Blake announced her pregnancy about a week ago, and last night she proudly paraded her blossoming bump, at the God’s Love We Deliver, Golden Heart Awards in New York City. We have added x79 photos from the event.

Speaking to E! the star revealed that she feels she has ‘always’ been a mother. ‘I came from a big family, a big family of Southerners,’ she told them, adding: ‘I feel like I’ve always sorta… I’m the youngest of five, so I never raised any siblings below me, but I’m always the person who’s taking everyone else’s kid and putting them on my hip, so I’ve kinda always been a mama’.

Blake’s clinging dress featured long sleeves and flowed from her thighs-down. She styled her golden locks in loose curls which fell past her shoulders and dangling earrings. The Gossip Girl star’s make-up coordinated with her ensemble, consisting of a neutral Autumn-inspired palette.

The Preserve founder appeared to be without her husband Ryan Reynolds but she did have designer Michael Kors by her side on the red carpet. Other stars to attend the event included model Bette Midler, Nicola Peltz, Gigi Hadid, Halle Berry, Hilary Rhoda, and Jaime King.
