It's rare that celebrities bring attention to a cause that hasn't directly affected themselves or a close family member, which is why the message Blake Lively shared with her fans recently is so important. The star, who had big roles in films like The Town and as Serena on Gossip Girl, married her Green Lantern costar Ryan Reynolds in 2012, and the couple have 2 young daughters, James and Ines.
Lively is known for keeping her children out of the spotlight - her daughter's names weren't even public knowledge until recently - and until her husband's Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony last year, there were only a handful of photos of the happy family together.
That fact that lively is so hush-hush about her kids and her life at home with Reynolds is part of why her recent Instagram post has been making waves online.
In a message to "all mamas and daddies out there," Lively stressed the importance of taking an infant CPR class, and shared a photo of herself attending one. Both she and her husband recently completed the safety course, and she wants other parents to do the same.
It's a simple message, but one that's getting a lot of support from parents. As Lively says, if you haven't taken one already you should run - not walk - the the nearest class!
