Having a baby certainly gives you a lot to talk about. New parents Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have both been inundated with questions about their infant daughter, which makes us wonder if every celebrity couple shouldn't embark on a publicity tour right after the birth of their child. Maybe we could just send a news crew into the delivery room, or mic up the crib?

Not that we don't want to hear what little James is up to. According to Lively, appearing on Live! with Kelly and Michael this morning, the infant is a mini Ryan Reynolds, who, by the way, smells like poop now. 

"I think she looks like her daddy," she revealed. "I want a maternity test! I'm not sure about this kid."

Instead of heading off to Maury, Lively spent her morning popping in on Good Morning America. There, she shared the very straightforward reason for naming her daughter James.

"It's a family name, and I liked having a boy's name," Lively said.

Mystery solved. Should you be left wanting more insights into this kid's life, watch the interviews below.
