Serena is heading to the suburbs! An insider tells Us Weekly that Gossip Girl star Blake Lively and boyfriend of six months Ryan Reynolds want to live together and "have been looking around different areas of Connecticut" for a house.
The couple had domesticity on the brain April 12, when they strolled through the upscale town of New Canaan (located an hour away from NYC). "They checked out a lot of home decor stores," says an onlooker of the pair, who peeked inside china boutique the Whitney Shop and jewelry store Pennyweights.
Adds a second insider, "They love getting out of the city and appreciate a slower pace." And though Lively, 24 — who ended her five-month dalliance with Leonardo DiCaprio, 37, in September — and the Safe House actor, 35, haven't signed on the dotted line, they are already well practiced at playing house.
Reynolds put the L.A.-area home he shared with ex-wife Scarlett Johansson, 27, on the market in February and now spends much of his time at Lively's pad in NYC.
"Ryan is practically living with her already," says one insider. "When he's at her apartment, it feels like home."
