Only a few weeks after being criticized for her Instagram post quoting Sir Mix A Lot’s “Baby Got Back,” Lively appeared on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” to throw some shade of her own.
Chatting with Meyers about her second pregnancy and the difficulties of parenting while pregnant, the soon-to-be mom of two vented her frustration over moms on Instagram who make things look so easy.
“There’s this lady on Instagram I used to love to watch,” she tells Meyers. “Her name was Old Joy and she just made having a baby look lovely.”
“Everything is white, she always has a fresh blueberry pie that is steaming and scones and clotted cream. And she’s reading Old Man and the Sea and her little boy is ‘rollie’ with bonnets and just like sleeping while she’s knitting.”
“It’s amazing and I thought, well, this is lovely. Her toddler is giving her a reflexology massage… What?”
While Blake certainly isn’t innocent when it comes to posting her own images of her charmed life, she admits that parenthood is not as beautiful and serene as you see it posted on Instagram.
“My kid is like playing with like explosive device,” Lively jokes. “I don’t know where she’s found them and she’s like sticking them in our dog’s ear. I mean she already knows how to drywall because she puts holes in the wall.”
“I can’t even imagine.”
