Thirty-year-old Blake Lively and 41-year-old Ryan Reynolds are one of the great love stories of our time. The two famous lovebirds married in 2012 and have two daughters together, but one thing they are excellent at is making jokes. They simply love to troll each other on Instagram, Twitter, and every other social media platform. It turns out they are just as good at talking about serious stuff: just recently, Blake was very honest about her pregnancy weight loss journey and fans loved the candid nature of her posts, as FourNine reports.
It’s obvious the two have a great sense of humor. I mean, look at this post:
Lively hasn’t been afraid to speak candidly about her body and the huge effort it took to work on it postpartum.
The actress took to Instagram to talk about how long it took to remove the 61lbs (28kg) she put on while pregnant with Ines, who was born in September 2016.
As many celebrities do, the actress was dedicated to losing the weight shared her journey with her followers.
Posting a post-workout picture to Instagram, Lively said that it took the whole of 14 months to get back into shape.
“Turns out you can’t lose the 61 lbs you gained during pregnancy by just scrolling through Instagram and wondering why you don’t look like all the bikini models,” she wrote in the caption of the post. “Thanks @donsaladino for kickin’ my A double S into shape. 10 months to gain, 14 months to lose. Feeling very proud”.
Lively got help from the well-known celebrity trainer Don Saladino.
The NYC-based fitness coach has trained other A-list clients including Scarlett Johansson, Hugh Jackman, and Ryan Gosling, as well as Lively’s husband, Ryan Reynolds.
Reynolds has also been training hard for the latest Deadpool film.
Excited for @vancityreynolds that #deadpool2 filming has been completed. – Great having him back in NYC. – I also don’t remember him being that much taller then me. I might need to start putting more product in my hair 😳😬 – #suitup #superherotraining #donsaladino #ryanreynolds #Repost @vancityreynolds (@get_repost) ・・・ Great working out with @donsaladino this morning. I feel 4 hours younger.
Saladino also posted a picture of him and Lively celebrating her stunning new post-pregnancy figure
Doesn’t she look gorgeous? Blake’s fans loved the picture and her honesty with the post flooded with gratitude for her frankness.
“Thanks for saying 14 months to lose,” one person wrote in the comments. “Others make us think it’s magic, like a month after they are even slimmer than pre-pregnancy.” Another added: “Thank you for being realistic in how long it takes to lose it! These beautiful babies take priority after all!”.
However, some people also chose to point out that Lively is in a privileged position.
“You look amazing!! I wish I had somebody to take care of the kids while I was training,” one person commented. “She looks AMAZING. BUT it doesn’t hurt when you’re rich and famous and have the best trainers and nutritionists, housekeepers etc money can buy,” another added.
