Blake Lively gazed into the eyes of her husband Ryan Reynolds at the Angel Ball at Cipriani Wall Street in Manhattan last night (October 20th). The parents-to-be – who are expecting their first child – celebrated their second wedding anniversary last month. The glowing 27-year-old took the plunge in a yellow long-sleeved gown, and she accessorised with Ofira Sandberg jewelry.

Ryan, who turns 38 on Thursday has been considering several names for his unborn child. ‘On the plane over here I was trying to think of baby names,’ Ryan told Canada’s eTalk. ‘I don’t want a name that’s anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y. So I’m going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds…that’s if it’s a girl.’

Blake said ‘I never knew what I wanted to do for a living but I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I had come from a big family, so it was always important to me. So it’s just the excitement of that finally being here.’

Last Friday, Lively – born Brown – shared snaps from her autumn-themed outdoor baby shower on her lifestyle/E-commerce website, Preserve.us.

‘With a new baby on the way there is so much to do! ‘But before experiencing the joy of 3am screams, seemingly impossible amounts of poop and having a favorite shirt covered in reflux…there are presents to open, onesies to dye, there is cake to serve, advice to be shared and all around celebration to be had. And that we did.’

We added photos from the event last night and the Preserve Baby Shower Shoot to the gallery …
