It’s Official: Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s Daughter’s Name Is…

The Reynolds Name Game
Before the big reveal, Ryan Reynolds explained why he wanted to keep his daughter's name a secret.

It’s true folks. We can finally get on with our lives because Ryan Reynolds has revealed — for real this time — what he and Blake Lively named their 3-month-old baby daughter.

On Friday morning, the handsome Canadian told The Today Show’s Willy Geist what we already know.

“It’s Butternut Summer Squash,” Reynolds joked. “No it’s out there. It’s James. Everyone knows.”

The big reveal comes just weeks after E! broke the news that the 38-year-old actor’s firstborn goes by the name of James.

“I told everyone who would listen,” Reynolds continued. “Before it was out there, I didn’t want to be the first guy screaming 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?’”

So there you have it, friends. The most beautiful baby in the world is named James Reynolds. Or something like that.
