For months the world we were convinced that they’d called their first-born Violet, but now Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have FINALLY confirmed the real name of their baby daughter.
Three whole months after welcoming the little one into the world (they sure know how to keep us guessing), A-lister Ryan has revealed that their little one is called James.
While the moniker is usually reserved for a boy, we think it’s *seriously* cute for a little girl.
Speaking on the Today Show, Ryan started out by joking around, saying: “It is Butternut Summersquash. No, it’s out there. It’s out there. It’s James. Everyone knows and I told everyone who would listen that.”
He added: “Before it was out there I didn’t want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls and little teenage girls sometimes scan through the archives and go, “Why did you do that?”‘
The 38-year-old didn’t seem too keen about making the big reveal just a few days before, when he admitted that he’d be in a ‘world of pain’ if he did.
He said: “That little girl will grow up to be a teenager who will find out that I blurted her name out on national television and probably make me pay for it. She will exact her revenge in searing, psychic pain.”
The couple welcomed their bundle of joy just before the new year, but understandably kept things pretty private, not revealing a name or even mentioning how ruddy adorable we assume she is.
The rumour mill DID start spinning last month when a nurse at the hospital where James was born reportedly let slip that the name was Violet.
But it later turned out that it was all just a bit of a hoax, as Ryan later told USA Today that Violet was most definitely not her name.
He revealed: “No, that’s not the name. I don’t want to get into that but I don’t know where that came from.”
Now the whole name debacle is cleared up we just need a piccie of the little one… let’s just hope we don’t have to wait another three months.
