  • Ryan Reynolds has confirmed that the couple's baby girl isn't called Violet and we've actually all be duped...

    When Blake Lively gave birth to a girl at the end of December, the only detail given to the world was that baby Lively-Reynolds was happy, healthy and presumably tucked up in bed, drinking almond milk and getting ready for an impossibly perfect, vegan life.

    But then a quickly deleted tweet from someone claiming to work at the Westchester Medical Centre where Blake gave birth read, ‘Congrats @blakelively #blakelively glad to have you and baby girl violet in our care.’

    We all believed it and everyone seemed very happy with the perfectly normal, but very pretty celebrity baby name. But apparently, we’ve all been duped. Because, despite being a completely closed book when it comes to his private life, Ryan Reynolds has squashed rumours that he and Blake Lively named their new baby girl Violet in one comment.

    Speaking to USA Today and disappointing fans everywhere, Ryan said, ‘No that’s not the name. I don’t want to get into that but I don’t know where that came from.’

    Of course, Ryan didn’t go as far to reveal the real name of his baby, but he did add, ‘I don’t sleep very much. It’s great. It’s wonderful. But my brain is elsewhere. I had to go to Sundance this last week. I was more excited to get a good night’s sleep. It was borderline pornographic for me.’

    Fingers crossed the couple reveal their chosen baby name soon…
