Blake Lively is getting ready for baby number two with the help of Aunties Taylor and Emily!

Taylor Swift and Emily Blunt were among the guests at a private baby shower held for The Shallows star over the weekend, a source confirms to PEOPLE. And what makes it even better is that Lively’s husband Ryan Reynolds put it all together!

“Ryan orchestrated it all – Blake was so surprised!” an onlooker tells PEOPLE, adding that the actor dropped her off and picked her up. “It was a wonderful day — the weather was perfect and Blake was super happy to celebrate with her girlfriends.”

The three-hour celebration was held at the Bedford Post Inn in upstate New York on Saturday. Following the shower — which featured a hot chocolate bar — a few guests continued the celebration at Reynolds and Lively’s home, E! News reports.

Just a couple days earlier, Swift wished the 29-year-old expectant mother a happy birthday on Instagram with an adorable photo of the pals are cuddling with a koala.

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLAKE! You’re a wonderful friend, to humans and koalas alike. I absolutely love you,” she captioned the cute snap.

Lively, who announced she was expecting her second child in April, is happy to be expanding her family — and the Reynolds brood likely isn’t done growing.

“I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders,” the actress told Today earlier this summer. “You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children.”

The couple are parents to 20-month-old daughter James.

Auntie Taylor? Please never again.

Sarah on

At least it was a private shower. So sick of these sponsored events. But a whole article about a baby shower we know nothing about? Come on, People. And yes, Sam, I couldn’t agree more.

Nina g. on

She slithered into upstate NY ,did she? I am so amused that she can’t appear in Australia because Tom is campaigning for an Emmy and site of this two faced liar is bad for his chances…lol. She sure got out of Australia without being seen once she was exposed for the joke that she is

I thought showers were for first babies?

Amy Klick on

To Nina…ever considered there may be Visa issues…some countries actually have strict immigration laws and limit visits to a certain time frame….like 6 months expiration within 12 months. But then these things might be a little too complicated for you, comprehension wise.

Family Matters on

Get a life Nina. You sound like a teenager who’s jealous of Taylor. Move on. No Gigi showers are not only for the first baby. Maybe some people just don’t bother with it after the first.

Anon on

Nina sounds like she has psychological problems.

@Family Matters. Nina sounds like one of the middle aged fans of Tom who can’t get a date, so they latch onto an internet boyfriend.

Maria Ries on

I can’t believe how arrogant Nina g on her comments. Did Taylor Swift ever did you wrong? And on her being a liar are you holier than her? Are you perfect without sin and have never lied before. Hypocrite, please look at your life first before you make fun of somebody’s flaw of character. The only difference is Ms Swift life is scrutinized because she is in the lime light and yours is not and be thankful that your life is not her because I bet you would not want anybody scrutinizing your pathetic life in front of the whole world.
