Blake Lively is expecting a new little life. The actress posted a photo of herself with a pregnant belly Monday morning. 

The post was to her website, Preserve, which crashed Monday from all the traffic. Not a bad way to get a few hits and a little publicity.

Lively's pregnancy pic was the finishing photo in a post about family. 

The announcement is being dubbed by media as "adorable," "artsy," even "autumnal."

A family has seemingly been in the works for a while for Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds.

In fall 2012 she told Allure she'd love to have "30 kids" if she could.

Reynolds has expressed similar sentiments. In August 2013 he told Details magazine"We'd love to have a big family. ... We both come from big families—my parents did four, Blake's did five."

Lively and Reynolds marred in 2012. They met on the set of "Green Lantern" in 2010 but didn't begin dating until fall 2011.
