Gossip Girl star Blake Lively, 25, stuns on the October cover of Allure magazine. In an accompanying interview, the newlywed – who recently married actor Ryan Reynolds, 35 – opens up about her desire for a large family, how she feels about where her life has taken her and her thoughts on body image – imperfections and all.
On her wanting children: “I’ve always wanted a big family. Oh, I’d love 30 [children] if I could.”
On how she feels about her life: “Right now, I’m so peaceful…I’ve never been happier in my life. It’s the choice that you have to wake up every day and say, ‘There’s no reason today can’t be the best day of my life.”
On her body: “I obviously have plenty of imperfections on my body, but I’d rather have a little bit of cellulite and go do a food trip and try every ice cream place in the South.”
Allure‘s October issue will hit newsstands September 25th.
