As if we couldn’t love Blake Lively more, she goes and does something like this.

Our beloved “Gossip Girl” star, who recently celebrated the arrival of baby number four with hubby Ryan Reynolds, has shared a real-life mummy moment on her Instagram story.

As the glitzy world gathered for the Met’s annual gala, our girl Blake was busy embracing motherhood in the most down-to-earth way. Skipping the iconic red-carpeted stairs, she instead posted a snapshot of herself pumping breast milk in the bathroom.

Talk about keeping it real, right?

First Monday in May

The “Simple Favor” actress cheekily captioned the snap, “First Monday in May.” Which is a playful nod to the annual gala’s traditional date.

We love how Blake shows that even celeb mums have those everyday moments. Reminding us that we’re all in this motherhood journey together.

Keep shining, mama

Blake’s 2023 Met experience was a flip on last year’s show stopping appearance, when she made quite the entrance.

Stepping out as a co-chair for the glam event alongside hubs, Ryan, Blake was an absolute vision in a custom Versace gown.

The fashion-savvy mama had not one, but two looks, transforming right before our very eyes.

“I arrived copper and then like New York City classic architecture, I patinaed,” Blake said of the inspiration behind her show-stopping ensemble. “This dress is an homage to New York City and so many of the classic, iconic buildings.”
