- Ryan Reynolds has opened up about how much his family has been enjoying Taylor Swift’s new album.
- He told SiriusXM that his wife Blake Lively and daughters do “full dance” numbers while listening.
- “My favorite thing is when a three-year-old is just throwing down the F-bomb,” he joked.
In case you were wondering, Taylor Swift’s new album “Midnights” has gone down a treat with Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s children — although its explicit lyrics have caused a bit of an issue.
Appearing on “The Jess Cagle Show” on SiriusXM, Reynolds opened up about how much his wife and three daughters have been enjoying Swift’s 10th studio album, which was released in October.
“That’s like a religion in our house,” he said. “In fact, I’m not making this up. We are having a Taylor Swift ‘Midnights’ dance party right after this.”
“It’s Sunday. We’re headed straight to the porch where we’re doing a full dance number set to ‘Midnights.'” he continued, adding with a laugh: “Swear words included.”
The actor then explained that because ‘Midnights’ is Swift’s most explicit album to date, his youngest daughter, who is just 3 years old, has inadvertently been “throwing down the F-bomb” while singing along to such songs as “Lavender Haze,” “Snow on the Beach,” “Karma,” and, of course, “Vigilante Shit.”
“My favorite thing is when a three-year-old is just throwing down the F-bomb in a song and has no idea,” he said.
Reynolds went on to explain that it was only recently that his daughters learned that Swift is a world-famous musician and not, as they previously thought, a cool aunt.
“I think what’s most exciting for them is that for the longest time they just thought Taylor’s just a, you know, like an aunt, like a friend of mommy and daddy that’s very, very close, almost family. And then they went to a concert one day and were like, ‘Oh… Oh, this isn’t a hobby.'”
The “Free Guy” actor, 46, and Lively, 35 — who is now pregnant with the couple’s fourth child — share three daughters: James, 7, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3. If those names seem familiar to you, it’s because Swift namechecked all three in the song “Betty” on her 2020 album “Folklore.”
That’s how deep the family’s friendship with the record-setting — and breaking — pop star goes.
Speaking on the same show in 2021, Reynolds said it was an “honor” to have his children’s names immortalized in the country-inspired love ballad.
“The names are the names of our kids but, you know, we trust her implicitly and she’s very sensitive to any of that stuff,” he said when asked how he felt about it.
“And obviously the song has nothing to do with our kids other than our kids’ names. But, I mean, what an honor. I don’t know. We thought it was pretty damn amazing. We still do.”
