Blake Lively made her first red carpet appearance since announcing her pregnancy, and she was more than happy to show off her bump!

“Have you seen me?!” the expectant actress joked to PEOPLE of her growing baby belly Thursday in New York at the God’s Love We Deliver 2014 Golden Heart Awards.

So how does the fashion icon plan to evolve her wardrobe with her pregnancy?

“I’m gonna amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier,” the one-time Gossip Girl star, who wore an oleander and lilac embroidered stretch tulle gown from the Michael Kors Resort 2015 collection, told PEOPLE. “Because that’s all that fits!”

As for cravings, the founder of Preserve.us, her new lifestyle site, told reporters, “I haven’t had [any].”

One thing she does have, though: a supportive husband. “He’s always good to me,” Lively, 27, told reporters of husband and father-to-be Ryan Reynolds, 37.

“You want to be able to complain about your husband and be that person, but he takes pretty good care of me,” she added.

Earlier this month, Lively announced that she and Reynolds are expecting their first child — a moment the mom-to-be has been waiting for since she was a child.

“It’s something that I’ve always wanted, ever since I was a little girl,” Lively said. “I never knew what I wanted to do for a living, but I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I come from a big family, so that was always important to me. It’s just the excitement of finally being able to.”
