We’re still all giddy from the news Vampire Diaries star Daniel Gillies (Elijah) and wife Rachael Leigh Cook are expecting their first baby. The Perception actress, who tied the knot with Daniel in 2004, is due in the fall.
Of course, we’re not the only ones who are totally psyched about Daniel and Rachael’s baby news.
Vampire Diaries creator Julie Plec congratulated the happy couple via Twitter on May 7, writing, “@danieljgillies @RachaelLCook oh my god!!!! Congrats you two. I always love when there's hard evidence that married people still have sex.”
Without missing a beat, Rachael replied, “@julieplec @danieljgillies Ahahaa thanks Julie! Yup, keepin the dream alive over here.”
Daniel’s The Originals co-star Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley) also shared some celebratory words, albeit laced with a bit of morose self-reflection.
“So I guess Everyone is getting engaged or pregnant. #congrats !!! ........but also #FML,” Phoebe tweeted.
Hang in there, Phoebe! Model/actresses never stay lonely for long.
Papa Gillies himself took a moment to thank everyone for their well wishes, tweeting, “Thank you everyone. we are delighted. Xx.”
Hopefully playing an uncle on The Originals to Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Hayley’s bundle of joy will prepare Daniel well for taking care of little Keanu Robocop when he/she arrives.
