It’s natural for new parents to quibble about things. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are new parents. Do you see where we’re going with this?

“We’re total rivals,” Lively told Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night. “I hear [Reynolds] all the time, ‘Da-da, da-da,’ and then I walk in the room and he’s like, ‘Ma-ma.’ And I’m like, ‘How dare you do that?’ … The word ‘Da-da’ is banned in our house.”

“She has to say ‘ma-ma’ first,” Lively elaborated. “I do everything! He does nothing!” She’s joking, we’re pretty sure: Lively told Michael Strahan that she and Reynolds are actually pretty good about sharing their parenting duties, right down to the diapers.

You can next catch Lively, 27, in The Age of Adaline, out Friday. Reynolds, 38, is currently filming Deadpool in Canada.
