The beautiful and talented Blake Lively graces the May 2015 cover of Allure magazine and she couldn’t look more stunning. The new mother is seen on the cover posing in a crisp white shirt, tousled hair, and natural-looking makeup. She talks about her new daughter, James, motherhood, and being excited about aging.
Here are a few of the the things she touched on in the magazine:


Her number-one priority is her family. Blake recently had her baby girl, James, with husband Ryan Reynolds. “I feel like I’ve figured out the most important thing to me,” she tells Allure, “and everything supports that.”

She loves her girl time with former Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars America Ferrera, Alexis Bledel, and Amber Tamblyn. “Three of us have getaways, so we’ll go to different houses and kick our husbands out — now we’re all married women, and they all want to hang out with the girls. They start lingering in the kitchen too long, and we’re like, ‘Hey, beat it! It’s lady time.'”

She talks about her role in The Age of Adeline and the obsession people have with age. “People are obsessed with beauty and youth and with looking and feeling young forever,” Lively says. “But look at a woman who is granted that: She’s trapped, because it’s tragic to be young forever.” “And also, having a child makes you realize that we pass on for a reason. You think, I have to go, because it makes room for you.”

Breastfeeding and how laborious it can be. For Blake, breast-feeding is “a full-time job”. “I’m, like, driving down the road, pumping” she tells Allure.
