She's only just married Ryan Reynolds, but Blake Lively has already set her sights on parenthood.

And from the sounds of it, this is going to be some honeymoon! Covering the October issue of Allure in Gucci's striped silk georgette dress with a peekaboo bra, the fresh-faced beauty opens up about wanting to settle down. "I've always wanted a big family," she tells the magazine, adding that she'd love 30 [children] if I could.

Kidding around: Blake Lively in a white Marchesa gown.

The Gucci campaign star also dropped a serious hint about her upcoming nuptials, posing for lensman Carter Smith in a white tulle dress from Marchesa, who designed her wedding dress. We should have known!

Lolling about with goats in Pleasantville, New York for the countryside shoot, Lively also dishes about her alcohol- and drug-free lifestyle, how her friends tease her about her "speed walker" dance moves, and why she won't deny herself for the sake of a perfect figure.

"I obviously have plenty of imperfections on my body, but I'd rather have a little bit of cellulite and go do a food trip and try every ice cream place in the South," she says, showing no signs of cottage-cheese thighs as she models a Balmain sweater and Michael Kors briefs. Tellingly, the blonde beauty also shared that she's looking forward to developing her personal life after Gossip Girl ends. Um, check!

"I've worked on a lot of characters in the past five years, but I haven't had time to work on my own character," Lively says. "That's something that I'm really excited to do. I thought, I can't wait for Gossip Girl to be done because there are so many movies I want to do! But right now, I'm so peaceful. I've never been happier in my life."

Ryan Reynolds will do that to a girl!
