Ryan Reynolds has finally revealed the day his daughter was born, 16 December 2014.

Last December, Ryan and his wife Blake Lively welcomed their first child together, but didn't announce their baby girl's arrival until earlier this year.

Until now, we had been clueless as to the exact date James had been welcomed into the world - asides from knowing Blake gave birth before we saw in 2015. Now, though, Ryan has spilled all while celebrating his daughter's first birthday.

Taking to Twitter yesterday, Ryan marked the milestone by sending his birthday wishes to daughter James. And known for making a joke or two, he couldn't do so without adding a little humour, tweeting: "Happy birthday to my baby girl! Sad I lost my virginity. But thankful I have a daughter."

Known for being notoriously private when it comes to their personal life, Blake and Ryan never actually announced James' arrival publicly, until they began to speak about their daughter in interviews a month later.

After having his first taste of parenthood, Ryan gushed: "It's amazing that you can be that exhausted and that happy at the same time,"

While Blake admitted she and her husband have become total rivals when competing for their daughter's attention, Ryan admitted James had him wrapped around her little finger already at three months.

Fans of the couple are still waiting to see pictures of Blake and Ryan's baby girl, as the pair have made sure to keep James' well away from the limelight.

Back in May, Ryan did share one photo of the tot, though. He shared a snap of himself holding James' hand to Instagram, joking: "Thumb wrestling isn't always fair."

We'll take what we can get!
