Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's Baby Name

Ryan Reynolds Confirms Baby's Name (and the Sweet Reason He Waited to Do So)

It's been about two and a half months since Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds became the proud parents of a baby girl. But neither member of the famous couple had come forward to confirm her name . . . until now.

"It's James," Ryan told Today's Willie Geist. "Everyone knows. I told everyone who would listen. I just didn't want to be the first guy screaming out to the media, because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls. Teenage girls sometimes scan through the archives and go, 'Why'd you do that?'"

He may still be new to fatherhood, but it seems that Ryan's already got the protective dad thing down pat, and we applaud him for it! Tune back in to Today on Wednesday, April 1, to see the interview in its entirety and hear more about Ryan and Blake's life with baby James.
