Pregnant actress Blake Lively has hosted a special party to celebrate her baby news.
The Gossip Girl star is expecting her first child with her actor husband Ryan Reynolds and she announced the news on Monday (06Oct14) by sharing a picture of her baby bump in a post on her Preserve lifestyle website.
The actress has now uploaded snaps of a celebration party which she held with family and friends to toast her pregnancy.
She posted pictures from the bash online which show her being presented with a large cake and enjoying an outdoor meal with her loved ones.
Lively adds in a caption, "With a new baby on the way there is so much to do! But before experiencing the joy of 3am screams, seemingly impossible amounts of poop and having a favorite shirt covered in reflux... there are presents to open, onesies to dye, there is cake to serve, advice to be shared and all around celebration to be had. And that we did..."
Since the pregnancy news emerged, Lively's former Gossip Girl co-star and onscreen mother Kelly Rutherford has sent her best wishes, telling People.com, "I think she'll be an amazing mom. She's such a family person, she always used to offer to babysit my kids. She comes from such a beautiful family."
