Hospital Nurse Tweets Blake Lively's Baby Name & Rumors Fly

blake lively ryan reynoldsNew parents Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds surprised us all when they managed to keep the birth of their first child completely under the radar. But that's as sneaky as they could get. Now it looks like their baby sex and name secret was completely spoiled by a nurse at the hospital where Lively delivered. In a tweet that has since been deleted, the nurse congratulated Lively on the birth of her daughter Violet. Uh oh!


Page Six was the first to report the news and sources have confirmed that the baby is a girl. As for the name, there has been no official confirmation, but if the tweet says anything, we're pretty sure it's a flower of a name.

Jezebel managed to grab a snapshot of the tweet, posted by someone who claims to work at Westchester Medical Center, which said:

Congrats @blakelively #blakelively glad to have you and baby girl violet in our care

That reveal was quickly followed by another tweet:

I think I'm in trouble

Yikes. You got that right.

The initial tweet sure seems like it could possibly be real. But for now, we're definitely loving on the name. Violet peaked as a name for girls in the 1910s but has seen a steady increase in popularity over the past couple years. Possibly after Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner named their first daughter Violet.

Is it true? Only time will tell.

Congratulations to the couple!

Do you think the story is true? What do you think of the name Violet?
