Blake Lively has been very busy lately - she married her Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds in a secret ceremony in South Carolina over the weekend after less than a year of dating (they met on the set of the film, which was actually pretty good -- don't believe the critics); and she's been spotted around New York City recently filming scenes for the final season of her hit CW show Gossip Girl.
The couple also recently bought a house in upstate New York, which is very reminiscent of the setting of her cover shoot for the October issue of Allure magazine, and stars in a down-to-earth, yet very sexy, photoshoot.
The 25-year-old star has been quiet about her relationship with reynolds; "I'm a very shy person," she says; "I can be outgoing, but I'm also very private."
But she has given some hints to where the couple's relationship was headed; revealing, "I've always wanted a big family."
She loves kids -- one of the images from her shoot features her taking a picture of her niece and nephew, Kate and Baylen; and she says she'd love lots of children, but her career would make it difficult to have as many as she'd like.
"Oh, I'd love 30 if I could," she says.
Blake's ex-boyfriend, her Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley, has spoken up about her recent nuptials with Reynolds, wishing the couple well.
"I actually didn't know until last night, but I think it's fantastic," he tells People.com. "I couldn't be happier for her."
Badgley is currently dating actress Zoe Kravitz.
