Ryan Reynolds Admits Wife Blake Lively Is ‘Extraordinarily Pregnant Right Now’

Ryan Reynolds feels for his wife, Blake Lively, who is nearing the end of her second pregnancy.

The actor has partnered with Eddie Bauer and American Forests for the One Tree Initiative, which launched its #Hug2Give social media campaign Wednesday, and E! News spoke to Reynolds in NYC Tuesday night about how Lively wouldn’t be hiking with him anytime soon.

“My wife is just extraordinarily pregnant right now, so there’s not a lot of hiking in her immediate future—nor do I think it’s going to happen the second she gives birth, either,” Reynolds joked. “I’m told there’s some recuperation that’s needed.” He added that August, with its excessive heat and humidity, is “the worst month on earth to be pregnant.”

He’s ready to add to their family, which includes 20-month-old daughter, James Reynolds. “There’s nothing on earth more grounding than having a baby. It’s the best thing that could ever happen to someone.”

Through Sept. 15, each time someone hugs a tree and tags #OneTree, #Hug2Give, @EddieBauer and @AmericanForests on any social media platform, Eddie Bauer will donate $50 to American Forests, up to $25,000.
