Actress Blake Lively is expecting her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds.

Hollywood actress Blake Lively announced that she and her movie star husband (37) were expecting their first child earlier this month.

The 27-year-old took to her lifestyle blog Preserve to give fans an insight into her life as an expectant mum.

In the images, Blake wears clothes from the site, which allow the stylish star to show off her barely-there baby bump.

“With a new baby on the way there is so much to do,” Blake writes in a blog post titled ‘Bringing Up Baby’.

“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.”

To “celebrate the beauty of motherhood”, Blake enlisted her friends for a rustic, outdoor baby shower, and all the action was captured on camera by her brother Eric Lively.

The former Gossip Girl actress has been inundated with well wishers from the acting community.

Kelly Rutherford, who played her mother of the hit teen show, has said that Blake is a “natural mother”.

“I’m so happy for her. She was always so sweet to my kids on set...I think she’ll be such a great mom.”

“She’s just beautiful,” Kelly added. “She has an amazing family so I think she understands the beauty of family, and the balance of it all.”
