Blake Lively just had a baby a week ago, but that isn’t stopping her from attending her friend’s wedding! The Shallows star shocked her Instagram followers by posting a picture of a wedding, showing that she is out and about even just days after giving birth. At least her husband, Ryan Reynolds, her daughter James and the new baby are in full support of this!
Delivering a baby is no joke, but knowing that this is her second one, Blake Lively must have felt that she can handle attending her friend’s wedding.
“The Shallows star (29) welcomed her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds (39) last week and just days later, she was back in high heels as she attended her assistant Jessica Rose’s wedding,” according to the Irish Independent. “Blake posted a sweet picture of her giving the bride a kiss on the cheek.”
The Shallows actress captioned the picture, “Most beautiful bride on the planet. And the best friend I could ask for. Thank you for being EVERYTHING. I love you.”
In fact, it looks like the actress was a little jealous of the fancy wedding that her assistant got to have. Maybe it brought back memories from her own wedding.
While she is willing to make her private life public, she isn’t so keen on releasing information about her daughter James or her new baby. She and her husband, Ryan Reynolds, have decided to protect the privacy of their kids for as long as they can.
“My husband and I chose a profession and a side effect of that is, your personal life is public,” the 29-year-old actress said. “Our child hasn’t had the opportunity to choose whether or not she wants her personal life to be public or not. So in order to give her as much normality as possible, we want her to have a childhood like we had.”
Now that they have not just one, but two children in their family, Blake and Ryan’s lives are surely about to change again. The Deadpool actor recently spoke about how he had to adjust his hobbies and side interests because of his wife’s pregnancy.
“[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.”
But one thing that stands out from this comment is that despite their Hollywood lifestyle, Blake Lively and her husband like to stay active and engage with nature as much as they can. That is certainly a good thing to pass onto one’s family!
That kind of active life must really help the Shallows actress from returning to her red carpet body quickly. While Blake Lively certainly has no plans on killing herself to regain her pre-baby-bump body, it looks like genes are on her side.
“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.”
She added, “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.”
