This is taking pretty in pink to a whole new level.

While there were plenty of stars who opted for color at Monday night's 2016 Met Gala, Blake Lively delighted fans when she stepped out in New York City.

Wearing a pink Burberry gown with floral prints, the Gossip Girl alum tried her best to conceal her baby bump while following this year's theme of "Manux X Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology."

Tonight's star-studded event marks Blake's first red carpet appearance since news broke that she was expecting baby No. 2 with her husband Ryan Reynolds.

Speculation that the family was expanding first happened in early April when the actress was spotted filming re-shoots for The Shallows where she appeared to be covering up her stomach area with an oversized robe on the beach.

"They are very excited," a source shared with E! News. "Blake always wanted two or three kids."

Ryan echoed those sentiments when he spoke candidly in an interview with Details magazine. "We'd love to have a big family. We both come from big families—my parents did four, Blake's did five. A lot of people say it's crazy, but we'll only know when we're there, you know?" he dished. "We'll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think."

Putting pregnancies and families aside, Blake has consistently wowed fashion lovers at the Met Gala over the years. Whether bringing the va-va-voom in a glittery Gucci gown in 2014 or opting for a strapless Gucci ensemble in 2013, the actress has earned rave reviews for her looks time and time again.

Job well done!
