Does Blake Lively look pregnant while doing re-shoots in LA, yes or no?


Here are some photos of Blake Lively yesterday in LA. She was photographed in the midst of doing some reshoots for her latest film, The Shallows. She filmed this movie last fall, and the first trailer came out for the film several weeks ago. I assumed the film was well into post-production, but here they are, doing reshoots. I wonder if there was a problem? I wonder if Blake Lively-stuck-on-a-rock is a solid enough premise for a full-length movie? I wonder if the rock had more on-screen charisma than Lively?

But that’s not the point of this post. The point is… I think she’s knocked up again. I realize that in most of these photos, she holding a bulky towel/robe against her mid-section and you can’t really tell. Except you can. Her hips look wider, her breasts look bigger and at certain angles, it really does look like she has a baby bump. Blake and Ryan Reynolds welcomed baby James over the holidays in 2014, meaning James is about 15 months old. To me, Blake looks about four months pregnant in these photos. So… the math sort of works. And considering how much Ryan has flat-out loved fatherhood, I think the chances are pretty good that they would have decided to get pregnant again right away.

Anyway… how are they going to explain it in the reshoots when Blake is all covered up after she’s wearing a skimpier suit in the original footage? Here’s the trailer:

    Imho, yes, totally.

  2. tracking says:

    She does, in fact, though you never know with pic angles etc.

  3. cakecakecake says:

    yup, she looks pregnant to me.

  4. angie says:

    Soooo preggy girl!!!!

  7. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I hate this sort of speculation, but since you asked, yes, I think her upper tummy is sticking out in a pregnant way. Boy that movie looks hideous.

    • Lou says:

      We’ll see, but I think it is rather intriguing. After all, the director is Jaume Collet Serra and she is quite expressive.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        It just scared the wits out of me in 90 seconds, is what I mean, but I’m a super chicken. 🐔

      • V4Real says:

        So we get a half naked woman stranded on a rock 200 yards from shore with a shark circling her. That’s one way to draw in the male audience.

      • Starkiller says:

        The same Jaume Collet-Serra (who is male, btw) responsible for such cinematic masterpieces as House of Wax, Orphan, and Non-Stop? Okay.

      • Prince Valiant says:

        Strarkiller: I know very well that Jaume Collet Serra is a HE. The SHE is BL.

    • Erinn says:

      Mm – me too. She does SEEM like she could very well be pregnant – I looked back to the white house dinner photos – and the bunchy style of her gown could have been hiding an early belly.

    • Lizzie McGuire says:

      It looks so beautifully shot so props to the cinematographer, that last scene in the trailer will hunt me forever. It’s one of my unrealistic fears so thanks Blake for torturing my poor soul. As for being pregnant, yup that looks like a baby bump.

    • kai says:

      I think this could be really cool, but I’m not convinced Blake has the charisma/talent to pull off a one-man show. To be fair, I’ve never seen her in anything aside from Gossip Girl.

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        She was great in ‘The Age of Adeline,’ IMO..I’ve seen all of GG (cheesy acting but fun show), so I was more impressed with her after seeing the film

    • SKF says:

      Yeah shark horror movies p*ss me off. Spielberg regrets Jaws now because of the negative impact it had on sharks. We do not taste good to sharks. We do not have nearly the amount of high-level protein and fat they require. When sharks attack humans it is a case of mistaken identity. Very few people are killed by sharks. More people are killed annually by cows or by tripping over. When I went cage diving with the great whites the scientists on the boat told us that they no longer see the 6m Great Whites. Mostly only 3m now. That they are likely to become extinct in the next few decades. Our shark populations are being decimated and most people don’t give a crap due to dislike and fear based around silly movies like this. I actually think it is damaging and irresponsible for people to continue to make shark attack movies because they contribute to this issue.

      • ginas says:

        I know what you’re saying, but Sharks are terrifying, plain and simple. I think when it comes down to it, humans out of their natural habitat fighting against something on it’s home turf is a concept that works.

        I can’t think of another animal which is as effective, except for the lions in The Ghost and the Darkness.

        And I think people do care about the sharks.

