Blake Lively: 'Ryan Reynolds and I are officially breeders'

Blake Lively wants to have lots of children, and the actress joked she may even give some away.

The 28-year-old Gossip Girl star, who is expecting her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds, appeared on NBC's Today Show on Monday to promote her new film The Shallows. During the interview the mother-of-one, who gave birth to daughter James in December 2014, shared her ambitions to have a big family with her 39-year-old other half.


When asked about her daughter Blake shared: "She's always doing something fun and exciting. She's the most fun, funny human being I've ever been around in my life."


And with her second on the way, Blake admits she was on board with plans for a big family with the Deadpool star.


"I'm one of five kids; my husband's one of four," Blake explained: "We're officially breeders. You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children."


The actress' pregnancy was initially revealed during the shoot for her new movie, in which she plays a surfer who is stranded between a rock and the shore, because of a great white shark. And it was pictures of the Age of Adaline actress clad in an unforgiving wetsuit showing a hint of a bump that first sparked pregnancy speculation.


Blake revealed she was inspired to take on the role after seeing her husband in a familiar survivalist role.


"He did a film called Buried where he's in a coffin the entire time. That was, I think, probably even harder to do because you have to carry the movie in a box," she explained. "At least I got beautiful settings and a shark and all these things to help me! But an isolation film is tough. It's you the whole time and your imagination. I don't know. I hope people like it."
