Ryan Reynolds Defends Naming His Daughter James

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have a 13-month-old daughter named James and the actor is opening up about why they picked out that name.

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.”

    The only thing fucked up here is your reaction. So it’s a girl with the name of James? Unless you’re very uncomfortable with gender, no one gives a shit.

  • InvisiGhost

    the most f^kd up thing is all of your useless and negative comments on a comment that was meant to be taken more sarcastically than serious..the fact that you made it serious is kinda yea

  • Sythana
