Blake Lively doesn't let her hectic schedule affect her family life.

The 30-year-old actress has revealed she and her husband Ryan Reynolds - with whom she has two daughters, James, two, and Ines, 12 months - don't work at the same time, and so the family are able to ''stay together'', and never spend more than a day apart.

She said: ''My husband and I don't work at the same time, so we all go together as a family. If we're away as a family, it's never more than for a day. We stay together.''

But whilst 'The Age of Adaline' actress loves spending time with her family, she also admits travelling with two young tots can be a nightmare at times.

Blake is never far from her family even when she's working, as her youngest daughter Ines often joins her on set.

She added to People magazine: ''I'm not in an office where I can't do that, so she's either with me or when I'm shooting a scene, she's one room away. If she really needs me, I can pop over there.''

It comes after 'The Shallows' actress recently admitted she hopes Ines will become a chef when she's older, as she's already showing a keen interest in food.

Blake said: ''My little one, oh she's just so divine. She came out of the womb a little foodie. She'll eat whatever.

''We're always like, 'What's your signature special,' because she's always reaching for anything.

''I'm like a parent of an Olympian except I want a chef baby.''

And while Innes is concentrating on her love of food, Blake admitted James is more like a baby than her younger sister.

She added: ''What's crazy is my two-and-a-half-year-old, she wakes up at night and she's the baby, basically.

''I think you're more relaxed as a parent [the second time], and the first one is very dominating anyways so I think the second baby just has to be easier.''