  8. Pitag says:

    I just want to say, that rock looks awesome.

  9. vivivi says:

    Totally pregnant. I thought is as soon as I saw the pictures.

  10. Alessio says:

    it’s very common for studio films to do reshoots, and i think age of adaline proved she can be solid even opposite actual actors, and yes, she def looks pregnant, but maybe it’s just the wind?

  11. DazLondon says:

    I’m seeing flashbacks to the end of that Simpsons episode called ‘Homer the Whopper’.

  12. paolanqar says:

    OMG. yes. pregnant for sure, around 5-6 months already I’d say.
    I like Ryan, I saw him in interviews and he’s really funny. Blake though is a snoozefest but to each their own.

  13. OrigialTessa says:

    Yeah, she’s not just pregnant, but seemingly into her 4th or 5th month. There’s no way of even hiding it at this point, it’s showing everywhere.

  14. Sayrah says:


  15. Miss V says:

    Definitely preggers! There’s no doubt about it.

  16. MB says:

    Yes, totally pregnant, and I agree with Paolanqar that she looks closer to 5 or 6 months. I didn’t show until at least 20 weeks with both my pregnancies (belly, I mean. My boobs and hips got wider much earlier). She is very slim, but looks bigger in all these pics.

    • kkhou says:

      I showed a lot earlier with my second pregnancy, though, in all areas, even though my weight gain was exactly the same as my first. So it could still be earlier than 5-6 months. It just depends on the individual. (Just defending those of us with no core strength after childbirth, lol).

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Totally agree with the month estimate. Definitely closer to or at 6 mos. Didn’t he or she or they say they wanted many children at some point?

  17. Nev says:

    Age of Adaline was a beautiful movie. I loved her in it.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      Me too! I thought the cinematography was beautiful, and she’s in practically every single scene so she carries the entire film.

    • Sarah_UK says:

      I really enjoyed it too! Although maybe that’s because I watched it while flying from London to Las Vegas and I was so excited I would’ve enjoyed any film… :-) No, I joke, because I also watched Hot Pursuit on the same flight and even my excitement couldn’t make up for the fact that film was (unfortunately) dire!
      I haven’t seen her in anything else and I always hear that she’s a bad actress but I thought she was really good in it, I really like her!

    • Jayna says:

      I did too. She did a great job. It was a beautiful movie.

    • Naya says:

      I liked the first half and was somewhat impressed with her. But then that plot deteriorated into silliness (the dad/son twist; the car accident that corrects her system) and we were laughing by the end.

    • islandwalker says:

      I thought she carried that film really well.

  18. Tess says:

    God I hope so. Maybe then she’ll stop trying to “act”

  19. Pixi says:

    I love shark movies and I love Blake. Will watch this with my best friend and a bottle of wine…

    • Pitag says:

      Can I go it too?

    • Birdix says:

      Oh me too! Neutral about Blake, but love shark movies–giggled when the shark appeared in the trailer. Plus the beach I grew up on had rocks like that I would make into playhouses.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Oh my God, I never got over Jaws. If I’m swimming in the ocean and a piece of seaweed touches my leg, I practically elevate onto the top of the water. Yiiiiiiiiiiiiiooooooowwwww!

      • lucy2 says:

        Me too GNAT. I work on the ocean block, and early last summer was up on the beach when a guy caught a shark while surf fishing. He let it go, but I didn’t go in the water all season.

    • islandwalker says:

      I worked on the reefs in the Bahamas, frequently had shark visitors. They are oft maligned. I love them all but bull sharks. That said, I’m in!

    • Melibea says:

      Yes, me too!

  20. Bettyrose says:

    Definitely preggers. Hey, what was that movie where she played a sex toy to two best friends and basically had no lines except her voice over descriptions of the sex? Maybe this will be better than that one?

  21. Barrett says:

    Oh yeah at first glance I saw these on daily mail and thought she looked wide (for her normal perfect figure)! So I’m total pregnancy!

  22. Greenieweenie says:

    Maybe baby girl James will have a brother, say, baby boy Rose. #trendsetter

    • Sam says:

      Except they named their daughter after Ryan’s dad who passed away from Parkisons. They were honoring his dad not being trendsetters. Nice try though.

