Blake Lively looked like a billion bucks during her fourth pregnancy when she stepped out in New York City on Saturday, October 5. The gorgeous Gossip girl alum, 35, showed off her growing baby bump in a sophisticated black ensemble with knee-high boots and a striped Chanel bag. It looked like she was on a solo Big Apple trip, as her husband Ryan Reynolds was not taken, and neither were their three children: James6, Inez4 and Betty2.
The Green lantern actress is definitely proud of her expectant status as she recently shared a photo album on Instagram of herself pregnant while surrounded by friends and family. One of the snaps features Blake’s BFF Taylor Swift and the pregnant star wrapping their arms around each other for a big hug.
As fans know, Blake, Taylor and Ryan go way back, as they are often out and about together, or helping each other with projects. Last year, after Taylor’s Saturday Night Live show, the trio were seen heading to the famous sketch show’s after party as a group. The outing came after Taylor revealed that Blake offered her creative talents to direct a new music video for the singer. “I finally got to work with the brilliant, brave and funny @blakelively on her directorial debut,” Taylor posted on Instagram at the time. “Join us as we raise a toast, and some hell.”
And as Taylor Stans would know, what really cements the three friends as BFFs is the fact that the Grammy winner revealed the name of the couple’s youngest child in one of her songs! Before “Betty” was released on Taylor’s Folklore album, Blake and Ryan kept their daughter’s name a secret until that point. Taylor also used the names of her famous friends’ two other children, James and Inez, in the ditty! Talk about confidence!
Blake revealed that she and Ryan were pregnant again when she made her debut at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit in NYC on September 14. The picture-perfect couple officially got married on September 9, 2012.
