“I’ll knit or cook – or work on a motorcycle, a skill my husband is teaching me. One of my latest projects was painting nature-inspired throw pillows.” Blake revealed to O Magazine.
As well as disclosing her surprising stress-relieving hobbies, the Gossip Girl star also discussed her approach to parenting, and shared her wish to raise her child with a sense of magic – much like her own mother did.
“My mom liked to infuse my life with a lot of magic. When she read my fortune cookies, the predictions were full of princesses and castles and jewels and pirates,” she said. “When I got old enough to read them, I was shocked to find out how boring they really were!”
“It’s constantly changing. I’ll go back to an area I visited four years ago, and it’s completely different. But that’s a good thing because it means there will always be new neighbourhoods to eat my way through.”
Blake has clearly taken to being a mother and previously said it is “the happiest time in my life”.
“I don’t feel like it’s a massive change,” she told People magazine, adding that she is keen to have a big family with her Green Lantern actor husband.
“This is the happiest time in my life in my life, and I could say that every day. I often feel like, ‘I can’t believe I’m experiencing this.’”
