When rumors surfaced last week that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds had welcomed their new baby to the family, people started keeping an eagle eye on the parents’ Instagram accounts. Why: The couple hasn’t shared any details, but the people want to know! Reynolds has kept quiet on Instagram since the reported birth, but Lively took to the platform yesterday. And it seems she’s already gone on her first post-baby outing. She shared a photo of her attending a friend’s wedding, just days after giving birth.
In the pic, Lively kisses the beautiful bride, Jessica Snyder, on the cheek. She writes in the caption how excited she is for her friend, “Most beautiful bride on the planet,” she writes. “And the best friend I could ask for.” Snyder looks incredible in her embellished gown, and Lively is positively glowing.
Lively followed up that pic with a close-up of the sparkly details on Snyder’s gown. Can we talk about Snyder’s beautiful rings, too?
Snyder and her new hubby married at the Tribeca Rooftop in Manhattan, and it looks like Lively and the other guests had an amazing time. Doctors have previously told SELF that it’s good for new moms to take a break in the early days and weeks of postpartum. An hour or two away from a newborn baby won’t harm the child, and moms are encouraged to get back to activities they enjoy—like socializing—as soon as they feel up for it. It can help them recharge in those often draining postpartum days.
Congrats to Jessica! And Blake, we’re glad to see you’re doing well!
