Blake Lively is a new mom and a true friend.

The A-lister stepped out to support a close pal just two days after it was announced she’d welcomed her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds.

Lively posted the pic of her friend’s big day on Instagram Sunday, captioning the shot: “Most beautiful bride on the planet. And the best friend I could ask for. @jessicarose617 thank you for being EVERYTHING. I love you.”

Lively, 29, and Reynolds, 39, said hello to their newborn in New York City earlier this week, thought no further details – including the baby’s sex and name – were announced at the time.

The couple’s latest little bundle of joy joins the pair’s first child, daughter James, 22 months.

Both Reynolds and Lively come from big families and have shared their hopes for a big family of their own.

Lively joked on the Today show in June: “I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders.”

When is the bride’s due date? Looks like a couple more months.

If they are going to announce that they had a baby, perhaps they could at least say what the sex is . . LOL. BIG secret. Give me a break.

I love the bride’s gown and headpiece, so unique, she looks beautiful. It’s a nice change from the usual white strapless dresses that every bride seems to go for.
@Idstep…Shut up.

Kristina on

That’s a true friend showing up to a wedding right after giving birth. Blake and Ryan are a great couple. I hope they make it through the Hollywood couple curse.

I am betting they had a boy and they will name him a unisex name to just like James.

Oh, so she’s still bleeding.
The bride looks to be due any day now too.

Oh my gosh! Don’t you people proof read your work?!?!?
It’s “though”, not “thought”. 3rd sentence from the bottom. Duh.

It was a boy and they named him Melissa.

Love the dress, love the headpiece. The bride looks classy and beautiful. Good for Blake – not everybody has the guts to go out in public two days after giving birth. Especially celebrities that are judged harshly by the public, and often feel that they need to appear perfect.
