  • Taylor Swift revealed the name of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s third child in her new album Folklore.

  • Taylor included the names of Blake and Ryan’s other kids, Inez and James, in the song “Betty,” which tipped off fans that something was up.

Update: July 27, 2020

The Swifties called it: Blake and Ryan’s third baby is named Betty after all, according to People. The outlet’s insider said, “The song was named in part for the couple’s third daughter,” so there you go.

Taylor Swift just blessed everyone’s quarantine with an entire surprise album called Folklore, and naturally, her fans morphed into detectives on the hunt for Easter eggs. Which brings us to the song “Betty,” which Swifties have decided is the name of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ third child. It kinda makes sense, just go with it.

The thing is, the song has lyrics that feature the names of Ryan and Blake’s other two kids, Inez and James. Exhibit A:

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



Exhibit B:

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


So basically, the theory is that if Taylor mentioned James and Inez, it stands to reason she’d also give a shout-out to Blake and Ryan’s third child (whose name hasn’t been publicly revealed), and the only other name in this song is Betty. Sooooo…yeah!
