Blake Lively has 'always been a mama'


Blake Lively has debuted her baby bump on the red carpet for the first time.

As she graced the God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards in New York on Thursday, she revealed motherhood has always felt natural to her. The 27-year-old actress spoke to E! News about coming from a large family and how that instilled parental instincts in her. "I came from a big family, a big family of Southerners," the Gossip Girl favourite explained.

‘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.’

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.

"I'm going to amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier, cause that’s all that fits!" she laughed to Us magazine.

Blake and her actor husband Ryan Reynolds announced that they were expecting their first child on October 6. The couple got married in 2012, having dated since October 2011.
