This was one very glamorous announcement.

Blake Lively might have just made the most glamorous pregnancy announcement of all time after stepping out on the red carpet and unveiling her baby bump in a dazzling debut.
Indeed the Hollywood starlet had kept mum on her pregnancy up until she attended the premiere of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu with her husband Ryan Reynolds on May 2, and her stunning look made jaws drop for more than one reason.

Lively, 31, and Ryan, who stars in the new Pokemon film, looked more loved up than ever as they smiled for the cameras while Blake cradled her burgeoning bump.
The pair are already parents to James, four and Inez, two.
Since welcoming their children, Lively and Reynolds have shifted their focus from acting to family in recent years after buying a home outside of Hollywood in Bedford, New York.
They've also made efforts to keep their kids out of the public eye for the most part, apart from a rare public appearance in 2016 when Ryan unveiled his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Ryan spoke about his young daughter's excitement for his new role in the Pokemon movie to Good Morning America earlier this week, saying: "My daughter James is losing her mind over it... She's never been interested in a movie I've done ever."
He then added: "She made us watch it a hundred times in a row. So I was kind of in, even if the script was literally made of old spit, I would have been like, 'Yup, I'm doing it. I'm in,'" he said. "I need more of that validation from my child."

The mum-of-two has been candid about her pregnancies in the past, sharing her incredible 27 kg weight loss journey on social media.
"Turns out you can't lose the 61 lbs you gained during pregnancy by just scrolling through Instagram and wondering why you don't look like all the bikini models," she wrote alongside a stunning picture of her next to her personal trainer.
Fellow mums took inspiration from Bake's post, writing: "I'm 2 months postpartum and just recently resolved to stop the negative self-deprecating thinking—a little kindness to myself to allow a pathway to healthiness. And you just became my poster child. Time and effort. Thank you!"
Blake has also been frank about learning to love her body after pregnancy, previously telling E! News: "It's all a process. You know after the second kid it's really different," she told E! News. "So this is not my normal body, but I like it."
She added: "I'm learning to love my body in every iteration, and I think that's hard for women, and so I learned a lot."
We're excited to see Blake's journey with baby number three - we're sure it'll be just as inspiring!
