Photos Of Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds' Kid Are Hard To Find, & That's Not An Accident


Celeb parents all have different style when it comes to their kids' privacy. Some parents are happy to share photos of their little ones in magazine photo shoots or show off personal snaps on social media, while others work really hard to make sure as few details as possible about their children's lives become public knowledge. They may have just announced their second pregnancy, but you won't find photos of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' kid floating around the Internet, and that's because they don't want you to. In fact, according to Us Weekly, it took the couple a year to even announce their daughter's birthdate! Little James Reynolds is 17 months old now, but there are still only a few photos of her to be seen — and other than some very unauthorized paparazzi shots, none of them actually feature her face (even though it's pretty safe to say she's probably totally adorable).

Why have Lively and Reynolds opted to keep details about their daughter hush hush? According to Glamour, it mostly just comes down to not wanting to embarrass her. On keeping James' name a secret for months after her birth, Reynolds told the mag,

But that's not to say Reynolds is totally opposed to sharing glimpses of his life as a dad with the world. He's opened up about some of his fatherhood experiences in interviews and on his own social media account and has shared a couple super sweet photos too, like this Instagram photo from a year ago:

One thing Reynolds isn't shy about talking about? How much he really loves being a dad. Not long after James' birth, Reynolds raved to David Letterman about his new daughter and his wife in the most hilariously loving of ways. According to People, Reynolds told the former Late Show host,

And if that wasn't already adorable, Reynolds also admired Lively's decision to exclusively breastfeed their daughter despite how much work is involved:

But the love and admiration clearly goes both ways: on Father's Day last year, Lively took to her own Instagram account to share a photo of her husband carrying James in a baby carrier, and it was the cutest:

It's pretty safe to assume at this point that not only should we probably not be expecting any publicly-shared family portraits anytime soon, but details on their baby-to-be likely won't be plentiful either. But even without the social media oversharing, it's still clear that this is one super devoted family — and whatever we get to learn about their private life is just icing on the cake.
