Blake Lively Chooses Her Daughters Over Her Career
On paper, Blake Lively seems to have it all: a fantastic husband, three beautiful children, and a career in Hollywood. But she herself said that it is not at all easy to reconcile family and career.
The actress, ex Serena of Gossip Girl, during the Michael Kors fashion show at New York fashion week, spoke with E! News about her personal life, how much she loves being a mother, and of her priorities, when career and family cannot coexist.
Apparently, everything comes second, because their three children are always in the first place.
In fact, the actress said that she never leaves her family to work, unless the role that has been proposed to her is really, really, really worth it.
“I have to like a role really, really, really much for me to say yes, because at the moment I am sincerely obsessed with my daughters – said Blake Lively, referring to his process of choosing film projects – So if it has to take me away from them then it must be really worth it. “
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, married since 2012, are the parents of James, 5 years old and Inez, 3 and recently they also welcomed their third daughter late autumn 2019.
The couple has always preferred to keep their daughters away from social media and paparazzi: they want to raise them in the most normal way possible.
In an interview in 2016, Blake Lively said she felt extremely protective of her family: «I’d rather not have to worry about their privacy, but we knew what we were getting into. And, even if it’s difficult, we do everything for our family».
