She only announced the news of her pregnancy earlier this month.

On Friday, actress Blake Lively posted another picture of her almost fully-formed baby bump, as she enjoyed what appeared to be a baby shower.

The actress posed proudly with her hand over her tummy, as she stood in a garden filled with her friends.

Taking to her lifestyle blog Preserve, Blake began: ‘With a new baby on the way there is so much to do!’.

Adding: ‘But before experiencing the joy of 3am screams, seemingly impossible amounts of poop and having a favorite shirt covered in reflux…’

‘There are presents to open, onesies to dye, there is cake to serve, advice to be shared and all around celebration to be had.’

‘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.’

The post then closed with the picture of Blake – who married Ryan in September 2012 – taken by her brother Eric.
