Blake Lively Shares Pregnancy Pics — Including one With Taylor Swift
The actress published a series of images showing her “pregnant in real life,” one of which included a picture of her cuddling Swift.
Blake Lively, who is having her fourth child with husband Ryan Reynolds, shared a number of intimate pictures of herself with her friends and family on Instagram on Saturday, September 17. One of the pictures even had a cameo from Taylor Swift.
Lively revealed her pregnancy on Thursday after she appeared at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit on Thursday.
The actor posed for the shutterbugs in a sequined long-sleeved mini dress flaunting her baby bump.
Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a 🦄 sighting will leave me alone. 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

However, her post’s message indicates that life hasn’t been as idyllic as the images suggest.
James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2, are Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ three children, although they have long kept their relationship hidden. The couple has in the past delayed naming their children by several months and avoided sharing birth announcements. (In 2015, James’ name was announced live on TODAY!) Rarely do the parents take pictures of their children, and when they do, they are careful to hide their girls’ faces on social media.
In announcing her pregnancy, Blake Lively criticizes the paparazzi/press for bothering her family.
The 35-year-old star also criticised the paparazzi for forming a line outside her house to take photographs of her in an Instagram post.
The photos included one with her friend Taylor Swift and in another, she is embracing her older sister, Robyn Lively.
Lively complimented those who adhere to the “No Kids Policy” of celebrities, which asks media outlets to forgo purchasing images of celebrities’ children from paparazzi.
“Thank you to everyone else for your support, kindness, and willingness to keep unfollowing websites and accounts that post images of children. You can defeat them with all of your strength. And kudos to the media for adopting a “No Kids Policy.” You all are the only ones who matter. plenty of love “Finally, she said.
