Ryan Reynolds finally spills about his baby girl’s name!


Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are no strangers to the limelight, but they are insistent that their daughter will be.

The couple made no official announcement after welcoming their first child together in late December, and they have yet to reveal her name either.

Although a tweet reportedly sent by a member of staff at the Westchester Medical Center listed the newborn's name as Violet, Ryan stated earlier this week that this was not the case. "No that’s not the name. I don’t want to get into that but I don’t know where that came from," he told USA Today.

On an interview with David Letterman last night, the actor still refused to give an exact name – though he did give us a few more clues! 

During a grilling from David, Ryan admitted that their daughter had been given a "family name," though she is definitely not named for Blake's mum Elaine.

The actor stayed cool and shook his head as David ran through a list of names including Olivia, Sophia and Emma. When asked if he would let his daughter know her own name eventually, Ryan joked, "I'm thinking of letting her know."

The Proposal actor says he and Blake have a good reason for staying schtum, though. "I don't want to say it in a media context," he said. "I tell everyone who I meet, so it'll come out."

The actor gushed about his newfound life as a father, saying, "I'm not one for vomiting declarations of sentiment out across the airwaves, but when we had that baby, I fell more in love with my wife than I'd ever been in my entire life. I couldn't even believe it."

As for the daddy-daughter bond, Ryan admitted, "I used to say to [Blake], 'I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you.'…And the second I looked in that baby's eyes, I knew in that exact moment that if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby."

Aaaaw… or not!
