off social media.

After months of speculation we can finally affirm, Blake Lively is pregnant with her third child!

The actress debuted her baby bump on the red carpet while supporting husband Ryan Reynolds at the premiere of his new movie Pokemon: Detective Pikachu on Thursday (May 2) in New York City.

Blake and Ryan, who have been married since 2012, are the parents of two children – daughters James, 4, and Inez, 2.

The couple keeps their children private, but they did bring both kids to Ryan‘s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony back in December 2016 and the little ones couldn’t have been cuter.

Congratulations to the happy couple on this exciting news!!!

Blake was wearing a Retrofête dress, Stuart Weitzman sandals, a Judith Leiber clutch, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

InStyle: Blake Lively Wore Forever21 on the Red Carpet and Pretended it Was Vintage

InStyle: Blake Lively Wore Forever21 on the Red Carpet and Pretended it Was Vintage

InStyle

Perhaps no other show was more influential to early aughts fashion than Gossip Girl. And like most millennials, The Handmaid’s Tale actress Sydney Sweeney tuned in week after week to see the parade of boho meets Upper East Side princess looks worn by Blake Lively a.k.a. Serena van der Woodsen.

And now that Sweeney has become one to watch in the style department herself, it’s no surprise that she still looks to Lively for inspo, especially when it’s time for her to hit the red carpet. “Since Gossip Girl has ended, it’s been so cool to watch how Blake’s style has evolved with red carpet fashion and street style too,” says Sweeney. “I love how she’s always switching it up — one day she is bold, the next day she is elegant, and she wears everything with so much confidence.

Sweeney, who stars opposite Zendaya in the upcoming HBO series, Euphoria, as well as Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, out July 26, says she also admires Lively for opting not to use a stylist. “I’m still trying to find my style and there are always so many opinions that go in your ear when you’re starting out,” she says. “You just want to figure out what works best on you, and I love that she doesn’t use a stylist and yet she was still able to do that.

So for InStyle’s May issue, we connected Sweeney with Lively, her ultimate fashion icon, to talk shop. On the agenda? Red carpet regrets, the person they trust most for an honest outfit opinion, and why you should always channel J.Lo when you want to look fierce.

Keep scrolling for the full conversation. And for more stories like this, pick up the May issue of InStyle, available on newsstands, on Amazon, and for digital download now.

Sydney Sweeney: Blake, I’m such a big fan of yours.

Blake Lively: I’m a fan of yours! You’re so great in The Handmaid’s Tale.

SS: Thanks! Well, I’ve loved all of your red carpet looks over the years, especially the dresses you’ve worn to Cannes, like that beautiful black and white Gucci gown [below]. How long does it usually take for you to pick out a dress for an event?

BL: It all depends. There are some things I’ve had my eye on for years, just waiting for a special event to wear it to, and hoping it hadn’t been lent to someone else. A lot of designers will hold things for you, as long as you always make good. That black and white Gucci gown was actually made for me to wear to the Met Ball, inspired by the Charles James exhibit, but I figured that it might look similar to things that other people would wearing, so I saved it for Cannes. I just try to find designers who I like and trust and who make my body look better than it does when it’s not in clothes.

SS: I read that you don’t work with a stylist. How did you start developing relationships with designers? I remember you wore a Forever 21 dress to one of your first red carpets.

BL: I wore Forever 21 much longer than I admitted. I just started saying it was vintage because I was so shamed for it. [laughs] For me, fashion is a form of self-expression. It also really takes me out of my comfort zone. One of the reasons I’m an actor is that I’m naturally very shy, so it’s liberating to dress up and pretend to be someone else.

SS: I’m the same way. When I’m on set, I’m 100 percent comfortable, but at events and photo shoots, I’m beyond nervous.

BL: Same. When you have to be you, it’s the most intimidating part. The only way that I feel comfortable doing red carpets and interviews is when I adopt the same thing that I do when I’m acting, which is to play a character. So when I’m going to a premiere, I think, who is that character? And I step into that. I still get knots in my stomach before red carpets. You just want to represent yourself properly, so that’s why I chose to style myself. I also had the very fortunate and unique opportunity of being on Gossip Girl, where fashion was a main character. So I started developing relationship with designers, and then I’d get their email addresses. It all happened organically.

SS: What did you learn about style from Gossip Girl?

BL: Well, everything I know about fashion is from my mama. She’s so creative and expressive in her choices. But then being on the show, I learned so much from the incredible costume designer Eric Daman. I also figured out what I was comfortable with. For one of my first events, I wore a dress that I was so insecure in, but I was told that I couldn’t back out because it was made custom and it would hurt my relationship with the designer. It didn’t fit right though, and everybody knew it was a mess. Whenever I look at a photo from that red carpet, I can see how uncomfortable I was in my own skin. I’d never do that again.

SS: Has your style changed since you’ve become a mom? My mom wears a lot of suits like you do, and that’s one of the main things I love about your style — all of your suit moments.

