Add Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds to the list of professionally beautiful people making beautiful babes: The actress went public with her pregnancy this morning via her lifestyle retail site Preserve, tucking a baby bump pic at the end of an ode to mothers and family. The site's Instagram teased the news a bit more heavy-handedly, captioning a pic of baby onesies with, "Hmm... What's that? Big news on www.Preserve.us Check it out... Who can find it first? #PreserveCelebration #bignews."
The site welcomes both Blake's bump and a bunch of twee products for babies and baby showers, writing:
Family is the single word our founder, Blake built this home on. [...]
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.
The child will most likely be one of a whole brood of Lively-Reynolds's. The two have been quite vocal about wanting to raise a number of small humans.
