Blake Lively And Her Baby Bump Make First Red Carpet Appearance

She's got that glow!

On Thursday, Blake Lively made her first red carpet appearance since announcing her pregnancy, and girl couldn't help but show off her growing baby bump.

The former "Gossip Girl" actress, who's expecting her first child with hubby Ryan Reynolds, attended the God's Love We Deliver, Golden Heart Awards in New York City wearing a floor-length floral Michael Kors gown that hugged her growing belly.

So how did the 27-year-old figure out how to style her changing body? Well, the Preserve founder/editor did what any of us would do: wear something stretchy.

"I'm going to amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier, cause that’s all that fits!" the pretty blond told Us Weekly at the event.

It's obvious that the actress can't wait for her bundle of joy to arrive. "It’s something that I’ve always wanted ever since I was a little girl," she told Us Weekly. "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."

Blake also posted photos of her baby shower on Preserve, which showed the proud mama-to-be looking gorgeous in a long print skirt, floral blouse and cozy wool coat.

We can't wait to see how Blake's maternity style evolves!
