Happy birthday, Blake Lively! The fashion maven, stunning actress, and most exciting of all — brand new mother! — is turning 28 today, August 25! We bet husband Ryan Reynolds and little James have a wonderful day planned out for her!
Blake Lively is turning 28 today, August 25! We’ve loved Blake ever since her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants days, and can’t believe how much she’s grown as an actress in the last 10 years! We’ll always think of her as Serena van der Woodsen, but Gossip Girl is really just a blip on the radar now! This past year, Blake has gone through so many changes, revamping her career and adding a new little one to her family. She’s got a lot to celebrate today!
Have you ever seen a more stylish pregnant woman than Blake? Throughout her whole pregnancy, Blake still kept her incredible sense of fashion while altering it to be comfy and cozy for her baby bump. Love it! Her daughter with husband Ryan Reynolds, 38, was born in December 2014, and we think that baby James is just the cutest!
Having a kid isn’t the only change Blake experienced in the last year. In Summer 2014, she launched a lifestyle website called Preserve, which showcases the people behind the things that Blake and her partners love. How cool! Really — who wouldn’t want to live a little like Blake?
Proving that there’s truly nothing that Blake can’t do, she launched a capsule fashion collection on Preserve shortly after giving birth to James! The eco-friendly dresses were only sold on the site, and were absolutely amazing. We wish we could have gotten our hands on a few!
The talented actress, who we got to see this year in the gorgeous Age of Adaline, has a few key projects lined up in the next year. She’ll be starring in All I See As You, as well as a mysterious untitled Woody Allen film. What could that be? Whatever it is, we’re dying to see more Blake on our screens; Gossip Girl was so long ago!
HollywoodLifers, help us wish Blake a happy birthday in the comments!
