Blake Lively: Ryan smells of poop

Blake Lively has explained why she named her daughter James.

The former Gossip Girl actress gave birth to the couple’s first child, daughter James, in January. Both stars are juggling their movie careers with parenting duties and during an appearance on Live! With Kelly and Michael on Tuesday, the 27-year-old poked fun at her spouse.

“Now he just smells like poop!" she laughed after host Michael Strahan said Ryan had smelled of baby powder when he was last on the show. "He's in full diaper duty. He's just covered in it."

Becoming a mom has also changed Blake’s perception of the world. She admitted that she is always looking for safety hazards to the point where she’s driving herself mad.

“Everything is different. You see a balcony and you're like, 'Oh, my God! The hotel needs to demolish this balcony because my child can't go anywhere near it.' Everything is just so much more heightened," she explained. "We're crying all the time for no reason."

Blake managed to look stunning during her appearance despite revealing that she had only had two hours sleep the night before. While doing the rounds to promote new movie Age of Adeline, the beauty also stopped by Good Morning America. And while she was there, she opened up about why she chose a name normally associated with boys for her little girl.

“It's a family name, and I liked having a boy's name,” she explained.

And when asked what her one piece of advice to James would be in the future, Blake knew exactly what she would say.

“Don't let anyone tell you no,” she said.
