Earlier today, on Instagram, Blake Lively shared a picture of herself outdoors by a river in Bangkok breastfeeding her 6 month old daughter, James. The Gossip Girl alumni is currently in Thailand filming Mark Foresters latest movie, All I See is You. Lively and husband, Ryan Reynolds welcomed their first daughter, James, in December. The Age of Adaline star captioned the sweet photo “The PERKS of breastfeeding”. She also added the hashtags “#YesThatsRiceInMyHair, #BlondevsBronde, #BrondeJamesBronde” However, even with rice in her “bronde” locks you can tell that motherhood is a good look on Lively. In the photo the 27 year old actress was wearing a bikini and looking down at her daughter.
Ryan Reynold’s wife has talked about breastfeeding before, saying that it is a full time job especially while filming on location with little James. To Allure Lively joked “I’m like, driving down the road, pumping” She also opened up to the magazine saying “It’s not having it all; it’s about doing it all, but it’s dangerous to dilute that to a catchphrase… Having it all could be having a happy, healthy family, and you could be a mom who stays at home, and that is the most admirable thing you could do. Or it could be having a profession that you really believe in, and not having a family, and doing what fulfills you.” Although Lively had previously voiced her concerns to Stylist magazine “I remember leaving the hospital thinking: ‘I have no idea what I am doing. I have a life in my hands and I’m not equipped to do this, because I don’t have the knowledge I need to take care of the most precious, fragile thing in the world’.”
However, she has definitely taken over her maternal instinct and motherhood has definitely been agreeing with Blake. She also told Stylist magazine that the most surprising thing about becoming a mother was “realizing that it is all going to be okay”.
Blake Lively is scheduled to start shooting her next project, Woody Allen’s currently untitled new film in New York this August. Bruce Willis, Jesse Eisenberg, and Kristen Stewart are all reportedly in the film as well.
