Blake Lively

Blake Lively may be trying to follow in the footsteps of Gwyneth Paltrow by adding "founder of a lifestyle blog" to her title—but now she's following in the GOOP actress's footsteps in another way: she's starting a family!

Yep, 27-year-old Lively and her hubby, actor Ryan Reynolds, 37, are expecting their first child together! Lively shared the news on her website, Preserve, in a pretty low-key way: A family-centered post featuring a pretty baby shower celebration for expecting moms ended with one very special photo—a shot of Lively caressing her very own baby bump. See it here!
