Spotted on her website Preserve this morning, former Gossip Girl actress announced in a letter Preserve Celebrations: Falling for Family that she is pregnant with her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds.

Preserve hinted at the news earlier on Monday with a photo of baby clothes hung out on a clothing line. The announcement includes a photo of Lively taken by her brother Eric with what is already a moderate sized baby bump. Happy to share the spotlight, the actress includes photos of other pregnant women, ecstatic and having a good time. The website reads:

“We had too much fun with this. Because there’s so much to share, we break up our first ever Preserve Celebration into multiple parts. In the upcoming days we will bring even more treats and fun. The entire next month will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives. Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there. And thank you for being a part of our Preserve family.”

Lively had been vocal about their desire to have children, at one pointing telling Marie Claire, “If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would.” (Ouch.) Pregnancy rumors had been floating around for a while, and in July Lively said that Reynolds is “going to be a great father and leader and patriach–he’s so meant to be all those things.”

And Reynolds? He told Details last year, “We’d love a big family. We both come from big families — my parents did four, Blake’s did five. A lot of people say it’s crazy, but we’ll only know when we’re there, you know? We’ll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think.”
