Article updated on 09/09/23: Blake Lively has shared an ingenious fashion tip with her Instagram followers, after recently experiencing a maternity wardrobe malfunction of her own.

The actor, who is pregnant with her fourth child with husband Ryan Reynolds, posted an image of herself wearing a black-and-white polka-dot dress worn open to reveal her growing baby bump, paired with a long black skirt and pink heels.

Lively captioned the photo: 'When the back of your skirt won't zip and the front of your dress won't button, wear both'. The star then wrote, 'Who says two wrongs don't make a right??'

When the result looks this good (and chic), we're inclined to wholeheartedly agree.


Article updated on 03/01/23: Blake Lively is documenting the final stages of her fourth pregnancy and, like most of us, appears to kicking off January on a healthy note with a visit to the gym.

On Tuesday, the mother-of-three - who is pregnant with her fourth child with husband Ryan Reynolds - shared a 'before' and 'after' photo of herself in a gym studio with her personal trainer Don Saladino.

'Been doing @donsaladino's workout program for months now. Something isn’t working,' she captioned the photo of herself. On the left, Lively poses with her trainer, seemingly before or during the early days of her pregnancy, while on the right she is seen standing in the exact same pose yet with a visible baby bump.

In September 2022, Lively shared a photo of herself during various stages of her previous pregnancies as a way of deterring photographers from encroaching on her family's private space.

'Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a 🦄 sighting will leave me alone,' she began the caption. 'You freak me and my kids out. Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications who share photos of children. You have all the power against them. And thank you to the media who have a “No Kids Policy”. You all make all the difference 🙏♥️. Much love! Xxb'

Article originally published on 15/09/22: Blake Lively surprised the world today with a glittering, non-verbal announcement.

The Shallows actor, 35, arrived at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women's Summit - where she was interviewed by Moira Forbes - in a gorgeous, sequinned Valentino mini dress, and cream Valentino Garavani platform heels. But it wasn't the dress' embellishments that wowed the onlooking crowds (and the paparazzi), so much as what she was proudly showing off beneath the dress' layers.

On the red carpet of the Lincoln Centre, Lively displayed a baby bump, which she cradled in a few of the pictures with her right hand, indicating that she and husband Ryan Reynolds, 45, are expecting their fourth child together.

Lively and Reynolds already have three daughters: James, 7; Inez, 5; and Betty, 2, with their youngest, Betty, arriving only in October of 2019.

During the September 15 event in New York City, Lively subtly alluded to her pregnancy, rather than outright referencing it. She shared on stage: 'I just like to create. Whether that's baking or storytelling or businesses or humans, I just really like creating.'

The couple are rarely seen in public with the three daughters that they have had so far, with Lively recently urging that paparazzi 'stop the scary exploitation of celebrity children' after she was ambushed on the street by flashing bulbs while with her kids.

In a post shared to Instagram, she thanked the various publications and other social media accounts that were helping to 'put their foot down' to stop showcasing children's faces in their pictures.

While they might keep them out of the public eye, Ryan and Blake, who married in 2012, often speak about their children and their parenting styles.

'Having children for me made me feel so much more in my skin,' Lively said to Forbes in May. 'I never felt more myself or at ease in my own body or more confident—not to say that there aren't a bevy of insecurities coming at me a million times a day, but I just feel incredibly settled.'

Meanwhile, it seems like Reynolds is never not talking or tweeting about his kids:
