I mean...could you get any cuter?

However, for the first time ever, Blake Lively has opened up about how she's protecting her daughters and thousands of children across the world from things that could destroy their childhood innocence.

In an interview with Variety magazine, The Shallows actress revealed she's working with nonprofit organisation Child Rescue Coalition to raise awareness for their fight against child pornography. The CRC uses innovative technology to find the IP addresses of people who share and download sexually explicit images of children.

Having learned of the nonprofit during an event sponsored by L'Oreal – of which she is a brand ambassador – the Café Society star admitted she felt compelled to highlight the organisation's pioneering work, as a mother of two young children.

'There are millions of files all over the world being traded every single day of child pornography. It's so disturbing. A lot of these people are fathers,' she revealed.

According to the publication, Child Rescue Coalition's endless work has led to the arrest of 9,000 sexual predators and rescuted 2,084 children from active abuse.

'If you proactively find these predators, you can save so many children,' adds Lively.

Discussing motherhood, following the birth of the couple's six-month-old daughter, Ines, the actress revealed that she and Reynolds consciously try to shield their children from the prying eyes of Hollywood and maintain the childhood fantasies that every child adores.

The former Gossip Girl star admitted one of her daughters is obsessed with The Wizard of Oz.

'My daughter is in love with it so I watch it probably 60 times a week,' she revealed.

Next time you watch it, Blake, you buy the crisps and we'll bring the popcorn.
