Blake Lively's 'Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants' Co-Stars Aren't Godmothers, But They're Still BFFs
Sometimes when news seems too good to be true, that may actually be the case. Earlier in the week, actress Amber Tamblyn announced that Blake Lively named her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars as her daughter's godmothers. This seemed adorably exciting, since it showed that Lively, Tamblyn, America Ferrera, and Alexis Bledel's sisterhood went beyond a pair of pants. Well, I hate to burst everybody's bubble, but Blake Lively set the record straight — her sister is actually baby James's godmother.
While it's a bit disappointing that the Sisterhood girls aren't, it totally makes sense that she and husband Ryan Reynolds chose Lively's real-life sister for this role. At a press conference for The Age of Adaline, Lively said: "My sister would be the one to take care of my baby [if something were to happen]."
Even though it appears there may have been a misunderstanding on Tamblyn's part, this isn't necessarily bad news. Lively clarified,
I never named them my godmothers. They're my dear friends. I would say my baby has a lot of fairy godmothers.
Fairy godmothers? Godmothers? It's all semantics. What really matters is that these girls have a solid friendship no matter what. Case in point: Here's a look back at some of their greatest bestie moments.
Promoting Amber's Book
Amber Tamblyn recently released a poetry collection called Dark Sparkler , so naturally America Ferrera posted an Instagram showing her support and bragging about her BFF.
Blake Lively also helped promote Tamblyn's book with this photo of them eating some sort of strange vegetable. Friends who eat new foods together, stay together.
Supporting America's Matinee
Not only do they brag about their friends' accomplishments online, but they show up in person too. The girls all went to see America Ferrera's play Lips Together, Teeth Apart.
Going To Brunch
These girls have been in each other's weddings, but they're also content hanging in casual social settings too, as seen in the photo above.
Cheering On Hillary Together
After Hillary Clinton announced her plans to run for president in 2016, Amber Tamblyn and America Ferreira both shared an Instagram from them supporting Clinton's campaign back in 2008. Of course they used the hashtag #sisterhood.
Celebrating New Years
With animal masks and everything, these girls still celebrate holidays together.
Watching The Oscars Together
Here Amber and America are just hanging out on the couch watching the Oscars. In the caption they mention wearing Duane Reade makeup and eating cupcakes, as all the best BFFs do.
See? These girls have an awesome relationship, regardless of the "godmother" title. Here's hoping that this all means that they'll be starring in the third Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants movie... Fingers crossed!
