Blake Lively: Baby James Looks Just Like Ryan Reynolds

04/21/2015 at 08:00 PM ET

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds‘s daughter is a genetic lottery winner no matter which parent she takes after.

But according to her mom, the 4-month-old already looks just like famous father.

While there’s no photographic evidence yet, the Age of Adaline star, 27, went on Live! With Kelly and Michael on Tuesday, and told the hosts that baby James “looks like her daddy,” joking that she “wants a maternity test.”

This confirms reports from Lively’s Age of Adaline director, Lee Toland Krieger, who recently told reporters, “I haven’t met baby James, [but] I saw a picture — not surprisingly, the picture I saw was disturbing in how beautiful she was.”

The actress also told Strahan and Ripa about how her life has changed since giving birth in December.

“Well this, first of all, has changed,” she said while gesturing to her chest.

The baby safety paranoia is also starting to set in: “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. We’re crying all the time for no reason.”

And she’s not getting much rest either. “I slept two hours last night,” Lively shared.

As for diaper duty, Lively and Reynolds share changing duties, and joked that her husband now “smells like poop.”

Lively also talked about her own childhood, telling the hosts about her favorite moments with her mom — who was watching the show backstage.

“She would always take me out of school and take me to Disneyland, which is really ill advised,” the actress said laughing. “I know! It was terrible! She was like, ‘It’s a landscaping lesson.’ ”

She continued, “But it was really neat because to see people’s imaginations like that, it did open your mind. I don’t know. I’m trying to justify going to Disneyland!”

I said the same thing when my daughter was born. She looked just like her dad from the moment she popped out. Everyone commented on it, so I said it was obvious she didn’t belong to the milkman, but the mother’s identity was in question.😉 She is grown now, still looks like her father, but is a beautiful, feminine version. I hope the same for baby James.

I don’t know why but she sounds so stupid,like really demolish a balcony, come on. I use to like her before having a baby,and now she’s very annoying, she wouldn’t know she’s the first person to have a child and to not let anyone know about the babies name as if it matters to us all.

lilly- Give her a break! She’s a first-time mom, so it’s perfectly natural for her to be somewhat paranoid about certain things. Also, she admitted that she only had about two hours of sleep the night before. That can certainly make a person say silly things!🙂

Also, what’s wrong with keeping your baby’s name private for awhile? Maybe they wanted all their friends and family to hear it first!
