Blake Lively worried she wasn't ''equipped'' to be a mother.

The 27-year-old actress - who is married to Ryan Reynolds, with whom she has a three-month-old daughter James - has revealed that on her way home from the hospital after giving birth, she harboured doubts as to whether she was ready to be a mother.

She shared: ''I remember leaving the hospital thinking, 'I have no idea what I am doing. I have a life in my hands and I'm not equipped to do this'.

''Because I don't have the knowledge I need to take care of the most precious, fragile thing on in the world.

''It felt like being a passenger on a plane and being told, 'By the way, now you are going to be piloting the plane.' But then you take her home and you figure it out. Sometimes you don't figure it out and even that is a whole new experience.''

Blake also revealed she's looking forward to getting older and is ready to just enjoy the journey.

Blake told Stylist magazine: ''Right now I am really looking forward to getting older. The older I've got, the more enriched my life has become, from a great childhood with my family to moving to New York, getting married and having a baby.''
