Green Lantern actors Blake Lively and Ryan Reynold’s love story is straight out of a rom-com. On Thursday, Sept. 15, the two revealed that they're stepping into a new chapter.

The memes about Taylor Swift and Blake Lively's baby explained!

News of Blake’s pregnancy surfaced online soon after Taylor announced the release of Midnights, and Swifties suspect that their timing is no coincidence. After all, Taylor did draw inspiration from the celebrity couple on her eighth studio album, Folklore, released in the summer of 2020.

Taylor’s Billboard 100 single “Betty” featured the names of Blake and Ryan’s two eldest children — James and Inez. At the time, the name of Blake and Ryan's third child had yet to be confirmed, but many fans suspected that the title of the song was a not-so-subtle hint.

Later, Ryan opened up about his and Blake’s tight-knit relationship with Taylor and shared his thoughts on “Betty.” In an interview with the Daily Mail, he described the song as “pretty damn amazing.”

Although the song obviously centers around fictional characters and not his children, Ryan said the shoutout was “an honor.” The actor added, “The names are the names of our kids. We trust [Taylor] implicitly. She's very sensitive to any of that stuff.”

It's all coming together now...

If one plus one is two and two plus two is four, that means that Blake will drop her baby on the same day that Taylor releases Reputation (Taylor's Version). It all makes sense.
