It looks like James is a daddy’s girl – she’s already wrapped around Ryan Reynolds‘ finger!

The proud new dad took to Instagram on Thursday to share the first photo of his daughter with Blake Lively, whom the couple welcomed in December.

“Thumb wrestling isn’t always fair. Curiously, my hand is the small one,” he joked of the sweet snapshot, which features the actor’s baby girl gripping his hand.

The protective parents have been slow to release personal details surrounding their daughter, with Reynolds, 38, only recently confirming her first name.

“I didn’t want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media,” he said during a March interview with Today.

“Because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls and little teenage girls sometimes scan through the archives and go, ‘Why did you do that?’ ”
