Blake Lively does it all.
In addition to being a frequent Vogue cover girl, an avid baker and the founder of her own lifestyle brand, the 27-year-old former Gossip Girl star now says she can also fix motorcycles in her spare time. In a new interview with O, The Oprah Magazine for their April 2015 issue, Blake reveals her surprising skill.
"Creating something I can use," she says when asked what the best stress reliever is for her. "I'll knit or cook -- or work on a motorcycle, a skill my husband is teaching me. One of my latest projects was painting nature-inspired throw pillows."

Further locking down her status as the ideal woman, the new mom also apparently doesn't count calories -- she picked a hot fudge sundae as her best quick recipe.
"But forget the fake syrupy stuff; Melt down a bar of chocolate, mix it into some warmed up whipping cream, and put it on top of ice cream," she shares. "Add some sprinkles, and you've got a delicious treat."
Blake credits her whimsical outlook on life to her mother.
"My mom liked to infuse my life with a lot of magic," she recalls. "When she read my fortune cookies, the predictions were full of princesses and castles and jewels and pirates. When I got old enough to read them, I was shocked to find out how boring they really were!”

In December, Blake welcomed her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds, though they have yet to confirm their daughter's name -- but reports say the gorgeous couple decided to name their baby girl James.
