Ryan Reynolds confirms Daughter’s Name on TODAY

Ryan Reynolds reveals his baby’s name on TODAY
By Ree Hines

It’s been almost three months since Ryan Reynolds and wife Blake Lively welcomed their first child. But in all that time, the private parents haven’t shared their baby girl’s name publicly — until now.

TODAY’s Willie Geist recently sat down with Reynolds to talk about the actor’s film, “Woman in Gold,” and the new dad opened up about the once-top-secret topic

“You did say a few months ago, before she was born, that you were going to name her Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds,” Geist mentioned in a portion of that chat that aired Friday morning. “So can we call her Anna at least — short for Anaconda?”

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

What a lovely … joke!

“It’s James,” the proud papa said on a more serious note. “Everyone knows.”

Yes, while James (along with Violet and a few other lovely baby names) was widely rumored to be Reynolds’ and Lively’s pick, it’s now confirmed.

“I didn’t want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media,” Reynolds 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?'”

Now there’s a dad who’s thinking ahead.

So now we can finally — officially — wish little James a warm welcome to the world.Some may think of James as a traditionally masculine name, but it’s actually long been used for both boys and girls — just a bit more frequently for the former. Of course a gender-neutral name seems fitting for the daughter of two stars with equally flexible first names.

Catch Geist’s full interview with Reynolds Wednesday, April 1, on TODAY. And see more from Reynolds that same day, as “Woman in Gold” opens in theaters nationwide.

Just married – Blake and Ryan

Even though there was no official statement, it seems to be true that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively married on September 9, 2012! To be honest, I was extremely shocked when I heard the news, I did not expect that it all, but obviously they are very happy together and that is all that matters. I guess “Green Lantern” was the best thing that could happen to Ryan. :) I wish them all the best.
