Blake Lively is best known for her role of socialite and party-goer, Serena Van der Woodsen on the hit show Gossip Girl. In real life, Lively has said that she is more of a homebody, preferring cooking to partying, and credits her tight-knit family (many of whom who are in the business,) for raising her to be well-rounded and avoid the plague that affects many young Hollywood starlets.
The 23-year-old loves her big family so much, that she plans to have her own large family some day, telling Allure Magazine via People,
I want babies. Lots of babies. Of course!”
Lively, who has been dating co-star Penn Badgley for nearly three years, also shared her hopes of becoming a restaurateur, saying, “I want to have a brunch place, a bakery, and a Southern restaurant – because my family’s from Georgia – and then I want a place that is all-over-the-world cuisine.”
Lively is currently promoting her newest flick, The Town, which co-stars, and is directed by celeb dad Ben Affleck.
