Blake Lively‘s going to need a bigger bed! The Gossip Girl alum revealed her Christmas celebrations include a seven-hour-long family bed session — but since the actress is now heavily pregnant, it might be a bit of a squash this year!
Lively spoke about her family Christmas traditions in a video for The Kit website, which was posted on Monday, Dec. 22. And while most families like to hunker down and spend some quality time together over the holidays, Livey revealed her clan takes family togetherness to the next level!
“Christmas is really just about being with family so we never leave the house,” Lively told the outlet. “We’re together all day whether we’re making gingerbread houses or making cookies or sitting around watching movies, all piled up.”
“I don’t know how my family does this but everybody gets in the same bed, somehow we just spend seven hours a day just chatting, it’s really nice to have that time” she added.
This year is an important Christmas for Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds, as it marks their last pre-child celebrations before the much anticipated birth of their baby in early 2015. And the Age of Adaline actress is eager to have everything just right, from the food on the table to the perfect Christmas aroma!
“To me the smell of Christmas is spruce, because growing up in California, when those candles would come out, it was the only way that we got any kind of a winter. Cookies I get year round, pine I only get at Christmas,” she said excitedly.
