Forget the Cake: Blake Lively’s Daughter Wanted Steak For Her Birthday

No sweets for one-year-old Inez—she skipped the smash cake and went right for the steak.

Mom of two Blake Lively stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday to chat about daughters James and Inez, who are 2- and 1-years-old, respectively. 

“You know, it’s super-calm at our house,” the actress joked. She then went onto to tell Jimmy how she made Inez a Cookie Monster cake to mark the occasion of her first birthday. Because she’s not just beautiful and talented, but also apparently Pinterest-savvy.

“It was so cute,” she explained. “You shove cookies in his mouth, and they crumble. And she just looked at it and it and reached for a steak.”

LOL. Best laid plans, right? And apparently, one birthday steak wasn’t even enough to satisfy Lively’s littlest girl.

“She was hand-fisting two steaks,” the Gossip Girl alum recounted. “Her sleeves were dripping in blood. I’ve given birth to a viking!”

That actually sounds like a pretty adorable Halloween costume idea to us, though it looks like big sis James may have a slightly different concept in the works. 

“She was like, ‘Oh, I’m gonna be Cinderella,” Lively explained of her oldest. “And I said, ‘Oh that’s so special does Baby Nezy get to be Elsa?’ ‘No Mike Wazowski.’” From Monsters Inc. The one-eyed, round monster. That’s what she has to be.”

Spotted: Sibling rivalry at its finest! Could Lively and her hunky husband Ryan Reynolds have a mini Serena and mini Blair on their hands? Stay tuned xoxo.

  1. My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SleepBaby .org<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SleepBaby .org<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
