Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are undoubtedly one of the most beautiful couples we've ever seen, and they're also incredibly stylish. So it's only fitting they would pick a chic name for their daughter, who was born in January. After much speculation, E! Online has announced the name.
Baby Lively-Reynolds is named ...
Originally, rumors swirled that the girl's name was Violet. Reynolds denied that her name was Violet, and a source revealed to E! that it was in fact James. We love the unique use of the name for a baby girl. Actress Jaime King used to go by James, and it's totally fitting with the trend of anything goes with baby names. With a mama named Blake, it's a family of unusual baby names that we're obsessed with.
Blake's lifestyle site, Preserve, has a definite family focus, including a shop section that features gorgeous baby clothes, toys and accessories—perfect for baby James! She announced her pregnancy in October 2014 on the site along with a beautiful bump photo.
One thing is for sure, it's clearly Ryan and Blake loving being parents. At Sundance, he gushed over fatherhood saying, it's "amazing" to E! News. He was even in good spirits about sleepless nights with a newborn, saying "The least impressive thing is the complete lack of sleep."
Ryan says little baby James has him wrapped around her finger but "that started well before she was born!" he said to E!.
