Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds find parenting 'chaotic'

BLAKE Lively and Ryan Reynolds live amid "chaos".

The Hollywood duo - who welcomed their baby daughter James into the world in December last year - are still adjusting to the everyday stresses of life as parents, according to the 27-year-old actress.

She said: "What our house is like, it's just in complete chaos.

"It's lasting on no sleep and not knowing what to do because you're a parent."

Blake also revealed she's still carrying around 15 pounds of her pregnancy weight, but has insisted she's not overly-concerned with losing any more weight right now.

She explained to BBC's 'Newsbeat': "I'm still 15 pounds heavier so it's nice that people think I lost my baby weight.

"I still haven't lost a pretty good chunk of it, but it's also the pressure - who cares?

"There's pressure to lose it, or women are like supposed to look like they did when they were 19 right after you give birth to your child, I think it's silly."

Blake - who married Ryan, 38, in 2012 - also expressed bemusement at how "you have a child and just get to leave the hospital" without being told how to cope with the everyday challenges of motherhood.
