The shower was held at Bedford Post Inn in Westchester, NY and included Lively’s family, as well as close famous friends, such as Taylor Swift. Naturally, “The Shallows” actress was thrilled.
“Ryan orchestrated it all – Blake was so surprised!” a source told People. “It was a wonderful day — the weather was perfect and Blake was super happy to celebrate with her girlfriends.”
While Reynolds did not attend the shower himself, he did organize the entire event and acted as his wife’s chauffeur for the day, dropping her off and picking her up.
The couple’s pregnancy news was confirmed in April. Their newest addition means that their 20-month-old daughter James will soon be a big sister.
Reynolds and Lively have always been vocal about wanting a big family. Back in 2013, just one year after the couple tied the knot, the “Deadpool” star gushed to Details, saying: “We'd love to have a big family. We both come from big families. A lot of people say it's crazy, but we'll only know when we're there, you know? We'll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think.”
Earlier this year, 29-year-old Lively reiterated her husband’s sentiments. “I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders,” she told Today.
