Daniel Gillies and wife Rachael Leigh Cook welcomed their little bundle of joy, Charlotte Easton Gillies, into the world just two short weeks ago, but the proud papa is already talking up the new lady in his life.

Just Jared caught up with Daniel (Elijah Mikaelson) on the set of The Originals — hopefully not while he was still staked in his personalized coffin and locked away in Davina’s secret chambers — to ask him about his new role as a daddy.

“My wife is the greatest gift I ever received,” Daniel told the site. “She came [to Atlanta] eight months pregnant, found us an apartment to live in, transported our dogs, cars — I helped with this obviously — but she brought her life down here.”

“Her mother too, who I adore, and she got her nest set up here in that last month,” Daniel continued. “She found new physicians, new OB-GYN’s, new pediatricians. Everything was going to happen in L.A. and then, it was all for me.”

Just Jared also reports that Daniel talked about dancing and singing with Charlotte every single day — just in case we don’t already love him enough.

What do you think about Daniel’s role as a new daddy? Does it make him hotter? Hit the comments and let us know!
