Ryan Reynolds jokes about baby names

RYAN Reynolds wants to name his baby Bruce Jenner.

The 'Green Lantern' actor and wife Blake Lively are expecting their first child together and the 37-year-old hunk joked he is going to name the youngster after the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star as he doesn't want it to have a "pretentious" moniker.

He told Canadian talk show 'etalk': "On the plane over here I was trying to think of baby names. I don't want a name that's anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y."

He jokingly added: "So I'm going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds ... that's if it's a girl.

"[If it's a boy?] Bruce Jenner."

Ryan's 27-year-old spouse recently gushed about how well he has been taking care of her during her pregnancy.

She said: "He's always been good to me. You want to be able to complain about your husband and be that person, but he takes pretty good care of me."

Blake hasn't ditched her healthy diet since discovering she is pregnant but has stocked up on "stretchier" clothes to fit over her blossoming baby bump.

She explained: "I'm gonna amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier. Because that's all that fits!"

The 'Savages' star admitted earlier this year that she and Ryan want a "litter of kids."
