Ryan Reynolds Finally Confirms Baby's Name & It's Adorable

blake lively ryan reynoldsAfter months of speculation and rumors (and plenty of jokes), Ryan Reynolds has finally confirmed his daughter's name. She arrived back in December, and, as previously thought, Reynolds and wife Blake Lively have named their daughter James.

"I didn't want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media," the new dad says. "Because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls and little teenage girls can sometimes scan through the archives and go, 'Why did you do that?'"

It looks like Dad is just trying to avoid having to give possible future explanations. We can't really blame him for that.

And now, officially, welcome to the world, baby James!

What do you think of the official name?
