Just last month, Blake Lively told us if she "could spit out a litter of kids, she would;" today, our September cover girl's letting us know she's made good on her promise with a mightily on-brand (and completely shoppable) pregnancy announcement on her website, Preserve.
In celebration, the 27-year-old hosted a baby shower, at which the guests sipped mocktails from gilded glasses under a canopy of paper lanterns and looked lovingly down at their burgeoning bellies. The pregnant-lady party photos by brother Eric Lively are all very rustic and warm-feeling, especially the final one, which shows a backlit Blake circling her owngrowing child-carrier with two hands.
Congratulations to Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds. May your lives as parents remain this picturesque!
