Since welcoming James, both Ryan and Blake have been open about raising their daughter. "Everything is different," Blake said on Live! With Kelly and Michael in April 2015. "You see a balcony and you're like, 'Oh God, the hotel needs to demolish this balcony because my child can't go anywhere near it.' So, everything is just like, so much more heightened. We're crying all the time for no reason."

Last month, Ryan and Blake were the picture of happiness while attending a state dinner at the White House in celebration of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau's visit to the Capital. The style star dazzled in a stunning silvery-lilac gown by Ralph & Russo.
