Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively kept everyone guessing for a whole year.

The couple welcomed daughter James around the 2014 holidays, but never shared her actual birthdate — until Wednesday, exactly one year later.

So, happy birthday baby James!

Reynolds, 39, took to Twitter to celebrate his daughter turning 1; finally revealing that she was born on Dec. 16 of last year.

“Happy birthday to my baby girl!” he tweeted. “Sad I lost my virginity. But thankful I have a daughter.”

Although the couple has played coy about sharing their bundle of joy with the world, Reynolds isn’t shy when it comes to talking about her. In an October interview with GQ, the Deadpool star opened up about his new role as dad.

“I have no problem waking up five times in the middle of the night and changing diapers, and as exhausted as you get, I have this stupid grin on my face all the time,” Reynolds said.

When he comes to his and Lively’s decision not to share too much of James with the public, the actor admitted he realizes it can be annoying. However, behind closed doors he has no problem raving about his daughter.

“I find it to be really obnoxious,” he said. “In fact, every time I talk about my kid in public, I’m generally talking about how average she is. But at home, I’m like ‘You’re a genius! Oh, my God! You just took a s— in your diaper that came out as a perfect musical note!”
