Did Taylor Swift’s Song ‘Betty’ Confirm Blake Lively’s Third Daughter’s Name?
Taylor Swift might have revealed the name of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' third daughter in the lyrics of the song "Betty."
The buzz surrounding the pop star's latest album, folklore, continues to grow as fans keep busy decoding every single one of her songs in hopes to find hidden Easter eggs — one of which may be Lively and Reynolds' child's name.
Although Reynolds and Lively confirmed the birth of their daughter on October 4, 2019, they never officially announced the baby's name... until now, according to Swifties, who pointed out that Swift used the names of the pair's other children, Inez and James, in the lyrics to "Betty" as well.
"Betty, I know where it all went wrong," she sings. "You heard the rumors from Inez / You can't believe a word she says / Most times, but this time it was true."
Swift later adds in the bridge, "She said 'James, get in, let's drive.'"
Check out some fan reactions, below:
Neither Swift nor Lively nor Reynolds have yet to confirm if the speculation is true, but if it is, the hidden baby name wouldn’t be the first time Swift included one of the couple's kids in her music. James made an appearance on a Swift's song as she was credited on the singer's 2018 track "Gorgeous."
Meanwhile, both the Gossip Girl alum and Deadpool star showed Swift's folklore album some support on social media following its surprise release on July 24. Reynolds shared a screenshot of Swift's "cardigan" music video on his Instagram Story, while Lively posted a lengthy message praising her good friend's new record.
"Can we all please crawl inside that piano with you and live in this album," she wrote on her Instagram Story. "Like you, folklore is full of heart, soul, humor, passion, intelligence, wit, whimsy, reality, imagination, strength, vulnerability, and above all things: LOVE."
