Blake Lively Describes Breast Feeding As Full Time Gig

Blake Lively Describes Breast Feeding As Full Time Gig

Blake Lively is gorgeous on the cover of Allure magazine’s May 2015 issue, out on newsstands on April 21!

Here’s what the 27-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On doing it all: “Most of the things I do are all-consuming, but somehow I find a way to do it all. It’s not having it all; it’s about doing it all, but it’s dangerous to dilute that to a catchphrase. Having it all could be having a happy, healthy family, and you could be a mom who stays at home, and that is the most admirable thing you could do. Or it could be having a profession that you really believe in, and not having a family, and doing what fulfills you. If it’s not a part of a conversation with someone face-to-face, those bites are why women tear each other apart or why the media will tear people apart.”

On breast feeding: “A full-time job. I’m, like, driving down the road, pumping.”

On revealing her pregnancy on her site preserve: “That was my way of owning that moment. I can’t be someone like Beyoncé and be like— (she mimes throwing open a jacket and showing off her belly, a reference to Beyoncé’s onstage announcement of her pregnancy at the VMAs in 2011). But it was important for us. It was a struggle, because we want to keep our privacy, but we also don’t want our lives to be exploited by other people. So we did it simply; it was a quiet way, an elegant way.”
