Ryan Reynolds + Blake Lively Confirm Chosen Baby Name

There’s been a lot of fervor over what Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively named their baby girl (what with all those reports), and since Reynolds finally revealed her moniker you can all settle down now.

The duo named their child (drum roll please)…


“You did say a few months ago, before she was born, that you were going to name her Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds,” Today show host Willie Geist joked.

To which Reynolds responded, “That is not the child’s name. It’s Butternut Summersquash.”

He then went on to confirm, “It’s James. Everyone knows.”

Yes, everyone does.

“I didn’t want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media,” the actor explained. “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 pair welcomed baby James into the world almost three months ago.
