In case you didn’t know, it is Blake and Ryan’s then-2-year-old daughter James who can be heard at the start of Taylor’s 2017 song “Gorgeous.”

Then, in 2020, notoriously private Blake and Ryan let Taylor be the one to reveal their third daughter’s name to the world via her Folklore album.

In February 2023, Blake and Ryan announced that they had welcomed their fourth child together — but they are yet to share the baby’s gender or name.

So, pretty understandably, when Taylor released her first album since the baby’s arrival, The Tortured Poets Department, last month, many wondered if the baby’s name was hidden somewhere in the 31 tracks.

However, in a recent appearance on the Today show, Ryan confirmed that his and Blake’s fourth child’s name is not mentioned in any of the songs.
