The big day is fast approaching for first time parents Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart!
The Grey’s Anatomy star is getting ready for some very busy days ahead, telling USA Today that he has no plans to take time off from the hit ABC show following the baby’s arrival.
“Daddy’s got to work! The baby needs shoes,” jokes the 37-year-old actor, who is also headed to the big screen in the star-studded Valentine’s Day and the musical Burlesque.
Despite his hectic schedule, Eric assures fans he won’t be leaving Grey’s any time soon, saying, “I’ve told (creator) Shonda (Rhimes), ‘I will stay here as long as you’ll have me.’ I owe these guys my career.”
Eric is getting a sneak peak at fatherhood thanks to his day job, with his character Mark “McSteamy” Sloan recently discovering he has a teenage daughter.
“It’s literally life-imitating,” he admits. “I’m reading baby books now.”
