It’s been over a decade since Blake Lively first came into our lives as a mid-noughties IT girl.
Since her Gossip Girl days, Lively has gone on to star in a bunch of movies and to build a family with her husband Ryan Reynolds.
Now Lively, 30, has spoken candidly to Cosmopolitan Australia (issue on sale Monday, 9 April) about what it’s really like balancing her career with her young family.
When Cosmo asked Lively what surprised her about being a mother, the mum-of-two told the publication at first she didn’t feel “equipped” to be a mother.
“Before, I remember thinking: ‘I have no idea what I’m doing! I have a life in my hands and I’m not equipped to do this, because I don’t have the knowledge I need to take care of the most precious, fragile thing in the world – my baby’,” she explained.
“It felt like being a passenger on board a plane and being told: ‘By the way, you are now going to be piloting the plane’.”
