GloZell Green’s Surrogate Is ‘Having Complications’: ‘Her Pelvis Is Actually Splitting’

06/25/2016 at 05:05 PM ET

GloZell Green‘s baby is almost here –– and she couldn’t be more excited!

“Those that don’t know that I’ve gone through so many IVF treatments and I’ve gone through six cycles to get this child, that’s on its way via surrogate, biological child — and it’s been great,” the YouTube star, who is expecting a baby girl in August with husband, Kevin Simon, shares.

However, Green, 43, admits that the journey has also been “scary.”

“You try not to think about the negative thoughts of: ‘Okay we’ve made it this far and we’re so close’ because anything could happen,” she explains. “So I tell myself to celebrate all the milestones.”

06/24/2016 at 12:00 PM ET

Blake Lively obviously isn’t letting pregnancy affect her style sense in a negative way — in fact, she’s completely embracing it, as evidenced by her head-turning recent ensembles at Cannes.

“It’s fun to dress up in a big sparkly number and a Cinderella-looking dress,” the 28-year-old expectant star of the thriller The Shallows told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle exclusively for The Jess Cagle Interview video series.

“I came home to my baby [18-month-old daughter James] and she was like, ‘Wow.’ You know, because you just look like a Disney movie,” Lively says. “It’s fun to get to do that. Because when you’re a little girl you play dress-up, and now I get to do it in big-girl life too.

“There are lots of variables these days, but [it’s] fun to dress [under] the circumstances,” she adds with a laugh.
