Happy birthday Blake Lively! As the Gossip Girl star turns 27, HELLO! Online takes a look at what the stars have in store for Blake and you...

This is what Blake, who is a Virgo, can be expecting today:

Do you sometimes wish you led a different life? If this were a story being hammered out on a keyboard, might you not beseech the author to adjust the plot? Would you not even be tempted to request a re-characterisation of the principle protagonist? Can't you be turned into someone taller? Slimmer? Wealthier? Or, well, I've left the best till last in an effort to draw attention to it. But why not, wiser? Wouldn't that be more rewarding than all the rest put together? You are that writer. You have that power. Use it this week.

Blake Lively

Blake Lively was born in Los Angeles on 25 August 1987 to actor father Earnie and his wife Elaine. When she was just 11, the blonde-haired beauty began her acting career appearing in the film Sandman, which was directed by her father.

In 2005 the stunning 5'10" actress got more recognition when she got cast as the role of Bridget in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, which earned her a Teen Choice Award.

It wasn't until 2007, however, when the fashion queen was cast as the wealthy and gorgeous Serena Van Der Woodsen in the Gossip Girl series - that she became an icon for teen girls all over the world.

Blake met actor Ryan Reynolds in 2010 while filming Green Lantern, when Ryan was still married to Scarlett Johansson. Later the same year, Ryan and Scarlett parted ways, and the following year Ryan and Blake announced their relationship.

In 2012 the duo tied the knot in a secret ceremony in South Carolina. "The best part is when we turn off our phones and just talk and hang out," said Blake about their relationship. "He's my best, best friend. What do you do with your best friend? You do nothing."

The star recently revealed that she would love to start a family with Ryan, and said that she "would love to have 30 children" if she could.
