Blake Lively Praises New Taylor Swift Album After Rumored Baby Name Reveal

Blake Lively chimed in on Taylor Swift's new album, folklore, after word spread that the set includes the name of her and Ryan Reynolds' newest addition to the family.

Earlier this week, Lively, 32, took to Instagram Story to gush about the 16-track set. "Can we all please crawl inside that piano with you and live in this album," Lively wrote of the project, adding, "Like you folklore is full of heart, soul, humor, passion, intelligence, wit, whimsy, reality, imagination, strength, vulnerability, and above all things: love. We Love you." As for the track on everyone's tongue, which is also one of three cuts about a teenage love triangle, "betty" is placed towards the end of the LP and hears Swift name-drop the Hollywood pair's first two children, Inez and James. The lyrics led people to believe that the only other name mentioned belongs to their newborn, who they welcomed in October 2019.

While Lively made no mention to the rumors, Reynolds didn't either. On his Instagram Story, the actor recently shared a photo from the music video to the track, "cardigan," without any commentary. PEOPLE has since confirmed that "betty" is indeed "named in part" after their youngest born. Additionally, the song has been making the rounds as it has reminded Swifties of a track from Friends, where Phoebe performs a tell-all song about a love triangle between Ross, Rachel and the former's new girlfriend, Julie.

folklore is Swift's 8th studio album after her 2019 effort, Lover. The star worked on the LP with The National's Aaron Dessner, William Bowery, Bon Iver and her go-to collaborator Jack Antonoff.
