Part-time actress and lifestyle maven Blake Lively gave birth prematurely in December to a child shrouded in mystery, just like Jesus. But now we might know the baby's name and sex, thanks to a loose-lipped employee at the hospital where Lively gave birth. (She has since taken her Twitter account private.)

According to this woman, Blake and her husband, Ryan Reynolds, have named their daughter Violet, perhaps after the color, or maybe as homage to the bratty girl from Peanuts. Maybe they're just really big Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fans.

Granted, it's possible the whole thing is a hoax anyway. Lively's rep Leslie Sloane has not even confirmed that Lively gave birth, much less the name and sex of the child. However, the tweeter claims to work for Westchester Medical Center, a hospital relatively close to Lively and Reynolds's Bedford, New York, home. Plus, according to its website, Westchester Medical Center is equipped to handle high-risk pregnancies, such as a premature delivery.

As for our mysterious snitch, she's probably looking for a new job.

As previously reported, Lively is said to have given birth just before the new year. Though the delivery was slightly premature, both baby and mom are said to be doing well. "Violet" is the first child for Lively, 27, and Reynolds, 38.
