Blake Lively made her first red carpet appearance since announcing that she and husband Ryan Reynolds are expecting their first child together, and the actress looked more gorgeous than ever. Lively glowed on the red carpet for the God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards in N.Y.C. on Thursday night in a figure-hugging gown with pink and purple flower appliqués by Michael Kors.

"My style is going to be changing, have you seen me?" she said to reporters on the carpet as she laughed. "I'm going to amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier. Because that's all that fits!"

Although her fashion choices may have evolved since becoming pregnant, Lively says she's been ready for this moment for a while. "I don't know that [being pregnant] has changed me," she says. "It's just something that I've wanted ever since I was a little girl. I never knew what I wanted to do for a living but I knew that I wanted to have a lot of kids because I come from a big family, so it was always important to me. So it's just the excitement of that finally being here." Another thing that hasn't changed? Her eating habits. Lively says she hasn't had any pregnancy cravings--so far!

Lucky for the Preserve creator, if those cravings do kick in, she's got a handsome husband to take care of her. "[Ryan is] always good to me, that's like a jerky thing to say because you want to be able to complain about your husband and be that person. But, he takes pretty good care of me."
