From North to Blanket, celebrities have produced some of the craziest baby names we’ve ever heard.


But one person who won’t be going down that route is father-to-be Ryan Reynolds.


The actor reportedly told People that he and wife Blake Lively will be keeping it simple and traditional when it comes to naming their first child.


“I don’t want a name that’s anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y,” he said, jokingly adding, “So I’m going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds…that’s if it’s a girl.”


Meanwhile, it seems that Blake has fallen prey to the dreaded pregnancy cravings – and we’re not sure we can relate to all of them!


A source told Heat magazine that it’s pumpkin ice cream and pickles that the Gossip Girl star is craving, and that Ryan is on-hand 24/7 to make sure she’s satisfied.



The source said: “She sends Ryan out in the middle of the night for organic hand-churched pumpkin-flavoured ice cream and small-batch pickles.”


That sounds like an odd combination!


After seeing Blake’s beautiful baby shower photos – not to mention her stunning appearance on the red carpet last week – we think we might be considering trying out a little pumpkin ice cream ourselves!
