They remained notoriously tight-lipped regarding the details of their first child’s birth, and it took many months of exhaustive guessing before we finally learned that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ daughter was named James.
The Hollywood couple appeared to have adopted the same stance upon welcoming their second child last month, too – until last night, that is.
The Twitter world has gone into a bit of a spin over Ryan’s latest tweet, in which he appears to have revealed that he and Blake welcomed a daughter.
The mobile above my daughter's crib is just a whole bunch of NuvaRings. So she remembers how lucky she is.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) October 20, 2016
The Deadpool star is known for his hilarious tweets, regularly poking fun at parenthood, but his latest joke provided much more than entertainment to his 3.89M-strong Twitter following.
“The mobile above my daughter’s crib is just a whole bunch of NuvaRings. So she remembers how lucky she is,” the tweet read.
The 39-year-old’s social media following exploded with excitement, and questions regarding his second-born quickly filled up his timeline.
“So it’s a girl?” replied one follower, while another chimed in, “Ryan, did you have another girl? James is too old for a mobile.”
We’re awaiting the confirmation, but since James is now 21 months old, we think all evidence points towards a baby girl.
Now, come on guys – give us the name!
