To say Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are protective parents would be a bit of an understatement. Unlike Coco Rocha who started an Instagram account for her daughter even before she was born, Blake and Ryan didn’t just keep their newborn away from the camera, they wouldn’t even share her name. It wasn’t until nearly four months after their daughter’s birth that Ryan finally admitted her name was James.

Since the baby news that initiated a plethora of praise hands emojis to be sent to Blake fans everywhere, we haven’t heard much about how James is getting on in this great big world. However, it seems as though Ryan felt today was a great day to treat us all to a closer look at the undoubtedly beautiful baby.

Ryan only made his Instagram debut three days ago, but he’s definitely starting his snap game off strong. Earlier today he shared a photo of James’ itty bitty hand gripping onto his thumb. Ryan played up his trademark sarcastic wit, captioning the photo, “Thumb wrestling isn’t always fair. Curiously, my hand is the small one.”
