Blake Lively Stops Instagram Activity, Pregnant ‘The Shallows’ Actress And Ryan Reynolds Preps For Baby Arrival In 2016

Blake Lively is preparing for the arrival of her second baby with her husband Ryan Reynolds and that means limiting her Instagram activity. The last time The Shallows actress uploaded anything on her Instagram was over five weeks ago, which means that she is concentrating on the fact that she is pregnant.

Her husband, Ryan Reynolds, has been super supportive of his wife as she prepares to give him his second baby. The fact that he was glad to give up his hiking hobby to be of service to her shows just how much of a dedicated father he is.

“[Hiking] plays a huge part in my daily routine,” he said, according to Variety. “Hiking is like a part of my workout. I love it. My wife is just extraordinarily pregnant right now, so there’s not a lot of hiking in her immediate future—nor do I think it’s going to happen the second she gives birth, either. I’m told there’s some recuperation that’s needed.”

Ryan Reynolds has always been a jokester, constantly working his funny bone to make fun of himself and his family. But one thing that he has not joked about was her post-pregnancy body. He probably understands what a sensitive subject that is in Hollywood.

When Blake Lively was asked about just how quickly she returned to bikini body for The Shallows, she commented on how unfair the pressure the public puts on celebrity mothers.

“It’s so unfair though, because it’s so celebrated,” the pregnant actress said to People. “It’s like, this is what someone can look like after a baby. I think a woman’s body after having a baby is pretty amazing.”

“You don’t need to be Victoria’s Secret ready right away because you just did the most incredible miracle that life has to offer. I mean you gave birth to a human being! So I would really like to see that celebrated.”

But after promoting The Shallows, the actress has decided to pull the plug on Instagram and Twitter to make sure that she can give her full attention to her baby to come.

Before going off grid, though, she made sure to crack a few jokes herself about the fact that her husband Ryan Reynolds is becoming a hot Hollywood star.

“I was on a plane with my baby, James. It’s kind of torture these days because I’m on a plane and everywhere I look, every screen is my husband in a sex montage throughout the holidays with another woman,” Blake said to Vanity Fair. “Everybody wants to watch Deadpool on the plane. Everyone!”

“But like for 14 hours having your husband having mashed potatoes eaten out of his butthole—because that’s in the film—it’s lovely. It’s a cruel and unusual form of torture,” she said. “And then my daughter goes, ‘Da-Da!’ She starts hugging and kissing the screen and waving at him, and he’s not waving back. She doesn’t understand why he’s not waving back at her, because she thinks it’s like FaceTime. And it’s because Daddy’s getting it, and the mashed potatoes…”

For now, baby showers and family time is all that is on Blake’s mind. Instead of focusing on her 29th birthday celebrations, she decided to double it up with the baby shower.

The word on the street is that it was a nice simple brunch that casual friends like Taylor Swift and Amber Tamblyn attended, according to Us Weekly. They “gathered at Italian eatery Campagna in New York’s Bedford Post Inn for the occasion.”
