The former “Gossip Girl” actress, 27, who glows on the cover of Allure magazine’s May 2015 issue, reveals how her life has changed since becoming a mother.

“I feel like I’ve figured out the most important thing to me,” she told the mag referring to the fact that her family is her top priority, “and everything supports that.”

Having a baby helped her understand certain aspects of life such as aging and the cycle of life.

“People are obsessed with beauty and youth and with looking and feeling young forever,” she said. “But look at a woman who is granted that: She’s trapped, because it’s tragic to be young forever.”

“And also, having a child makes you realize that we pass on for a reason. You think, I have to go, because it makes room for you,” she added.

Lively also opened up about breastfeeding, saying that it is a “full-time job.”

“I’m, like, driving down the road, pumping,” she joked.
