Surprise: Taylor Swift Announced Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds's Third Daughter's Name!

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds officially welcomed their third baby girl in 2019, and it seems as though Taylor Swift was given the honor of sharing her name nearly a year later: Betty Reynolds. The couple surprised everyone with the news of their third child's arrival when on Oct. 4, 2019, it was confirmed that Blake had given birth sometime in September, but because these celebrity parents are pretty private, we can't say we're surprised that they kept the news under wraps for so long.

Then, when Taylor Swift dropped her surprise new album, Folklore, on July 24, fans speculated that the little one's name was finally revealed in a song titled "Betty." Taylor sings: "You heard the rumors from Inez / You can't believe a word she says / Most times, but this time it was true / The worst thing that I ever did / Was what I did to you . . . She said, 'James, get in, let's drive' / Those days turned into nights / Slept next to her, but / I dreamt of you all summer long."

Because the 30-year-old singer mentions the names of Blake and Ryan's two older daughters, Inez and James, fans theorized that Betty, the only other name in the song, belongs to the youngest Reynolds girl. "Inez??? James??? What if Betty is the name of Blake Livelys third kid," one fan wrote on Twitter. Another added: "The way that Taylor used the names Inez and James in Betty because those are the names of Blake and Ryan's children 🥺🥺 she really does love those kids." Later on the day of the album's release, a source confirmed that the youngest Reynolds is, in fact, named Betty.

This isn't the first time Taylor has featured the Reynolds girls in her music. In her song "Gorgeous" on the Reputation album, Blake's oldest daughter, James, can be heard in the beginning of the track, and Blake has shared that her kids are big fans of Taylor. So the fact that the singer would use her surprise music drop to share the couple's child's name isn't all that out there.

Although Blake and Ryan don't show off their kids often, we hope we get a little peek at Betty eventually!