      • Greenieweenie says:

        Doesn’t mean James-for-a-girl hasn’t been hipster trending for the past two years. I’m sure plenty of Adysens, Taylors and Jaxsons were all named after someone special too.

        Just a suggestion so they can get ahead of the next trend.

      • Lee says:

        Are you a relative of them? Sorry if I ask, but you are so invested in them, I see you commenting almost everywhere articles about these two , from People, to dailymail…Kudos for this, I am usually so lazy I only read or scroll down or write ‘+1′ to say I agree.

      • Greenieweenie says:

        Since Sam cares so much, here’s both Blake’s reason for the name (surprise, not after Ryan’s dad) as well as discussion of its growing popularity–from a website I enjoy.

      • Misti says:


        Wow! U must follow Blake and Ryan a lot too.
        I mean you can actually tell who frequents their posts, plus the different websites they may or may not visit!! That’s some investment. Kudos to you .


        Ryan did say she was named for his father who died after battling Parkinson’s disease for 20+ years. But OK

      • kkkkkkk says:

        Its still a hideously ugly name to give a little girl, sorry sentimentality doesn’t excuse it.

      • what says:

        “Wow! U must follow Blake and Ryan a lot too.”
        Misti: I don’t think Lee follows Blake and Ryan. Sam is obsessed with Blake. The comments are always the same. Sam is a little strange… I remember when she said Blake is better than Gisele. LOL. That comment is everywhere…

      • Barbara says:

        what part from the article you posted yourself you skipped? The first part where it says ‘Blake has since commented that it’s a family name’. Family name meaning a name being passed through in the family. The fact she comments on her own male name just shows she’s comfortable having a boy’s name, which would only support the first reason for the decision, which you said yourself by linking an article: family name. Family name in this case, being Ryan’s father, as he confirmed with all letters. And the homage was all that much sweet because had they had waited for a boy – as many suggested – his father wouldn’t have met the kid, as he died before they had a second kid (which could also be a girl, btw).

    • Jayna says:

      Her name is Blake, a typically male name. She’s 30 years old. and I doubt it was a trendsetting name back then And maybe she loved having a typically male name and did the same for her child, and also named her child after his father. I remember a model, who is around 30 now, whose name is James.

      • Sam says:

        There is obviously more than one Sam commenting. I only comment on this website and even then there is more than one Sam who comments on this website. And no they didn’t want to start a trend. It was on this site that I read Ryan saying they named their daughter after his father. But spin the narrative however you want.

      • Misti says:

        @Sam – Don’t sweat it.
        You don’t owe anyone an explanation of where/how/when/what you post.
        Something tells me if you were bashing Blake or Ryan, there won’t be any complaints then.

      • me says:

        That model was James King, now an actress who goes by Jamie King.

    • Sam says:

      @MISTI thank you for having my back and also providing info in regards to Ryan saying they named baby James after his father lol People just want to believe what they want and not look at the factual information

    • hogtowngooner says:

      That would be pretty awkward considering that’s ScarJo’s daughter’s name! ;-)

  23. Sam says:

    Yes she’s definitely pregnant. And I’m glad her and Ryan aren’t the type of couple that likes to flaunt it every chance they get. Heck I don’t even know what their daughter looks like! Good on them for being protective of their family and keeping their personal lives private.

  24. Dids says:

    OMG she does looks pregnant… The weather in L.A. cannot be that cold..

    • Magnoliarose says:

      Near the water it can be. The Pacific Ocean is freezing sometimes, it’s not like the Atlantic.

      • Dids says:

        I’m from Quebec…. You referencing the Atlantic as being warner doesnt work ;) But i get your point !! :)

  25. Jayna says:

    Aw, I feel sorry for her. She’s trying to keep her pregnancy under wraps right now and not announce it, but then she got called back for reshoots and these photos get out.

  26. Magnoliarose says:

    I think 4 to 5 months. She’s tall so it could be 5.

  27. Anon says:

    I literally saw these photos when they were thumbnail size from the dailymail on my small phone screen and instantly was like “Awww she’s pregs again!”

