Robyn Lively will always be proud of her baby sister, fellow actress Blake Lively.
Despite their age gap, the elder sibling said their relationship has only gotten stronger over the years. The ‘80s star is the daughter of talent manager Elaine Lively and her first husband Ronald, while the “Gossip Girl” alum’s father is late actor Ernie Lively.
“There’s a significant age gap which feels almost nonexistent because she’s now a mom,” Robyn, 50, told Fox News Digital about the 34-year-old. “We have so many similarities. Our relationship is on a deeper level. We used to help each other with our projects and lines, things like that. Now we’re doing the mom thing together.”
Both women share three children with their significant others. Robyn has been married to “High School Musical” star Bart Johnson for nearly 23 years. As for Blake, she and actor Ryan Reynolds said “I do” in 2012.
“I genuinely feel like her children are mine as if I gave birth to them, and vice versa,” Robyn chuckled. “We’re like, ‘Your children are mine too.’ Our relationship has only gotten richer and fuller.”
Johnson told Fox News Digital that he is always in awe to watch the women interact with each other.
“I’ll say from my perspective, they’re like the same person,” the 51-year-old shared. “They’ve got the same energy and the same sense of humor. They’re also so connected and love each other so much. It’s really gone a long way since Robyn was on ‘Savannah’ and Blake would come to hang out on set as a little girl. Now it feels like that age gap has closed… Our kids are the center of our entire universe. [Robyn and Blake] share the love and the passion for motherhood. They’re best friends. It’s such a charming friendship. It’s a beautiful thing.”
When it comes to giving parenting advice, Robyn insisted it is not needed noting that both women are very in tune with each other’s children.
“I’ve learned so much from her, and she’s learned so much from me,” said Robyn. “I never go in and say, ‘Hey, you should really do this.’ I think we’re constantly observing and learning from each other. I see things that she does with her kids, and I’m like, ‘Oh, that is so great. That’s so wonderful and special.’ Or I’ll go, ‘I love how she handled that’ and then implement that in my life with my kids. And she does the same. It’s like you don’t have to have those types of conversations because you’re so in tune [as sisters]. And we’ve had so many shared experiences together.”
