The connection between Blake Lively and Gigi Hadid goes beyond mere friendship, extending into the realm of coparenting as these two luminous stars wholeheartedly support each other in various facets of life. On Saturday, August 26, the model, aged 28, took to Instagram to commemorate Lively’s 36th birthday, which had taken place the day before.
In a heartwarming and light-hearted Instagram post, Hadid shared a throwback image of the two of them together. The snapshot captures Lively with a noticeable baby bump, prompting Hadid to reminisce, “Pretty sure this pic is before her (our) baby number 1, but I just love it because I still feel like the baby of the group.”

Reflecting on the evolution of their lives since the photo was taken, Hadid playfully remarked, “Lots-o-angelbabies later, u are a magical friend and mamma — protective, warm, witty, thoughtful, talented, HOT!” She continued with a vivid portrayal of Lively’s qualities, “Ur made of all the good stuff like rainbow sprinkles and butter and bourbon whipped creme. And lobster salad. Lots of lobster salad.”
Hadid expressed her deep gratitude for Lively’s positive impact on her life, concluding her caption with heartfelt sentiments, “Thank you for your light and example sister @blakelively. Wishing you the best year yet. 🎂 u know ily!”
Lively reciprocated this affectionate gesture by sharing Hadid’s post on her own Instagram story and adding her personal touch. “This was before baby #3 for me and #1 for you. ❤️ Coparenting with you, whether you agree to raise my children or not, is one of my life’s greatest joys. Love you, mama, sister, friend.”
Their close bond transcends the glamour of the entertainment world as they navigate their respective journeys of parenthood. Hadid is the mother of a 2-year-old named Khai, while Lively, alongside her husband Ryan Reynolds, is nurturing a family of four children — daughters James (8), Inez (6), and Betty (3), in addition to a fourth child whose name remains a well-kept secret.

However, their connection goes beyond parenting roles. Hadid and Lively wholeheartedly support each other’s professional ventures as well. In recent months, Hadid publicly endorsed Lively’s latest business venture, Betty Booze canned cocktails, an exciting addition to Lively’s repertoire following her successful Betty Buzz mixers.
Even across the virtual realm of social media, their friendship shines brightly. Reynolds, known for his trademark humor, set aside his jesting style to pen a genuinely heartfelt tribute to Lively on her birthday. Captioning a series of photos of his wife, he conveyed his deep admiration, “The only thing irrevocably mine in the world is the love and appreciation and awe I feel for this person. Witnessing her life is something I couldn’t take for granted if I tried. And believe me, I try. Happy Birthday, @blakelively. You hung the damn moon.”
In a world where glitz and glamour abound, the genuine and cherished connection between Blake Lively and Gigi Hadid stands out as a testament to the power of camaraderie that effortlessly traverses the realms of parenthood and career triumphs.