  28. GingerCrunch says:

    Totes McGoats preggers.

  29. kennedy says:

    “I wonder if the rock had more on-screen charisma than Lively?”

    ^ HAHAHA. Love this.

    Don’t wonder – just know. The rock DEFINITELY has more charisma than Lively. So does The Rock, of course.

  30. kri says:

    Oh yes. She’s hatching something (and it ain’t an Oscar).

  31. serena says:

    That surely looks like a baby bump.

  32. someone says:


  33. colleen says:

    Often I think it’s ridiculous, the constant baby bump watch and assumption of pregnancy, but in this case I would definitely wager that she is pregnant. Not only by appearance, but the fact that she seems to be trying very hard to cover it.

  34. bcgirl says:

    Haha “The Shallows”,
    so the movie is about her and Ryan?

    • LOL says:

      Yes! Some people think it’s about sharks, but it’s about herself! Makeup, paparazzi, Preserve, cute outfits, etc.

  35. Milly says:

    Perfect timing to sell her new movie! Blake is a smart business woman: appealing to the minivan majority with a new pregnancy will hopefully give this movie the boost it needs to do well at the box office; seeing as most of her other movies have bombed, she really needed a strategic PR move like this.

    • Sam says:

      Her only movie that has bombed was The Green Lantern and that wasn’t her fault, obviously. All her other films have been moderate successes at the box office so I don’t know where you’ve gotten your information from.

    • Sofie says:

      Yeah, she got pregnant just to promote the movie.

  36. Cindy says:

    I don’t care if she is pregnant because I just watched that trailer and I must see this movie right now. I am a scary movie junkie and this one looks amazing. If it’s as good as it looks I will stop making fun of Blake and eat all my words.:)

    • Lulu says:

      Agreed. Just watched the trailer and my heart dropped. I love being scared and I have an irrational shark fear so this is really going to freak me out. Can’t wait!

  37. sequinedheart says:

    she is totally up the duff! no doubt about it. Waiting for that gooey ultrafiltered preserve-esque instagram post.

  38. AtlLady says:

    If she is pregnant, that might explain that atrocious bathrobe thing she wore to the White House.
    Ryan – Blake, we need to leave for the White House.
    Blake – Ryan, I’ve been throwing up all day and don’t have time to get ready.
    Ryan – Well, I am NOT showing up stag. Get your butt in the limo and put your make-up on while we ride.
    Blake – But, I’m in my BATHROBE!
    Ryan – People will think you are being trendy. NOW MOVE IT!

  39. iheartgossip says:

    Is NOT announcing your pregnant the new black? This trend is tired

    • Alyce says:

      As someone who has had a miscarriage in the past, I totally get not announcing. If I ever get pregnant again then I’m waiting as long as humanly possible to announce. I don’t think there is anything wrong with waiting.

  40. J-Who says:

    Am I the only one that noticed SJPs story? LOL. I like how she looks with a little weight on her. It’s about time. It’s also about time she retires the black velvet eyeliner and lighten up her eyes a bit. I feel for her on the no heels thing. My feet hurt from high heels, too. All in all, I like her changes.

  41. what's inside says:

    Yeppers, I think there is a bun in the oven.

  42. Michelle says:

    I’ve been wondering for a while if she was pregnant again. She looked really pale and tired at the Deadpool premiere, like she might be suffering from morning sickness. Which would align with her being 4-5 months pregnant now. They’ve both said they want to have lots of children and it’s pretty common to have kids 1.5-2 yeara apart.

  43. Tredd says:

    Yep. Pregnant.
    And let’s not forget: Cherokee
    *rolling my eyes*

  44. jesb says:

    Totally pregnant but more importantly who in the world thought it was a good idea to let Blake lively carry a whole movie a la Cast Away? Are you kidding me. I’ll wait to it’ll on demand.

  45. Barbara says:

    I agree, totally with child.

  46. Anare says:

    No disrespect intended but why do we talk about her? I don’t understand her fame.

  47. Amberica says:

    Confirmed pregnant on PEOPLE!
