The star was born and raised in Tarzana, a suburb of Los Angeles, and her parents come from the South. Blake explained that a close family mentality trained her for what’s to come.

"I feel like I've always sorta… I'm the youngest of five, so I never raised any siblings below me,” she explained. “But I'm always the person who's taking everyone else's kid and putting them on my hip, so I've kinda always been a mama. So we'll see."

The star accentuated her growing bump perfectly at the event, opting for a floor-length tan dress with an overlay boasting tiny pink and purple flowers.

Blake has always been quite the fashionista, but of course pregnancy has given her some new parameters. She confessed that stretch fabrics have become a staple in her wardrobe of late.
