Who is Blake Lively?

Born Blake Ellender Brown on August 25, 1987, in Los Angeles, California, she grew up in a family heavily involved in the entertainment industry.

Blake took acting classes from a young age and at the age of 10, she appeared in the 1998 film Sandman, directed by her father Ernie Lively.

After reprising her role in the sequel of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Blake starred in New York, I Love You and Paris, je t’aime.

Blake’s most acclaimed roles are arguably in The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, The Town and Green Lantern, which grossed a worldwide total of over $200 million (£148m).

She went on to star in Savages, replacing Jennifer Lawrence who dropped out to do The Hunger Games and after being named the new face of L’Oreal, she starred in The Age of Adaline and The Shallows.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively first met when they were both starring in Green Lantern in 2010, when the former was married to Scarlett Johansson and the latter had just ended things with Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley.

While Ryan’s divorce with Scarlett was being finalised, Blake was pictured with Leonardo DiCaprio and sparked dating rumours that in the end, were left unconfirmed. 

By 2012, Blake and Ryan were spending a lot more time together and were spotted taking trips.

The couple were married on the Boone Hall Plantation in South Carolina and in 2014, they attended the Met Gala together, their first red carpet appearance as husband and wife.

However, Blake and Ryan have been the subjects of a few split rumours in 2018, especially after Blake unfollowed Ryan and all other Instagram users she followed for a publicity stunt for her upcoming film A Simple Favor.

Ryan responded to this during an interview on Smallzy’s Surgery and said: ‘Yeah she did. Very sad about that. Definitely stings. It’s a terrible way to find out that I’ve been kicked out of the house, to be honest. Absolutely terrible.

‘“Mommy unfollowed Daddy on Instagram.” My child would just fart and then walk away,’ Ryan said.

Blake Lively kids

Blake and Ryan’s first daughter James was born on December 16, 2014 and this resulted in the pair taking on fewer roles.

While filming The Shallows, the couple announced they were expecting their second child and Ines was born on September 30, 2016.

The whole family made their first appearance together on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where Ryan was honoured with a star.

Keeping the Met Gala 2018 theme in mind, Blake Lively graced the red carpet in a gown that reportedly took 600 hours to make.

Ahead of the Met Gala, Blake provided a teaser of her outfit to her Instagram followers and showed off her clutch, which was embroidered with the initials of her family members.

The detailing featured four letters – a ‘B’ for herself, ‘R’ for husband Ryan Reynolds, J for 3-year-old daughter James, and I for daughter Ines.
