Blake Lively, 27, revealed on Preserve (which is essentially the Lively version of Gwyneth Paltrow’s obnoxious lifestyle website Goop) that she’s pregnant! This is the first child for Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds, 37. The two met on the set of Green Lantern and got officially hitched in 2012. (Prior to that Lively was bike riding with Leonardo DiCaprio across NYC like a pair of yuppie hipsters. Remember that?)
Anyway, the blog post featured a photo (above) of Lively cradling her baby bump. Photo credit goes to Blake Lively’s brother, Eric Lively of Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas and So Weird fame. The article itself is a bit weird but copy writing has never been very good over at Preserve.
Preserve at its core is about family.
Family is the single word our founder, Blake built this home on.
We have something for men, for women, for the old, but we realized, we don’t have anything for the new.
With family on our mind, we looked to the origin of it all—to the women in our lives who are right there, at that special moment; at the creation of family.
Today we celebrate them. With food to fill their tummies (as if that needs more filling), presents to soothe their tired (and swollen) soles, toys to warm their baby’s souls, projects to provoke them, and decorations to inspire creativity and merriment in all.
We had too much fun with this. Because there’s so much to share, we break up our first ever Preserve Celebration into multiple parts. In the upcoming days we will bring even more treats and fun. The entire next month will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives.
Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there.
And thank you for being a part of our Preserve family.
I figure Blake Lively has opted for becoming a lifestyle brand rather than a working actress.
Other notable celebrity pregnancies announced this year: Prince William and Kate Middleton, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd, Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, and Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko.
