She glows! Blake Lively made her first public appearance since announcing she's expecting on Thursday, Oct. 16. The Gossip Girl alum — and her baby bump! — struck a pose at the God's Love We Deliver, Golden Heart Awards in New York City.

The blonde mom-to-be looked chic as always in a floor-length pink, tan, and purple flowered gown. "I'm going to amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier, cause that’s all that fits!" Lively told Us Weekly at the event.

Ryan Reynold's wife announced she was expecting with an equally glamorous bump photo on her site Preserve on Oct. 6.

In a more recent post, the Age of Adaline actress looked forward to what's to come with her bundle of joy, joking about "experiencing the joy of 3am screams, seemingly impossible amounts of poop and having a favorite shirt covered in reflux."
