Los Angeles: Hollywood couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have urged parents everywhere to take an infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) class.
According to today.com, their Instagram posts about this received over several ‘likes’ in just a few hours.
Lively, who is raising daughters James, 2, and Ines, 8 months, with Reynolds, posted: “All mamas and daddies out there, I can’t recommend this enough, I took a CPR class with a focus on babies and toddlers.”
In the photograph, Lively, known for films like “The Shallows”, “The Age of Adaline”, “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” and TV show “Gossip Girl” – which is aired in India on Colors Infinity – can be seen sitting next to several CPR dummies and a baby doll.
She added: “For those of you who haven’t done it, you will love it. It’s so helpful by giving you knowledge, tools, and some peace of mind.”
Reynolds also posted about the class he and Lively took on his Instagram account, saying that it was a refresher for him and that he once had to use his CPR skills to save his nephew’s life.
He also encouraged parents to take the class, writing, “It takes only a few hours and it’s also kinda, sorta fun.”
