With the release of Taylor Swift's "Betty," fans suspected that the singer may have dropped news of the name of close friends Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' newest daughter into the lyrics — and they would be correct.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells PEOPLE that the song was named in part for Lively and Reynolds' third daughter, born Oct. 4. Reps for the couple did not return a request for comment.
Last fall, the actor announced that he and Lively had welcomed their third daughter together, but stayed mum on her name. Sleuthing Swifties were quick to note that the track featured three names in the song — Betty, Inez and James — the latter two being the names of Reynolds and Lively's 3½ and 5-year-old daughters and leading fans to wonder if the 9-month-old's moniker had been revealed.
A few fans suspected the song had something to do with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. And though we don't know the validity of the other theories, this one turned out to be true!
The song's lyrics reference three people: James, Inez, and, of course, Betty.
James and Inez are the names of Ryan and Blake's daughters, who are 5 years old and 3 years old, respectively.
In May 2019, the couple revealed they were expecting their third child. Blake debuted her baby bump on the Detective Pikachu red carpet and quietly gave birth later that year, but has been mum on any specifics...until now.
Taylor Swift's "Betty," one plucky part of what she's affectionately coined Folklore's "Teenage Love Triangle," ends with a cliffhanger.
"If I just showed up at your party, would you have me? Would you want me? Would you tell me to go f--- myself, or lead me to the garden?" the song's protagonist, James, sings throughout the track -- but the listener isn't privy to Betty's immediate answer.
One Swift fan took the liberty to build upon Swift's fantasy scene with a TikTok comedy series from the perspective of everyone else at that fated high school party, where a teen is fumbling through an apology.
