UPDATE: Um, hold on to those congrats! Last night, Gossip Cop put the party on pause, saying they had exclusively learned that Rachel hadn't had the baby yet. Very early on September 28, Daniel himself tweeted, "beautiful people: baby has not arrived. yet. please disregard the gossip+misinformation. we'll keep you posted. Xx love d+r+?" Silly rumors!
Are you ready to meet the most adorable baby on the planet? Good, because Daniel Gillies and his wife, Rachael Leigh Cook, have just welcomed a baby boy!
Married since 2004, the couple announced they were expecting their first child back in May. Not surprisingly, fans of The Vampire Diaries and Originals star were dying to know the baby’s gender, yet Daniel wasn’t so concerned. “A lot of people are asking whether I'd prefer a boy or a girl. In truth, it doesn't matter to me,” he revealed to Us Weekly.
Just two weeks ago, Rachael chatted with Marla Sokoloff for People’s Celebrity Baby Blog. The actress opened up about her pregnancy and her feelings towards hottie hubby Daniel. “[Pregnancy] has made me totally obsessed with my husband,” she revealed. “I know (from reading too much online) that he’s supposed to be getting on my nerves because of the hormones, but I have never loved him more. That’s the BEST.”
At this point, we’re still waiting to find out what they chosen to name the little guy, but we couldn’t be more thrilled that Rachael gave birth to a boy. If you ask us, the world needs as many mini-Daniels as it can get!