BL: I think it’s changed more as I’ve gotten older. There are lots of cute little baby-doll dresses in my closet from my early 20s that I know I’m not going to wear them again because I’m not in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. I really need to adopt the Marie Kondo method, but I haven’t yet because everything in my closet still sparks joy. My style is, hopefully, becoming more elegant over time, but I still like pink and some frills.

SS: Who do you trust to give an honest opinion about an outfit? My mom is definitely very honest and so is my boyfriend.

BL: It used to be just my husband [actor Ryan Reynolds], but now it’s my kids too. And kids do not filter. [laughs]

SS: What has been your most memorable red-carpet look?

BL: I honestly can’t pick one. And I know that sounds crazy, but I love fashion too much to pick one look. I used to say my gowns from Cannes and Met Ball because that’s when you get to be the most bold and expressive. It’s Hollywood glamour in its most grand form. How about you?

SS: I loved the beautiful pink Reem Acra gown that I wore to the Emmys [below]. It was one of those princess moments where I couldn’t stop smiling.

BL: As much as I love a smoldering face, I always like people who smile on the carpet because we’re so fortunate to be there.

SS: Oh, I can’t master the smoldering look to save my life.

BL: With some outfits you need to do a smolder because if you’re wearing a slit up to your hip bone and you’re smiling like you’re on Space Mountain, it just doesn’t go together. It took me a few years to learn it too. If you pretend that you’re J.Lo, that helps.

Blake Lively talks about being a shy teenager in a new interview

Blake Lively talks about being a shy teenager in a new interview

Blake Lively gave an interview for the british magazine Psychologies were she talked about being a shy teenager and her upcoming movie The Rhythm Section. The interview was transcribed by the team of Blake Lively Source, so please, give the due credits.

Actress Blake Lively talks about being a shy teenager, how she built her confidence through acting, and her new film,The Rhythm Section, in which she plays an ex-heroin addict.

On the surface, Blake Lively has it all. much more outgoing and enthusiastic. Happily married t0 Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds and mother of James, four, and Inez, two, she enjoys the kind of life that comes with being a talented and successful actress. But, growing up in California in a family of entertainers, Lively was a tall, gangly and awkward teenager whose insecurities were a constant source of anguish for her. ‘I was pretty shy growing up,Lively admits. ‘I had problems with some of the other girls in high school and, because I was tall, I felt insecure about standing out in a crowd when I really just wanted to disappear and be alone. I was kind of withdrawn and I spent a lot of time by myself, lost in my own thoughts.’ But it was acting that built her confidence. ‘It wasn’t until I began taking acting classes that I was able to overcome my shyness in social situations. When I was 15 or 16, I started becoming much more outgoing and enthusiastic with people; I had spent so much time being this
strange introvert but, deep down, I was longing to have fun and be expressive.

It was only a few years later that Lively would burst onto the scene with her role as Upper East Side princess Serena van der Woodsen in the TV series Gossip Girl. Today, she’s enjoying life with Reynolds of Deadpool fame. While he has reinvigorated his career with the billion- dollar ‘anti-superhero’ franchise, she has maintained a steady workload while raising their children. Some of her recent films include last summer’s A Simple Favor, a mystery thriller co-starring Anna Kendrick; The Shallows, in which she plays a desperate surfer trying to survive a shark attack; and drama The Age Of Adaline.

Lively’s new film, however, the action thriller The Rhythm Section, marks a distinctive change of pace for the actress, who plays a former heroin addict, Stephanie Patrick, who transforms her life pursuing the people who orchestrated the plane crash that killed her family. Shot mostly in Dublin and Madrid, the highly anticipated film, directed by Reed Morano (The Handmaid’s Tale), co-stars Jude Law. ‘I did ride-alongs with police on drug busts and spent a lot of time walking through alleyways talking to addicts, some of whom were just teenagers,’ explains Lively about her preparation for the role. ‘It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.

For the past four years, Lively and Reynolds have chosen to live far away from Hollywood in the quiet town of Bedford in upstate New York with their daughters [James is named after Reynolds’ late father]. They also hope to expand their family in the coming years: ‘I’m one of five kids; Ryan’s one of four — so we’re officially breeders!’ In the meantime, the couple have opted to pursue their acting careers with as much passion as ever, staggering their work schedules and accompanying each other on set with the children in tow. ‘We decided that we wouldn’t be separated as a family, so we just make a home for our kids in whichever place we happen to be filming’ she says. Lively recently revealed that long before they became romantically involved, she sensed there was something special about her relationship with Reynolds. ‘I knew he’d be my best friend for my whole life. That was the biggest thing for me. I’d never known anything like the friendship I had with him. I liked him as much as I came to love him.’

The Interview

You seem to have a pretty positive personality. Is that your nature?

I get that from my mother. She would always tell me and my sister: ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way.’ That serves as my personal mantra when things get complicated in life and you want to feel sorry for yourself. I try not to let myself go there because it doesn’t do you any good, and that’s the time when you need to energise yourself even more, rather than mope around. I’m usually in pretty good spirits and I like to think I bring a positive mood to people around me.

Even though you have confessed to being shy and awkward as a young person, did you have an upbeat perspective on things, even back then?

