We have our first red-carpet appearance from mom-to-be Blake Lively. It was nice of her not to make us wait too long after announcing the pregnancy—and she didn’t disappoint, of course! The 27-year-old actress beamed in a form-fitting Michael Kors dress, as she stepped out at the God’s Love We Deliver, Golden Heart Awards event in New York City, Thursday night.
“I’m going to amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier,” she told Us Weekly Mag at the event, “cause that’s all that fits!”

This will be the first child for her and hubby, Canadian heartthrob Ryan Reynolds, 37. And Blake says couldn’t be more thrilled about becoming a mom.
“It’s something that I’ve always wanted ever since I was a little girl,” she told the mag. “I never knew what I wanted to do for a living but I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I had come from a big family, so it was always important to me. So it’s just the excitement of that finally being here.”
