Blake Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds are already parents to three daughters, James, Inez and Betty , they welcomed their fourth child in February this year. Since then, Blake has kept a low profile on social media, save for a few posts to promote her new line of non-alcoholic concoctions (a nice addition to her husband’s airline gin brand), Betty Buzz.
But over the Easter weekend, the star shared some sweet family photos, including a poolside snap in the exact same swimsuit photo Blake shared last summer. Known to be a fan of light-hearted, relatable Insta posts of all things glossy and curated, Lively may be going back to her bikinis and cut-out onesies, but that’s far from the postpartum throwback culture example. Instead, she looks like a happy, no-makeup mom enjoying her free time with her growing family.
Blake’s post is a broader move from the unrealistic demands placed on motherhood in the public eye to a more relevant view of the reality of the months Part of the postpartum transformation was shared by celebrities, including Ashley Graham, who has been open and candid about everything from leaking breasts to stretch marks since becoming a mother.
