Actress makes first appearance since announcement

Remember how stunning Blake Lively looked in the photo she used to announce her pregnancy? Well, it seems the 27-year-old actress has no intention of dropping the standards now. Making her first red carpet appearance since the happy announcement, Blake dazzled onlookers in a floor length sparkling gown that hugged her burgeoning bump.

Looking radiant at the God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards yesterday, the actress wearing a Michael Kors design posed for paparazzi and clearly enjoyed showing off her beautiful new figure and why wouldn't she? Pregnancy clearly suits the Gossip Girl star and it seems she's set to enjoy every minute of the exciting journey.

Husband, and father-to-be, actor Ryan Reynolds was nowhere to be seen however. But Blake didn't fly solo at the charity awards for long, quickly mingling with Vogue editor Anna Wintour, designer Michael Kors, who created many of the stunning gowns for award attendees, and fellow actresses Halle Berry and Bette Midler.

Blake's non-stop smiling suggests that her bump is all the company she needs right now anyway!
