The actress was booked for a chat with a reporter from the Los Angeles Times last week (ends24Apr15) and her schedule was so packed, she decided to take her daughter James with her so she could feed the tot while discussing her latest work.

Writer Amy Kaufman described her surprise at meeting Lively's four-month-old girl during the interview, particularly as the star and her husband Ryan Reynolds have been known for trying to keep their private lives out of the spotlight.

Kaufman writes of the chat, "'Hi,' Blake Lively says, extending her free hand. Her other one is occupied, cradling her swaddled newborn, who nurses at her chest. She sits down on a couch, props a pillow on her lap and continues breast-feeding..."

She continues, "When James was born in December, there were no big magazine cover reveals, and the couple did not even share her name for months. But there it was in gold letters hanging from Lively's neck: James. I am asked not to describe what the baby looks like - but how do you really describe an infant anyway, other than cute. 'Thanks for that,' she says. 'Please don't describe my areolas, either.'"
