Blake Lively recently exposed about her relationship with spouse Ryan Reynolds, and it turns out they’re both all about promoting woman power.
In a new interview with Glamour, Blake talked about how the #goals-worthy couple empowers each other and their two daughters, Inez and James. And the way they both start is via conscious wording.
“He’ll pick up, such as a caterpillar, and rather than stating, ‘What’s his name?’ he’ll say, ‘What’s her name?'” Blake told Glamour.
Both Blake and Ryan ensure that the vocabulary they use when speaking with their daughters and dismiss patriarchal norms and terminology to be able to change their perspectives and cause them to become feel just like the powerful and fearless females they may be – even at ages one and two.
“We’ve joked that my girl is bossy. But my hubby said, ‘I don’t ever want to use that term again. You’ve never noticed a guy called bossy.’ There could not be any negative connotation for a man being a boss, so to add a negative connotation on a woman being bossy? It’s belittling. And it doesn’t encourage them to be a boss,” she added.
Not only that, but we can already thank their two girls for inspiring amazing Twitter content – but FYI, Blake confirmed that those hilarious tweets where Ryan references “my daughter” (i.e. “My daughter gets so pumped watching Disney films. She loves that they all have singing, dancing and a part when the parents die.”) aren’t really about either of his daughters.
“Everything is a completely made-up scenario,” Blake said, “He’ll run them by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I’m so in love with him when he writes that stuff. I mean, I’m in love with him most of the time, but especially with this.”
We’d maintain love with this too, Blake. Discuss a parenting fantasy team.
