Blake Lively Just Gifted Us With a New Pregnancy Slideshow

Blake Lively has no time for the paparazzi's antics. The Simple Favor actress recently revealed she was pregnant with her fourth child when she debuted a growing baby bump on the red carpet at the Forbes Power Women's Summit. Now, Lively has shared a slew of her own pregnancy photos to her Instagram in an effort to thwart the inevitable onslaught of photogs hoping to get a money shot.

“Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a [unicorn] sighting will leave me alone,” she wrote in the caption of her post. “You freak me and my kids out.”

She also expressed her gratitude for those who treated her and her children with respect, writing, “Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications who share photos of children. You have all the power against them. And thank you to the media who have a ‘no kids policy.’ You all make all the difference. Much love! Xxb.”

In the slideshow, Lively is seen hanging by the pool with her hubby, Ryan Reynolds, 45, and hugging her famous pal, Taylor Swift. Other photos depict her with her half-sister, Robyn Lively, as well as her friend, Samantha Stone.

The Gossip Girl alum revealed she was pregnant while stopping by the Forbes Power Women's Summit to talk about her experiences in the field of business. While there, she told an E! News interviewer, “I just like to create—whether that's baking or storytelling or businesses or humans, I just really like creating.”

This will be the fourth child that Lively shares with Reynolds. The pair wed in 2012 and they are currently the parents to James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2.

If one thing's for sure, it's that the Betty Buzz founder certainly knows how to make a red carpet pregnancy splash. When she was carrying her youngest daughter, Betty, in 2019, she revealed the exciting news at the Pokémon Detective Pikachu premiere, where she stepped out in a form-fitting yellow Rebecca slip dress by Retrofête.
