Blake Lively wants to have "30 children" with Ryan Reynolds
The 25-year-old actress and the 35-year-old actor - who have been dating since last year after meeting on the set of 2011 superhero film `The Green Lantern` - tied the knot in South Carolina on 09.09.12, and she is keen to have a "big family" in the future.
In an interview with Allure magazine conducted a month-and-a-half before she tied the knot, she said: "I`ve always wanted a big family. I`d love 30 (children) if I could."
Blake admits she has "never been happier" in her life, but "can`t wait" to quit teen drama series `Gossip Girl` - which she has starred in since 2007 - so she can show off her acting talents on the big screen.
Blake explained: "I`ve worked on a lot of characters in the past five years, but I haven`t had time to work on my own character.
"That`s something that I`m really excited to do. I thought, I can`t wait for `Gossip Girl` to be done because there are so many movies I want to do! But right now, I`m so peaceful. I`ve never been happier in my life."
Blake appears to have set her sights on emulating the "sacred" family unit of Ben Affleck - who she starred alongside in 2010 drama movie `The Town` - and his wife Jennifer Garner, who have daughters Violet, six and three-year-old Seraphina, and six-month-old son Samuel.
She explained: "As somebody who knows Ben and Jennifer, they cannot be more sacred with their family and their home life."
