Saturday afternoon, Blake Lively had her baby shower for baby #2 about an hour outside of Manhattan. It was a quiet, private event at the Bedford Post Inn in Bedford, N.Y., a source tells E! News (opens in new tab). Guests arrived at 11 a.m. for the 90-minute party before some went back to her and Ryan Reynolds' house nearby (opens in new tab) for more celebrating.

Taylor Swift, who just gave Lively a birthday shoutout and hosted her at the Taymerica Fourth of July blowout (opens in new tab), was among the party goers, E! confirms.

Their backdrop looked like this:

Though no info on the decor or food has been reported, we're assuming a whole lot of deliciousness was going on, given Lively's love of sweets.

Which explains why Taylor was in NYC before she had to attend Jury duty in Nashville (opens in new tab), Monday.

Lively's second pregnancy was first reported in April (opens in new tab).
