In case there was ever any doubt, Blake Lively's new maternity wear is in full swing, and it's taking the 2016 Cannes Film Festival red carpet by storm. The actress, who's expecting her second child with her actor husband Ryan Reynolds, was simply glowing among her Café Society cast members as she stepped out for the premiere of the new movie in a shimmery, body-hugging gown that, more importantly, made no effort to hide her baby bump.

The body-conscious, spaghetti strap, trumpet gown hugged Lively's growing pregnancy curves as the actress gracefully walked the red carpet in silver sandals with a slight train following behind her. Lively wore her blonde hair down around her shoulders with a side part and loose waves. Simply put: She looked stunning (no shocker there).

"Blake is absolutely thrilled and so is Ryan," a source close to Lively, 28, and her husband Ryan Reynolds, 39, told People in April following their super exciting pregnancy news.

While this isn't Lively's first strut on the red carpet since news of her second pregnancy broke in April, we have yet to catch a good, solid glimpse of the actress' baby bump. (And, needless to say, we were intrigued.) Earlier this month, we were anxious to see her Met Gala maternity look, but Lively covered up her belly with a lovely pink A-line Burberry gown.

Wednesday morning at Cannes, the actress squashed our hopes again by stepping out for the festival in a fire-engine-red, form-fitting jumpsuit that only slightly hinted at something more than a food baby.

So alas! Reynolds and Lively's second, sure-to-be-adorable child has made its Hollywood debut. The new parents welcomed their first daughter, James, at the end of 2014 and, during Lively's first pregnancy, we got to see ALL the glamorous maternity looks from the starlet. And given her latest ensemble, it seems that we can expect Lively to pull out the stops, yet again, for her second time as a mommy-to-be.
