Pregnant Blake Lively and father-to-be Ryan Reynolds hit the red carpet together

They were apart for most of the weekend, with Blake Lively attending events in New York City while Ryan Reynolds was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame in Toronto.

Now, the parents-to-be have finally made their first joint red carpet appearance since announcing the happy news they are expecting their first baby.

All eyes were on the beaming young couple – in particular Blake, 27, who put her bump centre stage in a plunging yellow Gucci gown that clung to her new curves.

Blake and Ryan are expecting their first child together

Understandably, Ryan couldn't keep his eyes off his beautiful wife, and stood with his arm protectively wrapped around her waist as the couple posed outside the Angel Ball in Manhattan.

Ryan Reynolds has joked about possible baby names

"I don't want a name that's anything pretentious, or, like Hollywood-y. So I'm going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds… that's if it's a girl," Ryan joked with reports. And if it's a boy? "Bruce Jenner," he replied.

Blake's amazing maternity style

Blake has also spoken of her excitement ahead of the baby's arrival. "(Motherhood) is something I've always wanted ever since I was a little girl," the star told US Weekly.

"I never knew what I wanted to do for a living, but I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I had come from a big family, so it was always important to me."
