Let the countdown to baby #2 begin! Blake Lively is expecting her and Ryan Reynolds’ 2nd child together and to celebrate, the star enjoyed a private baby shower with her very best pals on Aug. 27! And even sweeter, Taylor Swift reportedly scored an invite — aw! Do we sense a new power pairing?
It’s been over four months since the exciting news broke that Blake Lively, 29, is expecting her second child with hubby Ryan Reynolds, 39! And now, with the little one’s arrival just about two or three months away, the actress held a private baby shower to celebrate the happy occasion — and you better believe she invited all of her celeb friends!
The celebration was held at the Bedford Post Inn on the afternoon of Aug. 27 in New York, according to E! News. Guests apparently started arriving around 11 a.m. and partook in the 90-minute gathering in the heart of Westchester County. Sounds pretty glamorous, right? And once Blake’s baby shower ended, a few guests went back to her and Ryan’s house to hang out and catch up even more. SO sweet! That’s one party we wish we could have scored an invite to!
As for who DID receive an invitation? Apparently Taylor Swift, 26! And we have to say — we are a bit jealous, but not surprised. After all, the “Blank Space” singer did invite both Blake and Ryan to her BEYOND epic 4th of July party this past year, and from the looks of Tay’s Insta pics, it looks like the two had an absolute blast together. Talk about #FriendshipGoals!
And let’s not forget that for Blake’s 29th b-day on Aug. 25, T-Swift wished the blonde bombshell a happy birthday on Instagram with an adorable pic featuring the two cuddling with a koala. “HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLAKE! You’re a wonderful friend, to humans and koalas alike. I absolutely love you,” she captioned the cute snap.
Blake and Ryan, who are already parents to 20-month-old daughter James, are super psyched to be expanding their fam, and we are SO happy for the expectant parents. It looks like they’re not stopping at baby number two either as the actress said on Today earlier this summer, “I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders. You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children.”
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you wish YOU were at Blake’s baby shower? Are you excited for the star to give birth?