Even as a little girl, I would think, ‘It’s a good day to be happy!’ That kind of feeling and thinking has stayed with me my entire life and I hope I never lose it. If you have self-confidence and a strong sense of
determination, then good things are going to happen to you. You can make your own luck, even when life
throws roadblocks in your way.

Do you find yourself becoming more confident with age, success, and the life you’ve made as a wife and mother?

Confidence is a strange thing sometimes. I was lucky that I grew up in a secure home environment with a family that was very supportive and loving. Then, as a young adult when you’re living on your own and making your way in life, you can lose that confidence, especially in this business where the media often tries to bring you down and some people take pleasure in criticising your work. So, that makes you question yourself; a lot of self-doubt started to creep into my head, even though I was on a successful TV
series. I went through so much soul-searching and it took me several years to regain my confidence. But I also think so much of that just has to do with struggling to figure out who you are, especially in your 20s.

Have you overcome your tendency towards shyness in social occasions?

I am much less inhibited and more open with people than I was when I was younger. Acting did that for me… But I’m still slow to make friends. I’m not the type 0f person who meets someone and, after a few minutes, I want to exchange phone numbers. It takes me some time to feel comfortable with someone.

How do you feel about performing in films with dark storylines — the violent Savages [directed by Oliver Stone] and your troubled character in The Rhythm Section?
I get to project myself into all these dark spaces and indulge in a lot of heavy psychological states. That’s what I love about acting. It helps me to understand myself better and not just stay in my comfortable little world. I’m a pretty happy person but it’s much more interesting to play tormented women who have to struggle in life. I feel that every time I finish a film I’ve become a stronger person and that pushing yourself to the maximum leaves you feeling much more confident and less fearful.

Apart from work, you’ve continued to indulge in your passion for cooking over the years… [Lively worked as a pastry chef at the celebrated Per Se restaurant in New York on her 23rd birthday and Reynolds often makes reference to his wife’s prowess in the kitchen.]

I like to tell people that I’m really a cook by nature and an actress by accident! I feel that I have a natural gift for cooking. I can get incredibly passionate about coming up with interesting dishes and learning how to prepare food and create different flavors and tastes. I love to cook for my friends and I can spend hours in my kitchen trying out various ideas and learning to concoct meals with attention to detail and taste.

Are you enjoying married life?

It’s been wonderful. Ryan and I like doing everything together. He loves helping me choose things for the house, he’s interested in all types of cuisine, and he says he loves everything I cook for him — he’s such a good liar! We help each other when we’re preparing our characters for a new nlm, too. It’s great to be partners like that with someone you love.

“Rhythm Section” To Tune Up This Fall

“Rhythm Section” To Tune Up This Fall

It has been reported that Rhythm Section, in which Blake makes her spy debut, has its release date moved from February to November 22! Deadline broke the news and you can read the full report below.

Wondering why there wasn’t a trailer to the Reed Morano-directed spy film Rhythm Section yet? That’s because Paramount is moving the IM Global/EON femme spy pic from its Feb. 22 release date to Nov. 22, the Friday before Thanksgiving.

We’ve been hearing about the release date change for a while and from what we know the pic has a great action tone that’s prime for the fall,  especially during awards season. Word is Lively is fantastic in the movie.  EON’s 007 pics have typically launched in the November month.

Morano won a DGA Award last year for her directing work on The Handmaid’s Tale. Based on Mark Burnell’s series of “Stephanie Patrick” novels, Rhythm Section centers on Lively’s protagonist who takes on an assassin’s identity so she can wage revenge against those who orchestrated a plane crash that killed her family. Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are producing under their EON banner. IM Global financed. Paramount pictures took global rights.

Rhythm Section will open against Frozen 2 on Nov. 22, and will further battle Rian Johnson’s Lionsgate/MRC pic Knives Out on Thanksgiving Eve as well as Universal’s Queen & Slim.

Blake Lively Is In Talks For New ‘Gossip Girl’-Style TV Series

Blake Lively Is In Talks For New ‘Gossip Girl’-Style TV Series

Lively is currently in talks with Amazon Studios for a scripted fashion series, the company’s head of entertainment, Jennifer Salke, revealed at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit this week.

Amazon Studio head Jennifer Salke surprised the crowd at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit on Wednesday by making two announcements: that the Emmy-winning Marvelous Mrs. Maisel would return for a second season in December (after she showed a short clip from an upcoming episode), and that actress Blake Lively will develop a scripted series for the streaming network. She hinted that Lively’s show had a fashion theme and a merchandising component.

Salke said she decided to pull the trigger on the Lively project moments before she walked onstage. “I just told business affairs I’m going to do this,” she continued, noting that Lively was currently in Rome, sleeping. “She’ll wake up to it.

Divulging that the deal is just “a moment from done”, Salke described Lively as “a force of nature: ambitious, smart and talented,” reports Variety.

Blake also has a huge appetite for a big scripted show with a really interesting writer who I can’t talk about yet,” Salke revealed at the Summit. “[They] will bring to life a scripted show that will be excellent and culturally relevant and original and all those things, but it will also have a connection to a merchandising opportunity,
