Blake Lively: I want 30 kids

Blake Lively dreams of having a "big family of 30 children”.

The actress spoke about her desire to have a large brood in an interview conducted before her reported nuptials with Ryan Reynolds on Sunday.

The Gossip Girl star is yet to confirm the wedding and spoke to Allure magazine about her secretive side a-month-and-a-half before she tied the knot.

"I’ve always wanted a big family. Oh, I'd love 30 [children] if I could," Blake revealed. "I'm a very shy person, I can be outgoing, but I'm also very private."

Blake is naturally a homebody. The actress explained that settling down is something that comes naturally to her.

"I don't drink. I've never tried a drug. [In clubs] the music is so loud, you can't have a conversation with somebody," Blake complained. "If I were an amazing dancer, yeah, I'd go, but I'm definitely not. It's not like I decided on these strict lifestyle choices and I'm enforcing them. It's just something that I genuinely don't have a desire for."

Blake and Ryan managed to pull off a top secret wedding at the weekend. Keeping to her private persona, Blake swore all the guests to secrecy including the wedding singer and close friend Florence Welch.

Kacie Faulling - a hair and make-up artist based in Charleston, South Carolina, where the wedding took place - spoke to the Florence + the Machine singer before her big performance.

"[She was] very nervous," Kacie told People. "Florence said [she was singing] for a good friend and this was her wedding gift for the bride and groom... She said she performs all the time, but she was performing at the wedding and she got nervous because it was for a friend."

    Some things in life are hard to explain, like why a dentist insists on asking you questions when you clearly can't respond. Or why we call pants "a pair" even though it's just one. Or how about this puzzler: Why a person would drive their Mustang along a Texas highway despite it missing a wheel? Life is full of little mysteries, I guess.

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.
