Blake Lively dieting for Christmas

The former Gossip Girl star is ready to get back to work three months after welcoming her second child.

New mum Blake Lively has set herself the goal of getting back into her old jeans by Christmas.

The former Gossip Girl star gave birth to her second daughter with husband Ryan Reynolds in September (16), and she's already determined to get back into shape, revealing that her early "New Years resolution" is to wear her favourite pants over the holidays.

"WILL fit into my jeans again gall darnet (sic),” Blake posted on Instagram on Monday (05Dec26), alongside a photo featuring yummy dishes mostly provided by food-delivery firm Epicured, adding, "This is not an ad. This is me getting it up for healthy food."

The post came three days after Blake took to Instagram on "#FitnessFriday" and posted a snap of herself hiding from a trainer at the gym. She added the caption: "Current mood".

She might be keen to share her photos on Instagram and her plans to get trim, but the actress and Ryan remain one of Hollywood's most private pairs - the couple still hasn't released the name of its second daughter, or her exact birthdate.

They had a little fun on social media when Reynolds inadvertently announced the sex of their second child on Conan O'Brien's late-night U.S. talk show last month (02Nov16). Blake posted a photo of her husband's efforts to apologise for his TV slip-up - a glass of ice-cold milk with one of her favourite cookies, hand-toasted by the guilty dad-to-be.

And on Father's Day (19Jun16), she shared a funny post, writing: "Since the day our baby was born, I've felt so strongly in my heart that you were most likely the father."

Meanwhile, when Cafe Society actress Blake dieted after the birth of her first daughter James, she was prepping for a movie role in The Shallows, in which she would have to wear a bikini just eight months after becoming a mum.

“I did no gluten and no soy,” she explained of that diet. “Once you remove soy, you realise you’re eating no processed foods. So that’s basically what I did. No processed foods and then working out."
