Ryan Reynolds has dropped a bombshell

Turns out Violet is NOT their baby’s name and sleep is pornographic.

We’ve all been living a lie. A really big lie. You see, we’ve all been going about our daily business, writing headlines like “Violet has godparents!” and “Everyone says Blake Lively is a great mum to Violet!” which is all well and good until you find out baby Violet doesn’t even exist.

Ryan Reynolds (AKA one half of the most genetically blessed couple in the world) has just told USA Today that his daughter’s name is not Violet.

“No, that’s not the name,” he added. “I don’t want to get into that but I don’t know where that came from.”

We do. Someone who reportedly worked at the clinic Blake gave birth in posted that name to Twitter and we all believed it. Now, either Ryan and Blake were throwing around faux names on the birth certificate or their inner circle are really, REALLY good at keeping secrets. Either way, we still don’t know their daughter’s name. Boo. On the plus side, it means Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds is back in the game!

Ryan also dished some deets on how tricky it is being away from his little girl, though there are some benefits.

“It’s still so new that it’s hard to conceive being away for more than seven hours at a time,” he explained. “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.”

We totally feel you on the sleep front, Ryan.

“You are operating on a week’s worth of sleep amortised over six months. You don’t get a lot of sleep,” he further explained to Extra.

“It’s weird to wake up in the middle of the night 45 times and always be in a good mood. I’m not used to that, so that’s fun.”

Could he BE any cuter? No. The answer is no.
