Ryan Reynolds Defends Naming His Daughter James
The 39-year-old Deadpool actor says that his daughter was named after his father James, who died last October after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.
“My father just passed away, but my daughter’s named after him,” he said.
“In the spectrum of weird celebrity baby names, I feel like we’re really not breaking new ground here. I didn’t call her Summer Squash Meadowlark,” Ryan said on ITV’s Good Morning Britain. “I also thought of going with all the letters silent in her name and it’d just be pronounced [long breath out]. I’m just giving dumb celebrities ideas.”
