Ryan Reynolds is a dedicated Swiftie.

In an interview with Variety published on Wednesday, July 10, the 47-year-old actor shared his favourite Taylor Swift song.

While promoting their upcoming film Deadpool & Wolverine, Reynolds, his co-star Hugh Jackman, and director Shawn Levy participated in a fun quiz to test their knowledge of each other. The outlet asked Jackman and Levy, both 55, to identify Reynolds' favourite Taylor Swift song.

However, both guessed wrong. Jackman confidently picked "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" from the 2012 Red album, while Levy chose "Gorgeous" from 2017's "Reputation”.

"He sang it to me on the very last day of the shoot," Jackman said of his guess, "Word for word." When the Wolverine actor continued to protest, Reynolds insisted, "I hummed it."

The Deadpool star then disclosed that his favourite song is “Betty,” which subtly unveiled the name of his third daughter with wife Blake Lively. The song also references the couple's other daughters, James, 9, and Inez, 7.

"In my Folkmore and Evermore era,” he said of his pick. 

Swift confirmed that the characters in "Betty" were named after the couple's children when she introduced the song on the radio. "I named all the characters in this story after my friends' kids... and I hope you like it!" she explained while discussing the song's meaning.

Soon after the song's release, a source informed PEOPLE that "Betty" was partly named after Lively and Reynolds' third daughter, whose name had not been publicly disclosed yet.

Deadpool & Wolverine will be in theatres on July 26.
