Blake Lively, who got married to Ryan Reynolds last weekend in a super secret ceremony, is featured on the cover and in the pages of Allure magazine. In her coverstory interview, which took place well before her recent marriage, Blake talks about her love of family, the happiness she feels and her desire to have 30 children … if she could. Now, I’m not sure if hubby Ryan is up for the challenge but I suspect he’d be up for giving it a try :) Click below to see Blake’s latest coverphoto for Allure, read excerpts from her interview and see a couple photos from her spread.
Blake Lively married her boyfriend of a year Ryan Reynolds in a top secret ceremony South Carolina on Sunday – and it seems a baby might soon be on the way. The Gossip Girl actress revealed her hopes for a large brood in an interview with Allure Magazine which took place just weeks before she said ‘I do’. She told the publication: ‘I’ve always wanted a big family…Oh, I’d love 30 [children] if I could.’ The 25-year-old also revealed she’s in a state of bliss with her Green Latern co-star and real life love, saying: ‘Right now, I’m so peaceful…I’ve never been happier in my life.’ ‘It’s the choice that you have to wake up every day and say, “There’s no reason today can’t be the best day of my life.”‘ In the new issue, Blake is seen looking ethereal as she holds a baby goat and also wears hotpants in a grassy country field in the sexy spread shot by photographer Carter Smith. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star, who doesn’t drink and has never tried drugs, admitted that she’d rather have cellulite and eat ice-cream than be stick-thin.
‘I obviously have plenty of imperfections on my body, but I’d rather have a little bit of cellulite and go do a food trip and try every ice cream place in the South,’ said the starlet.
And, just to follow-up on THIS post, here are a few more deets about Blake and Ryan’s secret wedding this past weekend:
Blake exchanged vows with the 35-year-old leading man last weekend at Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston, which famously appeared in the uber-romantic 2004 movie, The Notebook. Blake walked down the aisle over the weekend in a custom-made Marchesa ballgown adorned with rose gold and crystal embroidery, while the groomsmen reportedly wore Burberry with leather suspenders. According to People, Martha Stewart’s team assembled the nuptials’ elegant reception and ‘carnival hour,’ which will be detailed in the December issue of Stewart’s Weddings magazine. Florence Welch reportedly sang three songs at the reception.
CLEARLY, Blake and Ryan were stuck really hard by love at first sight … or something like that. We know the pair worked together on the film Green Lantern and it must’ve been then that the couple developed their strong feelings for one another. The fact that they needed to be married less than a year after their relationship started officially says a lot. In this interview, Blake sounds blissfully happy … which is a really nice to see from a young married couple. It remains to be seen if Blake will get her wish of having 30 children but … I wouldn’t be surprised if baby #1 comes along soon.
