We FINALLY know Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' daughter's name. It's James. Reynolds confirmed it in an interview with WIllie Geist on the Today show. There, was that so hard? Apparently so. We understand the whole privacy thing. Really, we do. However, Lively and Reynolds were reaching the point of withholding where they've refused so much that it makes the media and paparazzi desperate. That's not a tipping point you want to find yourself on the wrong side of. Blake and Ryan are public figures, so just say the name, and we can all move on with our lives. Of course, this interview came with a whole new round of joking about the name of one sweet baby James. "You did say...before she was born, that you were going to name her Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds," Geist joked. "That is not the child's name. It's Butternut Summersquash," Reynolds riffed back. Honestly, we wouldn't put it past the Preserve team, although, what nickname do you give a child named Butternut? The mind reels with unfortunate options. Of course, we still don't know James' middle name, but this first-name confirmation will hopefully stave off the moniker-hungry media until her parents are ready to let the world know. Or, we can just assume that it's Kumquat. James Kumquat Lively-Reynolds. (Today)
