Daniel Gillies Makes Us Swoon in Bello Magazine, Talks Baby Daughter Charlotte (PHOTOS)

There’s no denying that Daniel Gillies has had a whirlwind of a year. Not only did the 38-year-old actor transition from a supporting role on The Vampire Diaries to starring in The Originals, but the sexy actor also welcomed his first child with wife Rachael Leigh Cook.

The insanity of being on a cult series paired with the chaos of being a new parent certainly makes for a difficult challenge — yet Daniel is loving every minute of it. Even in the midst of his hectic work schedule, the actor makes family a priority. In fact, he does so now more than he ever has before.

“[Being a father] does give me a new outlook on life and work,” he reveals to Bello magazine. “It makes me realize how unimportant I am, and I mean that positively. It makes you want to double down your efforts. My daughter’s arrival into the world steered me back into what makes you happiest.”

Pardon us as we swoon.
