James Reynolds is a firstborn of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. The latter revealed that while Blake was in labor, he played Let’s Get It On song and made the doctor laugh pretty hard. Though James is a male name, the couple decided to name their daughter in such a way to honor Ryan’s dad, who suffered from Parkinson’s disease and passed away in 2015. They had pretty complicated father-son relationship.
Being inspired by her parents, James wants to be an actress and already does little plays at home. However, Ryan doesn’t like that idea. Moreover, you can hear the girl’s voice opening track Gorgeous on Taylor Swift’s album Reputation. Though James isn’t very interested in her father’s movies, she loves Detective Pikachu.
A curious fact: soon after James drew her first breath, Reynolds’s childhood friend tried to sell the girl’s photos. After Deadpool star discovered that, he stopped communicating with the man who betrayed him.
