Blake Lively hopes her daughter will cook with her.

The 27-year-old actress insists she will embrace whatever interests four-month-old James grows up to develop, but knows she will be ''fighting'' her husband Ran Reynolds over who gets to spend the most time sharing hobbies with their little girl.

She said: ''I don't think you can plan anything. You are just kind of surviving day by day and trying to make life as lovely as possible for your child.

''I would love for her to want to cook with me. I'd love for her to want to bake with me but if she just wants to, like, you know, play with GI Joes and race cars, then I'm fine with that too. Whatever she wants, I'm happy about.

''I would love it if we shared those interests but I have a feeling I'm going to be fighting my husband on interests because he just loves that little girl.''

The 'Age of Adaline' star will be hoping to be as much an inspiration to her little girl as her own mother was to her.

She said: ''My mom was the one who inspired me. She raised us in a way that meant she always created a moment out of everything - whether it was a flower arrangement, a meal or re-upholstering some piece of c**p that was sitting on the side of the road.

''She's an amazing cook. She could see a dress and know how to sew it together.

''I'll never be that skilled, but it's so inspiring to have that role model as your mum.''
