She’s got good genes! Blake Lively’s Gossip Girl costar Jessica Szohr gushed to Us Weekly at a TCA panel for her upcoming USA series Complications that Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ newborn daughter is stunning.
Szohr, who played Vanessa alongside Lively’s Serena in the hit CW show, told Us she has yet to meet Lively’s mini-me, but she’s seen pictures and “sent her love.”
“I have seen pictures. And of course, I didn’t expect anything else — beautiful!” Szohr told Us. “Blake has a very motherly tone to her. Even when we were on set. She’s gonna be a great mom. I have no doubt.”
As previously reported by Us, the Age of Adaline star, 27, welcomed her first child with Reynolds just before the New Year. “The baby came early but everyone is happy and healthy,” a source told Us at the time.
And while her former costar is busy being a first-time mom, Szohr is experimenting with her edgiest role yet. In Complications, the Internship actress plays Gretchen Polk, a lesbian ER nurse.
“For me, this is a more mature [role than Gossip Girl] — Vanessa and Gretchen are both go-getters who say what’s on their minds, which is what I like,” she told Us. “But Gretchen, she’s had a really rough past and she’s trying to make a better future and a better path for her. It’s a much more mature, edgier role for me.”
