Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds officially welcomed baby number three in September 2019, and while they are a pretty private celebrity family, we have gotten a glimpse of their gorgeous girls; and every so often, Blake or Ryan will speak about their parenting experiences.
Here's what we know about the Reynolds girls so far!
The couple married in 2012 and welcomed their first daughter, James, on Dec. 16, 2014. The little one made her public debut alongside her parents at Ryan's Hollywood Walk of Fame Star ceremony right before her second birthday, and she obviously stole the entire show in the cutest outfit. In September 2018, we got a look into James's humor when Blake shared what the toddler thought her parents' anniversary meant.
"I had to explain to my daughter what an anniversary is. She's like, 'What is it, does it mean you're having another baby today?' and I was like, 'Dear God, no, it doesn't. It means it's our wedding's birthday.'" She definitely had a bit of intuition about her future baby sister there!
Ryan and Blake's second daughter, Inez, was born on Sept. 30, 2016 — less than two months before she also made her public debut at her dad's Star ceremony. Inez earned her big sister badge right around the time she turned 3, but other than that, we admittedly don't know much about her. We do know, however that Ryan plans on following her and her sister to college one day, so, godspeed, Inez!
Although Blake and Ryan hadn't released their baby's name at the time, Ryan hinted that they had welcomed another baby girl via Twitter on Oct. 16, 2019. "I love B.C. I want my daughters to experience the same natural playground I grew up in," he wrote, along with a sweet photo of himself, Blake, and the new baby.
Then, on July 24, fans speculated that Taylor Swift had revealed the little one's name in a song on her surprise eighth album, Folklore. In a song titled "Betty," the singer uses both Inez and James's names. Because Betty is the only other name in the song, fans theorized that Betty is the name of the couple's third daughter, and later that day, it was confirmed by a source close to the situation that the rumors were true! As the whole family are fans of Taylor and James's little voice appears in Taylor's song "Gorgeous" on the Reputation album, it isn't all that surprising that Blake and Ryan would let Taylor break the secrecy on Betty's name.
In a November interview, Ryan sort of admitted that Betty is his favorite kid, at least right now. "I have a new baby," he said of his youngest. "She's a little over a year now, so I really like hanging out with her, cause it's fun watching her grow up." This was all said, however, before Betty developed a "Baby Shark" obsession in April 2021. Jury's out on whether or not she's still his favorite!
