Ryan Reynolds Jokes About Taylor Swift Naming His Kids on Today Show

Ryan Reynolds appeared on the Today show on Monday, where he playfully addressed rumors that Taylor Swift had included the name of his and Blake Lively's fourth child in her latest album. The couple, who welcomed their newest addition in early 2023, have kept the baby's name private.

When hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb asked if the name was featured on Swift's album The Tortured Poets Department, Reynolds joked, "We always wait for Taylor to tell us the child's name." He added, "We'll say this, we're still waiting. She's a prolific writer I mean, what are we doing here. Lazy is not a word I'd attach to Taylor."

This is not the first time Swift has included the names of Reynolds and Lively's children in her music. The names of their second and third daughters, Inez and Betty, were revealed in Swift's song "Betty" from her 2020 album folklore. James, their eldest, was also mentioned in Swift's 2017 song "Gorgeous."

Reynolds and Lively, who married in 2012, are known for keeping details about their children private. They never find out the sex of their babies until they are born. Reynolds previously shared that they kept the fact that their daughters' names were in "Betty" a secret from the girls until the song was finished.

During the Today interview, Reynolds also joked about being a single father for the weekend when Lively traveled to the Super Bowl with Swift, saying he felt like the Reba McEntire song "I'm a Survivor." He shared an anecdote about his daughter Betty's vivid imagination and frequent imaginary friends.

While Swift's new album features names like Cassandra, Peter, Chloe, Sam, Sophia, Marcus, Robin, and Aimee, none have been confirmed as the moniker of Reynolds and Lively's fourth child. For now, as Reynolds quipped, they are still waiting for Swift to reveal the chosen name to them and the world.
