Blake Lively is expecting her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds.

The actress announced the news in a blog post on her lifestyle site, Preserve.

At first, the post simply celebrates "all the expecting mothers out there," as a photo set shows a handful of pregnant women enjoying a fruitful fall picnic. "Today we celebrate them. With food to fill their tummies (as if that needs more filling), presents to soothe their tired (and swollen) soles, toys to warm their baby's souls, projects to provoke them, and decorations to inspire creativity and merriment in all."

Then, a final photo shows Lively holding her baby bump, shot by brother Eric Lively.

Lively and Reynolds, who met while shooting the 2011 movie The Green Lantern, have been married for two years. This will be the first child for both actors.

The site also noted that the upcoming month's content "will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives."

Preserve at its core is about family.

Family is the single word our founder, Blake, built this home on.

We have something for men, for women, for the old, but we realized we don't have anything for the new.

With family on our mind, we looked to the origin of it all — to the women in our lives who are right there, at that special moment, at the creation of family.

Today we celebrate them. With food to fill their tummies (as if that needs more filling), presents to soothe their tired (and swollen) soles, toys to warm their baby's souls, projects to provoke them, and decorations to inspire creativity and merriment in all.

We had too much fun with this. Because there's so much to share, we break up our first ever Preserve Celebration into multiple parts. In the upcoming days we will bring even more treats and fun. The entire next month will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives.

Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there.

And thank you for being a part of our Preserve family.
