James Reynolds was born in the United States on December 16, 2014. Her father is Ryan Reynolds and her mother is Blake Lively. She is half-American and half-Canadian. Her father started his career as a teen star in a Canadian T.V. series. Ryan’s acting debut was in the Canadian soap “Hillside.” He starred in movies such as “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” “Ordinary Magic,” “In Cold Blood,” “Two Guys,” and “A Girl and a Pizza Place.” While Ryan has mostly landed comedic roles, he has also appeared in action movies such as “Blade: Trinity,” “X-Men Origins,” “Wolverine,” and “Green Lantern.” He received critical acclaim for the 2016 movie “Deadpool,” which broke box-office records allowing him to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame that same year.

Her mother was born into a family where everyone worked in the entertainment industry. Her acting debut was in the 1998 film “Sandman” directed by her father. Blake’s first major role was in the 2005 film “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” earning her a nomination for a Teen Choice Award. She appeared in the teen drama T.V. series “Gossip Girl,” the romantic comedy anthology film “New York, I Love You,” “Green Lantern” (where Ryan was a co-star), and the romantic fantasy film “The Age of Adaline.” Blake has appeared on “Time” magazine’s list of ‘100 Influential People.’ She was one of “People” magazine’s ‘Most Beautiful at Every Age.’

Ryan and Blake met in early 2010 while filming “Green Lantern.” They started dating the following year and were married on September 9, 2012, at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
