Ryan Reynolds ran his very attractive mouth on Conan last night (they also made out ICYMI), accidentally revealing the gender of his one-month-old baby with wife Blake Lively, People reports. This apparently pissed off Lively because they were keeping the gender of their newborn a secret.
Luckily we can all stop wondering because we now know, it's a GIRL! This makes her the second daughter for the couple, who are also parents to two-year-old James.
According to People, Reynolds told host Conan O’Brien last night that he is a father to two daughters, after joking that he only did the show to get out of the house. Because "having two kids under two is rough."
The 40-year-old Deadpool star is clearly already embracing the role of hilariously beleaguered dad. "Yeah a lot of estrogen," he said. "It’s like an American Girl doll took a shit on my life." LOL.
In an Instagram post last night, actress Blake Lively confirmed rumors that she was mad at him for the slip but added that the problem was resolved thanks to some good old fashioned bribery with cookies. Husbands: take notes.
But why were they keeping their new baby's gender a secret?? Maybe because they're progressive and gender is fluid and a construct etc. Or maybe they just knew that the best way to make everyone curious about something is to keep it a secret. I've actually been wondering about the gender of this baby, which is weird, because I'll probably never meet it let alone have to buy it a onesie.
Oh well, cheers to the growing family! Gender is a construct!
