Spotted: First-time parents-to-be Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds! The A-list couple took a stroll through Lake Placid, N.Y. last Wednesday, Oct. 1, five days before Lively revealed her pregnancy on her lifestyle website Preserve.

Lively, 27, looked snug in an oversized, autumn-appropriate gray wool coat by Smythe, which she accessorized with multiple layers of scarves, boots, and a ladylike box purse. The Gossip Girl alum's dirty blonde locks fell down to her shoulders naturally, as she went incognito in a pair of studded shades with no makeup on her face.

Future dad Reynolds, 37, guided his pregnant wife along the street for their walk as she hooked her arm through his. The Bedford, N.Y. residents were staying in the quaint and scenic upstate New York town for a romantic getaway, a source told Us Weekly.

Lively was slightly more covered up for the outing, compared to the form-fitting Sam & Lavi skirt and blouse that she wore in her baby announcement. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants actress used her pregnancy news as an opportunity to celebrate "all the expecting mothers out there," and "that special moment at the creation of family." Lively added that her lifestyle website, in the month of October, "will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives." See Blake's sweet baby announcement.

The bubbly blonde told Marie Claire in its September 2014 issue that she and her husband were anticipating parenthood soon. "I gotta get started," the star said. "If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would."

Lively has no new upcoming projects on the horizon, after filming her upcoming romantic drama, The Age of Adaline, this past spring. Meanwhile, her hubby has three movies set for release next year.

"She's a planner," one source told Us. Added another insider: "She wanted to get her work in solid shape before taking time off to have a family."
