Blake Lively might officially be the cutest mother ever (sorry, Mom). Even though she kept her baby’s name from us for WAY too long and Ryan Reynolds had to come out and reveal it himself, because, honestly, it was just getting annoying, she apparently has no problem sharing all of the other adorable things in her baby’s life. Like this, for instance: she named Amber TamblynAmerica Ferrera, and Alexis Bledel, aka The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, as her baby’s godmothers. Noticeably absent from this list: The Pants, because it wouldn’t be a huge life event if those damn pants didn’t get the short end of the stick.

Amber confirmed the honor to Nick Lachey (who’s apparently still out there in the world doing things?? RIP, 98 Degrees) on VH1’s Morning Buzz. Ever the investigative journalist, he asked,

“You’re still very close with your…costars and the three of you are godmothers to Blake Lively’s baby — is that a fact?”

She responded with a simple, “yes,” and I’m practically squealing right now. There’s just something so adorable about celebrities staying close with the people they met in their first big role in Hollywood. I mean, Sisterhood practically made all of their careers (except for Alexis, of course, who was on Gilmore Girls). From there, Blake moved on to Gossip GirlAmerica to Ugly Bettyand Amber to various other roles including House and Two and a Half Men. It was an especially big role for Blake, considering it was only her second as an actress.

That said, I would be remiss if I were to leave out one very important point. Those sacred pants brought the whole #sisterhood together, and it seems really unfair that they should leave him (her? it? them??) out of all of their big life moments. I mean, who knows where they’d all be if those pants didn’t magically fit all of them (which, BTW, is actually impossible unless they’re maternity pants or pajama jeans or something)? Maybe Blake would have actually ended up being Gossip Girl, and maybe America would have been pretty Betty. They should have at least sent the pants an invitation to the baby shower, or maybe a basket of cookies.

Celebrities these days. They just forget all about the little people denim.
