Every time we hear about Blake Lively it’s either about her fighting a shark or being the best mum ever.
And this is all about the latter.
Blake has been speaking to Marie Claire magazine in the UK about how she will approach parenting her child.
The amazing thing here is that Blake will give her kid the choice as to whether she wants to join the entertainment industry or not.
Currently pregnant with Ryan Reynolds’s second child, Blake said ”My husband and I chose a profession and a side effect of that is your personal life is public. Our child hasn’t had the opportunity to choose whether or not she wants her personal life to be public or not.”
Lively went on to say that they would like to give their kid as much ”normality as possible, we want her to have a childhood like we had. We can’t really throw her into the lion’s den that is L.A., not that we really want to.”
She made it clear that she never wanted to be famous as child, she wanted to be more like her family who worked in a restaurant but that’s not how her life planned out ”I didn’t want to be an actor, because they were all doing it,” she shared. “When you’re the youngest of five kids, you think, Who am I? If this is who they are, and they’re shaping who I am so much, then who would I be? You strive for your own identity.”
While the Lively kids roots were planted in Hollywood, her husband Reynolds had a really normal upbringing in Vancouver and that’s how they want their child to live.
She said ”We want our kids to have the same normal life that we had. “We don’t ever want to rob them of what we had, because we’d feel really selfish.”
Greatest parents ever.
