The time has finally come. A very tight lipped Ryan Reynolds has broken his silence and gave us the goods. The actor revealed his daughter’s name during an interview with Willie Geist on NBC’s Today show. Click to find out!

Ryan Reynolds, 38,  and Blake Lively, 27, can pat themselves on the back. They were able to keep their baby daughter’s name a secret for a long time. The actor gave up the goods on NBC’s Today show, saying his little girl’s name is Butternut Summersquash. So cute!

Ryan Reynolds Finally Confirms His Daughter’s Name

Okay, okay, we will stop teasing and tell you that Ryan and Blake did NOT name their daughter,”Butternut Summersquash,” even though that’s what the actor told Willie Geist on the Today show.

Obviously he was joking, her real name is James!

Yup, how cute is that? We absolutely love the name these two picked out for their little princess.

Ryan went on to tell the host, “It’s James, everyone knows. I didn’t want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media, because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls and little teenage girls sometimes scan through the archives and go, ‘Why did you do that?'” He is the absolute best dad ever!

Ryan Admits His Daughter’s Name Is NOT Violet

Despite a handful of reports claiming the pair named their daughter Violet, Ryan previously made it clear that WASN’T her name. He told USA Today, “No, that’s not the name. I don’t want to get into that but I don’t know where that came from.”

Later, he appeared on the Late Show on Feb. 4, and told David Letterman the name will eventually come out on it’s own. Which of course, it did — by him!

“We definitely [have a name],” he told the host. “I threw out the idea of just never naming the kid to be totally original, but we have a name. I just don’t want to say it in, like, a media context. I tell everyone who I meet, so it’ll come out.”

Congrats on being able to keep it a secret this long Ryan and Blake!
