Blake Lively didn’t let her baby bump stop her from snagging some great holiday deals. The expectant actress was seen shopping sans her actor beau Ryan Reynolds in Westport, Connecticut, Sunday, E! Online reported.

While Lively, 27, was not seen sporting any designer shopping bags during her east coast outing, only groceries, she was seen getting in the holiday spirit. According to the site, the former “Gossip Girl” star and mom-to-be also purchased a Christmas tree. Perhaps the tree will find its way into her and Reynold’s Bedford, New York, home.

In true Lively fashion, she wore nothing but the best during her casual outing. Despite her fashionable ensemble and uncharacteristically bare face, her most buzzworthy accessory was none other than her baby bump, which was visible under her snug, grey sweater and unbuttoned winter coat.


So when is Blake Lively due? Following the actress’ most recent outing, fans have begun to question when she might deliver. According to a speculative report from Bustle, she is not due to give birth until the spring of 2015. Lively has been infamously quiet about her due date, only commenting she will welcome her bundle of joy with Reynolds, 38, “next year” during her appearance at Martha Stewart’s American Made Summit in New York City Nov. 8.

“I’m packing heavy down here now,” Lively said after Stewart commented on her bump.

She previously spoke out about her thoughts on motherhood during her first red carpet appearance while pregnant at the God’s Love We Deliver, Golden Heart Awards in New York City Oct. 16. “It’s something that I’ve always wanted ever since I was a little girl,” Lively told Us Weekly. “I never knew what I wanted to do for a living, but I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I had come from a big family, so it was always important to me. So it’s just the excitement of that finally being here.”

Lively announced her pregnancy on her lifestyle website Preserve in October. Lively and Reynolds wed in 2012 after a year of dating. The duo first met while co-starring in the 2011 superhero film “Green Lantern.” The child will be the first for both.
