After announcing her pregnancy on her Preserve website last week, the former Gossip Girl star showed off more snaps of her growing baby bump on the site in photos from her recent pregnancy celebration.
"With a new baby on the way there is so much to do!" Lively wrote on the blog post "Bringing Up Baby" Friday. "But before experiencing the joy of 3am screams, seemingly impossible amounts of poop and having a favorite shirt covered in reflux ... there are presents to open, onesies to dye, there is cake to serve, advice to be shared and all around celebration to be had. And that we did."
In the shots, Blake can be seen smiling as she hangs out with other moms-to-be at a festive outdoor fall bash, toting a three-tiered cake in one shot as she warms up in a furry plaid jacket.
Another snap revealed several moms-to-be sitting around a table topped with apples, squash bowls filled with soup and other treats. And in another shot, Blake smiles for the camera as she strikes a pose cradling her burgeoning belly.
This is the first child for Blake and her hubby Ryan Reynolds, with the 27-year-old actress announcing the news via a blog post, writing, "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." In the post, she showed off a shot of her baby bump for the first time.
