Ryan Reynolds has spoken out and denied that he and his wife Blake Lively called their baby daughter Violet.

Gossip Girl star Blake gave birth to their little girl last month and it was widely reported that they had settled upon the pretty name.

However, in a new interview, Ryan has admitted that he and Blake are baffled, as that is not the tot's moniker at all!

Although he wouldn't reveal what his daughter is called, Ryan told USA Today: "No that's not the name. I don't want to get into that but I don't know where that came from."

American actress Blake announced her pregnancy news in October last year after posting a snap of herself with a baby bump on her website Preserve.

However, once their baby had been born, Blake and Ryan - who are notoriously private - kept the news quiet.

Later, a tweet purporting to come from a hospital source claimed they had called their daughter Violet, however it was later deleted.

Now we know why!

Blake and Ryan – who starred together in action movie Green Lantern - married in 2012.
