Being pregnant is no doubt taxing on a woman’s body. But being pregnant mid summer in New York City’s sweltering heat? Well, that’s some superhero stuff.

Blake Lively stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday and opened up to Jimmy Fallon about what it’s like being pregnant when it’s so uncomfortably hot outside. Spoiler alert: It sucks.

'It should be illegal to be pregnant in New York in July,' she joked with Fallon. 'I’m going to make my water break just to cool down.'

'Everybody says "How are you feeling?" but they don’t really want to hear how you’re feeling,' she added. 'They don’t want to sit there while you complain, so you guys get to sit here while I complain.'

Both Lively and Reynolds have notoriously great senses of humour, so there’s no doubt that there’s a humor in their home to try and keep her mind off the discomfort. Plus, he’s like crazy in love with her (and it’s mutual and oh-so-cute). We've rounded all the times the pair were far too cute.

So we would imagine Reynolds probably pretty attentive towards his beautiful wife (and having a hunky, successful man doting on you is probably not the worst thing in the world… even despite all the heat).
