Twice the fun! Blake Lively had lots to celebrate at her dual baby shower and 29th birthday party on Sunday, August 28.
Blake Lively attends the Cinema Society screening of “Cafe Society" at Paris Theatre on July 13, 2016 in New York City.
A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that Lively — whose second child with husband Ryan Reynolds is due in November — and pals such as Taylor Swift and Amber Tamblyn gathered at Italian eatery Campagna in New York’s Bedford Post Inn for the occasion. (Richard Gere, owner of the quaint hillside getaway, was also on site during the event).
“It was a very simple and classy brunch with friends catching up,” a second insider adds.
With the courtyard decked in white and green balloons, the fete started around 11 a.m. and continued back at The Shallows’ star’s nearby home later that day. Swift, who flew to Westchester Country from Nashville, joined the mom to 20-month-old daughter James for “several hours,” says the source.
“You’re a wonderful friend, to humans and koalas alike,” the “Bad Blood” singer, captioned an August 25 Instagram photo —in which the two interact with a koala bear — in honor of Lively’s birthday. “I absolutely love you.”
