Okay, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’s baby girl officially has competition for the most genetically blessed baby in Hollywood honor: red carpet goddess Blake Lively is pregnant!

Blake announced Monday the news that she and Ryan Reynolds  (hot dad alert!) are expecting their first child via her Preserve lifestyle website in an fall-themed blog post titled “Falling For Family.” She shared several photos of pregnant friends at a gorgeously-decorated party (maybe a baby shower?) and wrote:

"Preserve at its core is about family. Family is the single word our founder, Blake built this home on.

We have something for men, for women, for the old, but we realized, we don’t have anything for the new. With family on our mind, we looked to the origin of it all — to the women in our lives who are right there, at that special moment; at the creation of family.

Today we celebrate them. With food to fill their tummies (as if that needs more filling), presents to soothe their tired (and swollen) soles, toys to warm their baby’s souls, projects to provoke them, and decorations to inspire creativity and merriment in all. We had too much fun with this. Because there’s so much to share, we break up our first ever Preserve Celebration into multiple parts. In the upcoming days we will bring even more treats and fun. The entire next month will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives.

Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there.

And thank you for being a part of our Preserve family."

And then in a move that is Blake’s signature cryptic and hush-hush style, she slipped in the below photo of her growing bump to finish the post. And of course, she’s literally glowing.

It doesn’t come as a surprise to us that Blake is pregnant, or that the actress and lifestyle curator announced her pregnancy in such a stylish and holiday-appropriate way. It seems like Blake and Ryan, who wed in 2012, have had babies on the brain from the start.

“If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would,” she told Marie Claire in an August interview.

Congratulations to the couple!

How did you announce your pregnancy?
