How many women do you know go to a wedding wearing Louboutin’s just days after giving birth? Our guess is probably none, unless you’re Blake Lively—then you’d show off your post-baby toned body at your friend’s wedding, with your hunky husband Ryan Reynolds.

The actress was seen just days after having her second child at her best friend’s wedding—talk about commitment! Lively took to her Instagram to post a loving picture of her, along with the bride and some super thoughtful words.

Given that she was wearing a long coat so there wasn’t much to be revealed, she still looked stunning supporting her friend on her big day. We’re just glad to see Lively back on her feet so soon after giving birth.

Blake Lively Intensive Training for Her Post-Baby Body

Lively recently released The Shallows, which was only filmed eight months after giving birth to her first daughter. The actress noted that she trained intensely to get her bikini body back—especially because for the majority of the film she would literally only be in a bikini. Believe it or not, the actress was actually quite insecure about the whole experience.

In an interview with Women’s Health, the actress admitted, “The struggle is that I am doing a movie in a bikini eight months after having a baby and there is a level of insecurity and vanity that comes with that. You don’t want to be the person in the magazines that they are saying ‘ugh, look at her’ rather than ‘wow, look at her.’ That’s a shame because there shouldn’t be that negative ‘ugh’ after someone has a baby.

Your body is so beautiful. You couldn’t walk a Victoria’s Secret runway but it’s beautiful in a completely different and incredible way and I do wish I had the bravery to go out there and represent women as they actually look.”

In order to look her best for the film, Lively embarked on intensive training along with a strict diet. She completely cut out all processed food, soy, and gluten, and her fitness routine included swimming laps, interval training, and kettle bells.

All of that work Lively put in definitely paid off, because she looked amazing in The Shallows. The real question is: will she embark on the same training and diet this time around, now that she has had her second child?

We suppose that would depend on whether or not she has another film in the works. Regardless, Blake Lively always looks amazing whether she is filming or not, and with having such a hunky husband, we’re sure the both of them live quite a healthy lifestyle all-year round.
