There are a number of reasons why we're excited about Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds becoming parents again. For starters, both seem like genuinely lovely, funny, nice people; Blake's got that whole more-approachable-Gwyneth-Paltrow thing going, while Ryan's all about a good dad joke. There's also those enviable genes to consider — we doubt any of their offspring will ever suffer from the indignities of zits or bad hair days.
But mostly, we're excited at the prospect of seeing Blake strolling around in chic patterned ponchos and leather maternity leggings for the next six or so months. After all, she's one of those fortunate few who somehow manage to look even more gorgeous and stylish while expecting than when they're not (see also: Kate Middleton).
And while we can't be sure whether her commitment to eco-friendly brands and artisanal accessories will carry over into her second pregnancy now that her lifestyle site Preserve is no more, we're willing to bet that no matter what she wears, it'll be worth a second (and third, and fourth) look. Check out the best outfits from her first pregnancy in the gallery above.
