The actress, who stars in the upcoming drama The Rhythm Section, appeared on Good Morning America to chat about her newest film and life as a mom of three young children.
Actress Blake Lively Admits Going From a Parent of 2 to a Parent of 3 Is ‘a Lot’
In short, life with three kids is a bit hectic, Lively concluded. When asked what it was like to be a mom of three children under the age of six, the proud mom told GMA co-host Michael Strahan, “It’s like going from two to 3,000. [We] have so many children. It’s pretty [crazy]. We’re outnumbered. It’s a lot.”
She continued, “People say that from two to three, it’s the same, it’s kind of easy. Those people do not have three kids. It is crazy. But I’m here!”
On January 27, Lively made her first red carpet appearance since welcoming her third daughter into the world for the New York City premiere of The Rhythm Section.
The Gossip Girl star wore a gorgeous black velvet gown by Dolce & Gabbana paired with arm-length leather gloves, Christian Louboutin boots and a stunning Loraine Schwartz necklace with South Sea pearls, diamonds, and a 50-carat Columbian emerald.
The mom of three also wasn’t shy about revealing that a corset completed the look. “Corsets make you feel like you’re on the brink of having it together,” she told People at the premiere. “But, you know, this is not real life. I gotta get this thing off!”
Lively and Reynolds have kept mum about the name of their newborn baby girl. Reynolds joked while a guest on Today last month, “We’re gonna be original, and all the letters in her name are silent. I want to give her something to push against in life.”

When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
