Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have been keeping pretty darn quiet on all things Baby Girl Reynolds-Lively, despite the fact that rumours are claiming they gave her the gorgeous name ‘Violet’.
However, the fit new dad has now spoken out to call BS on the whole affair, revealing that she’s not named after a colour in the rainbow after all.
Would the real Baby Girl ‘Violet’ please stand up.
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.
Until an employee at the hospital where Lively gave birth accidentally may or may not have revealed that they may or may not have named her ‘Violet’.
Cue everyone cooing over the cute name etc etc.
EXCEPT, ladies and gents, it turns out that was probably all just a bit of a hoax, as Ryan, 38, has now told USA Today that that’s not her name at all. Sad times.
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.”
So there you go.
The 27-year-old actress, who announced her pregnancy in October last year, reportedly gave birth earlier than expected near their New York home, according to Page Six.
“The Bedford house is all prepared. They’re going to stay up there for the baby’s first days.”
We bet their little one’s got one helluva nursery!
Although they’re yet to reveal the REAL name for their daughter, Ryan, 38, previously told Canada’s eTalk that he’d had a long, hard think about baby names – and some of them are, erm, interesting to say the least.
He said: “On the plane over here I was trying to think of baby names.
“I don’t want a name that’s anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y. So I’m going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds… That’s if it’s a girl.”
Perhaps that’s the real name they went for after all!
Something tells us we’ll be waiting a long time to find out.
