Ryan Reynolds Confirms Daughter’s Name is ‘James’ + Stylish Kids Shoes

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are pretty good at keeping secrets. Since Lively gave birth over the holidays, the power couple has kept their baby’s name under wraps. Until now.

Reynolds turned to “The Today Show” to confirm their daughter’s name: “James.”

The full interview will run on April 1, but a teaser released on Friday was just enough to create buzz.”It’s ‘James,'” he said in the clip. “Everyone knows.”

This comes as a bit of a relief after an earlier interview with NBC Anchor Willie Geist, when Reynolds quipped that potential names included “Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds” and “Butternut Summersquash.”

Also in the interview, Reynolds discusses why the couple waited on the name confirmation.

“Before it was out there, I didn’t want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media,” he told “Today.” “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 that baby James is out there, will we start seeing public appearances with her, too? Just in case, FN rounded up a few stylish kids’ shoes fit for the daughter of two A-listers, for you to click through.

Elsewhere, Lively made headlines for her fashionable choices on the front row at New York Fashion Week. The actress, who stars in next month’s “The Age of Adaline,” is a well-known fan of red hot designer Christian Louboutin. At the Marchesa show, she also made a statement in lemon-colored heels by the designer.
