Blake Lively discusses how her children help her feel more confident.
The 34-year-old actress recently told Forbes that having three daughters has helped her feel more confident in her own skin on both a personal and professional level.
“I think having children made me feel so much more in my skin,” adds Lively, who has three girls with husband Ryan Reynolds: James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2. “I’ve never felt more myself, at comfortable in my own skin, or confident – not that I don’t have a million insecurities to deal with on a daily basis, but I just feel very settled.”
“I just think that growing up and having children shaped me.”
“I believe in really valuable collaborations and that’s where I’m getting my fulfillment these days and I’ve never been happier, professionally,” adds the Age of Adeline star.
Lively also mentions that she considers her family when making decisions.
“Everything I do is rooted in my family, and everything I create is rooted in my family,” she explains. “As a result, anytime I produce something, I always keep my family in mind because that’s how I live.”
Betty Buzz, her newest business venture, was inspired in part by her children, according to the actress.
“That’s one of the reasons Betty Buzz was significant to us,” she continues, “because my kids could drink them with me.” “That they wouldn’t be putting substances in their bodies that I would feel awful about.”
“That influences the types of projects I want to work on. I want to star in films, direct films, and write films that I would be happy to show my children “She goes on. “I want my children to be proud of everything I do, including the gowns I wear. Everything I do is rooted in my family, which is why I feel good about what I’m doing because it has true purpose and heart.”
