If anyone can pull off crimped hair, it’s Blake Lively.

The expecting actress continued to show off her flawless maternity style in New York City, highlighting her growing baby bump in a tight black dress with a sneaky slit below her chest and red and blue sequins down the side.

She wore the frock for an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers while promoting her new film The Shallows.

Lively, 28, also ditched her usual straight and sleek locks for a fun crimped ‘do.

The blonde beauty and husband Ryan Reynolds are expecting a sibling for 18-month-old daughter James in April — and Lively has been working her baby belly in amazing fashion choices.

Meyers, a new father himself, congratulated the actress on her expanding family.

“And you have a baby on the way,” he said, to which she jokingly replied, “What makes you say that?”

Luckily, Lively already has a plan to escape for the occasional night out with her husband: James can play nanny.

“I feel like at a year and a half, she’s equipped to be a babysitter. Like, we can go out and go on date night,” the actress remarked.

The actress also admitted motherhood isn’t as carefree as she once thought. Before having kids of her own, Lively says she followed a mom on social media who made parenting look like a breeze.

“Her toddler is giving her reflexology massages. What?! My kid is like playing with explosive devices. I don’t know where she found them,” Lively quipped. “She already knows how to drywall because she puts holes in the wall.”

Her second child is just the beginning of their growing family.

“I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders,” Lively joked on Today. “You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children.”

The couple haven’t announced if the baby on the way is a boy or a girl, but 39-year-old Reynolds doesn’t have a preference, even if it means being completely surrounded by women.

“I’m just fine being surrounded by estrogen. I grew up in a house full of testosterone: I’m the youngest of four boys, and my dad was a cop, and that’s intense,” PEOPLE’s reigning Sexiest Dad Alive told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle during an interview on SiriusXM EW Radio.

“For whatever reason, I always got along great with girls. I don’t have to prepare to be wrapped around my daughter’s finger — it has happened.”
