Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds Share First Photo of Baby James: Check it Out!

by at .

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds shared the very first photo of newborn baby James on Instagram today, and boy does she have a cute hand.

Yes ... James is a girl. And no doubt one whose beauty will be as unique as her name, given the genetic lottery she hit at conception ...

The adorable picture, first shared by Reynolds, 38, included the caption: "Thumb wrestling isn't always fair. Curiously, my hand is the small one."

The ex-Gossip Girl cast member, 27, quickly re-grammed her husband's post: "... and with that, my husband @vancityreynolds joins Insta."

Promoting her new film The Age of Adaline, Lively opened up recently about her beloved husband and the realities of raising a newborn baby.

"You never know when you're gonna get crapped on or when you're gonna get a big smile or when that smile immediately turns into hysterics."

"It might be like living with a drug addict. But you have a baby and you think, 'I can't imagine ever not having a baby,' because they grow up so quickly."

"I'd be an 80-year-old woman with a baby if I could."

While they have yet to reveal their daughter's face (even Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' baby name was secret for a time), she looks like her dad.

"I think she looks a lot like her daddy," Lively noted. "I want a maternity test! ... If not, I'm not sure about this kid... She never left our sight, but ..."

As for the somewhat unusual name selection?

"It's a family name," the star said, noting that it probably would've been James either way. "I liked having a boy's name, so I thought I'd pass it on."

Fair enough ... and it sure beats some of these other celebrity baby names chosen by various famous folks over the years. My goodness ...

Blake Lively Quotes

I once heard someone say that I'm similar to Paris Hilton, since I have a dog and blonde hair, that must mean we're alike.... I don't go to clubs, I don't party, I don't dance on tables, and I don't like sex tapes.

Blake Lively

At the end of the day, I want to go to dinner and watch a movie. I don't want to go to a club and not wear panties.
