Blake Lively in The Shallows

In the world of pop culture, there are few subjects which garner as much attention as celebrity marriages. Things really kick into high gear when pregnancies and famous babies factor into the narrative, with fans following every move and pound of weight gained by the couple. One of the most beloved couples at the moment is Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, who seem to have a utterly hilarious and fun relationship. The Deadpool and The Shallows actors welcomed a second daughter into the world over a year ago, and Lively has managed to lose a whopping 61 lbs since giving birth. She posted an Instagram photo before, check it out.

Blake Lively's summer body arrived a few months early, as it looks like she's back to her pre-baby weight. Her photo revealed that it took 14 months for her to get the weight off, revealing that the Gossip Girl alum has been working hard for over a year to get the results. And if the above photo is any indication, the hard work really paid off.

Blake Lively's snatched body looks almost like it did during the filming of The Shallows. The shark movie hit theaters in 2016, and was one of the hits of the summer. Ultimately, Lively's protagonist Nancy ended up surviving her harrowing shark attack, so perhaps she's been prepping to possibly film a sequel. The horror genre is one known for producing follow up movies, and the Jaws franchise even had three sequels. The Shallows made an impressive $119.1 million on a budget of $17 million, so it stands to reason that Columbia Pictures might want to bring her back for a second installment.

Regardless of professional possibilities, Blake Lively seems to be very happy about the transformation she's made over the past year. While the return of her beach body may seem instant for casual fans, the truth is that she's been putting in a ton of work with trainer Don Saladino. The caption ends with "feeling very proud", so that's exactly what she should be.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are one of Hollywood's biggest it couples, mostly because they seem to have such a fun time enjoying each other. Reynolds' social media presence is delightfully bonkers, and often features Lively as well. Like celebrity couple Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Twitter and Instagram can help fans feel closer to their favorite celebrity couple.

Congratulations on the weight loss, Blake Lively. Thanks for sharing your journey with us!
