After turning out *the* most show-stopping dress for this year's Met Gala, Blake Lively has been at the forefront of everyone's minds. Whether sharing a refreshing no-makeup selfie or rocking a Samantha Jones-worthy power suit, we're simply obsessed.

And recently, the 34-year-old actress has given us even more to admire. Speaking about the launch of her very own non-alcoholic mixer line Betty Buzz, she got candid about her self-acceptance journey in conversation with Forbes and how becoming a mother has helped her confidence.

"I think having children for me made me feel so much more in my skin. I never felt more myself or at ease in my own body or more confident," Blake said. "Not to say that there aren't a bevy of insecurities coming at me a million times a day, but I just feel incredibly settled."

"I just think that growing up, having kids, all of those things made me feel like I only want to do things where I can have really meaningful collaborations and have authorship," she added. "I believe in really valuable collaborations and that's where I'm getting my fulfilment these days and I've never been happier, professionally,"

Blake has three daughters with her husband and fellow actor Ryan Reynolds: James (7), Inez (5) and Betty (2). Ryan recently opened up about their home life and how he and Blake share the "labour" of parenting, saying; "Blake runs the show. I would kind of really phone things in if it wasn’t for her. She has higher standards."

Love these two!
