Taylor Swift fans speculate that she revealed the name of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ unborn fourth child
Taylor Swift fans are convinced that she revealed the name of close friends Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ fourth child in a verse of her song, You’re On Your Own, Kid.
Ahead of the birth of the couple’s latest addition, which is due in February or March 2023, Twitter users of a specific name went wild over the idea that the pop star, 32, had publicly revealed the nickname of the unborn baby.
While the theory remains unconfirmed, the Swifties believe they cracked an Easter egg that the 45-year-old Deadpool actor and his 35-year-old wife plan to name their little Daisy May.
Sparking theories: Taylor Swift fans are convinced that she revealed the name of the fourth child of her close friends Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds in a verse of her song, You’re On Your Own, Kid
The name was taken from Swift’s lyrics: “I see the great escape, see you later, Daisy May / I picked the petals, he don’t love me / Something different bloomed, writing in my room / I play my songs in the parking lot”.
This comes two years after she shared Lively and Reynolds’ daughter’s name on her emotional track, Betty.
On the same album, Folklore, the 11-time Grammy winner also included the names of the couple’s other children, seven-year-old James and six-year-old Inez, on the hit.
Another girl on the way? While the theory remains unconfirmed, the Swifties believe they cracked an Easter egg that the 45-year-old Deadpool actor and his 35-year-old wife plan to name their little Daisy May.
At the time, he confirmed that he ‘named all the characters in this story after’ the ‘children of his friends’.
Additionally, Swift gave fans a deeper insight into the meaning behind her song, which is told from a male perspective about a teenage boy trying to apologize to Betty, who he cheated on.
“He lost the love of his life, basically, and he doesn’t understand how to get him back. I think we all have these situations in our lives where we learn to give a sincere apology for the first time,” the Cardigan singer explained.

She added: “Everyone makes mistakes, everyone really messes up sometimes.”
‘This is a song I wrote from the perspective of a 17-year-old boy. And I’ve always loved that in music you can slip into different identities and you can sing from other people’s perspective, and that’s what I did in this one,’ added the hitmaker.
Swift previously sampled her friend’s oldest daughter on her single, Gorgeous, in 2017.

The Cats actress and Lively have been friends since around 2015, so it’s no surprise that she’s paying tribute to the actress’ growing family.
While accepting her third award for Album of the Year for Folklore at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards in 2021, Swift again named her friend’s children.
“I want to thank James, Inez and Betty and their parents, who are the second and third person I play for every new song I write,” he gushed at the time.
