Six months after welcoming baby James to the world, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively shared the first photo of their little one — well, a photo of her fingers. Ryan used his three-day-old Instagram account to show off his little one "thumb wrestling" with him, captioning the photo, "Thumb wrestling isn't always fair. Curiously, my hand is the small one." Blake then regrammed the photo, adding, "and with that, my husband @vancityreynolds joins Insta." It took the couple three months to confirm James's name to the press, so it is no surprise that it took even longer for them to share a photo.
While James's debut was a low-key one, for a long time running, it seemed People had a monopoly on introductory celebrity baby photos. Nicole Richie, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, and the Jolie-Pitts all turned to the well-established magazine to show off their newest family members. However, today, many celebs are turning to competitors who are doling out generous offerings to new parents. Others are releasing their own photos — either on their own or through photo agencies — to bypass the whole magazine scenario.
