The 29-year-old took a break from acting after GG to build her now defunct lifestyle website Preserve. She returned to the big screen in the 2015 movie The Age of Adaline, and welcomed her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds in 2014. She gave birth to a second daughter in September 2016.

It's been over four years since our favorite group of rich kids caused drama on Manhattan’s upper east side. But while we no longer follow Blair Waldorf’s every move, we’ve been keeping up with the Gossip Girl cast — and they've certainly been busy since the show ended!
Not only has Blake Lively (aka Serena van der Woodsen) gotten married since the series finale in 2012 (to super hunk Ryan Reynolds), but the uber attractive duo welcomed two daughters, James and Ines.

The blonde beauty, who lives with her family in Bedford, NY, revealed before giving birth to baby No. 2 that she’s trying to give her kids the type of childhood she experienced.
"My husband and I chose a profession and a side effect of that is your personal life is public,” she told Marie Claire UK last year. “Our child hasn't had the opportunity to choose whether or not she wants her personal life to be public or not. So in order to give her as much normality as possible, we want her to have a childhood like we had."
See what the rest of the GG gang has been up to since the show’s final episode — including which other cast members have welcomed kids!
