Blake Lively attended one of her best friend’s wedding just days after giving birth to her second child.
The actress posted a picture of her kissing her assistant Jessica Snyder (now Jessica Cummings) on the cheek to Instagram on Sunday October 2, saying, “Most beautiful bride on the planet. And the best friend I could ask for … Thank you for being EVERYTHING. I love you.”
She later shared another photo of the bride’s ring, bouquet, and dress, captioning the photo “KILLER details.”
The 29-year-old actress — who recently got in shape for her movie “The Shallows” with an intense exercise regimine and by cutting out gluten and soy from her diet — reportedly gave birth to her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds, 39, in Manhattan last Friday September 30 (Taylor Swift was even reportedly in attendance!). The couple already have a daughter together named James who will turn 2 years old this December.
So far, no exact details about the baby’s gender or name have leaked to the press.
Lively has been vocal about the unfair expectations placed on women’s bodies after giving birth, and would prefer everyone concentrate on the feat of giving birth itself.
“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. You gave birth to a human being. So I would really like to see that celebrated,” the actress told Sunrise in Australia.
Previously, Lively has told interviewers she and Reynolds both want a large family, so this is likely not the last child for the actors.
“I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders,” she said on the Today show this year. “You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children.”
