Are you ready to say hello to the most adorable baby on the planet, because Daniel Gillies is expecting his first child with wife Rachael Leigh Cook!
Married since 2004, the Vampire Diaries and Originals star couldn’t be more thrilled about the news. “Thank you everyone,” he tweeted, following the May 7 announcement. “We are delighted. Xx.”
Not surprisingly, everyone’s dying to know the baby’s gender, but Daniel doesn’t seem quite as concerned. In an interview with Us Weekly, the actor shared his thoughts on the matter: “A lot of people are asking whether I'd prefer a boy or a girl. In truth, it doesn't matter to me.”
Of course, it wouldn’t be Daniel Gillies without that trademark sense of humor. “I just can't wait to meet little Keanu Robocop,” he added.
Which brings us to the next question on everyone’s mind: When is the baby due?
In the world of Hollywood pregnancy news, celebrities typically wait until the 12-week mark to make their announcements. If our grade school math serves us, that would put Rachael’s due date around the beginning of November — in other words, right in the full swing of Originals Season 1!
