Ryan Reynolds Shares the First Photo of Baby James!


It's about time! Five months after Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively welcomed daughter James into the world, they finally (kind of) debuted their baby girl on social media. Instagram newbie Reynolds shared a heartwarmingly adorable photo of James clutching his thumb in her tiny hand.

"Thumb wrestling isn't always fair. Curiously, my hand is the small one," he humorously captioned the photo. Sure, we can't actually see baby James's face, but come on — with those two as parents, is there any doubt that she's gorgeous? Reynolds once said that James had him "wrapped around her finger," but clearly, the opposite is true.

Reynolds only joined Instagram three days ago, but if he keeps up this habit of sharing cute morsels of his home life, we'll have no complaints. His previous hesitance to share photos of James seems about right, given the rest of their behavior since becoming parents. They waited several weeks to announce their daughter's birth, and even longer to reveal her name.

Not that they haven't had fun with it along the way. In their own sweet way, they've been plenty open about how much they love having a little one running around. "Our baby in particular is, we think, allergic to sleep," Reynolds said in March of James's up-all-night behavior.

Meanwhile, Lively's made jokes of her own about how having a baby has changed her life. "With all the wardrobe changes, one thing I hadn't accounted for was that I didn't have time to pump," she said of managing motherhood amid her busy schedule promoting The Age of Adaline last month. "So my proportions definitely started to, shall we say, increase throughout the day."
