Blake Lively shows off baby bump in sequinned dress as she honors Ryan Reynolds with moving speech
This is Blake Lively's fourth pregnancy with her husband Ryan Reynolds, the couple is already parents to three daughters- James, Inez, and Betty
BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: Blake Lively has time and again proved that nobody does pregnancy fashion quite like her, and her most recent appearance at the American Cinematheque Award Show on Thursday, November 17 was another ten-on-ten look that everyone approved of! Armed with her amazing smile and the pregnancy glow, Lively looked stunning as she attended the event to present a speech about her husband, ‘Deadpool’ actor Ryan Reynolds, as he became the thirty-sixth recipient of the award, according to a report by People.
The ‘A Simple Favor’ actress has been married to Reynolds since 2012 and they are parents to three daughters- James, 7, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3. Reynolds was previously married to ‘Black Widow’ actress Scarlett Johansson, who was interestingly the previous recipient of the award. Reynolds' last appearance on the screen was for the movie 'Spirited', in which he worked with Will Ferrell.
For the glitzy evening, Lively wore a printed and sequinned Ralph Lauren maxi dress. She paired the dress with some chunky accessories and turquoise statement jewelry. Her blonde hair was let down loose to her chest, and curled and she kept her makeup neutral as well.
Lively came looking stunning to present the award to her husband as she delivered a beautifully emotional speech, in which she spoke about how much of a devoted father he is to their children. She said, “Now I am his home, and his girls are his home, and just like that 19-year-old boy he races home, whether it’s from across the globe or a meeting across the street; he is hardwired to get home. If he came home from set not in his wardrobe we would be very concerned — soaked in mud, fake blood, real blood, prosthetic scars, superhero suits, tap shoes or clown makeup, Daddy always comes home.”
The Hollywood Reporter has reported that she also praised how much of a good human being her husband is away from the camera. She said, “That man races back to his real life like nothing I have ever seen, especially not by someone who is able to be so all-in in his work life,” she continued. “He’s able to somehow be everything to everyone all at once; he is the most present person you will ever meet. And yes he creates magic in his work, but man oh man does he create magic in his real life.”
It wasn’t just Lively who had come to applaud the career of Reynolds, but also a whole host of other high-profile A-list friends- Hugh Jackman, Will Ferrell, Octavia Spencer, Helen Mirren, Shawn Levy, and Salma Hayek.
