AceShowbiz - Blake Lively has gotten real about being a mother to three children under the age of six. Through delighted by the arrival of her third daughter with husband Ryan Reynolds, the actress who can be seen playing Stephanie Patrick in "The Rhythm Section" admitted it was not easy raising three young children.
When stopping by "Good Morning America" on Tuesday, January 28, the 32-year-old actress opened up about her "crazy" life. "At one point, we had three [kids who were] four and under," she pointed out as referring to 5-year-old James, 3-year-old Inez and her baby girl whose name was yet to be revealed.
Asked how it feels like going from having two children to raising three, the former "Gossip Girl" star responded, "It's like going from two to 3,000. I mean, we have so many children. It's pretty crazy. We're outnumbered, and it's a lot. People say that from two to three, it's the same, it's kind of easy. Those people do not have three kids." She added, "It is crazy. But I'm here!"
Back in 2016, however, Lively has a different view of motherhood. In an interview for the August issue of Marry Claire, the "Green Lantern" actress said, "I wanted to go to a Mommy & Me class before I was a mom. People really expect that you're suddenly a different woman, and I think it strips a woman's identity in a way that is kind of strange, because I've always been innately maternal my whole life."
Children aside, Lively has been busy promoting her new movie "The Rhythm Section". On Monday, January 27, she made her first red carpet appearance after giving birth to her third daughter for the New York City screening of the Reed Morano-directed drama. Oozing an old Hollywood glamour, she turned head in a black velvet strapless dress by Dolce & Gabbana that she paired with over-the-knee Christian Louboutin boots and black leather gloves.
