Congratulations to The Last Exorcism star Patrick Fabian and wife, comedienne and writer Mandy Steckelberg! The happy couple welcomed daughter Abbey Ray at their Los Angeles home on Wednesday (September 15), People reports.
According to the new dad, baby Abbey “is already batting her eyelashes.” The 45-year-old proud papa went on to say, “Being a father for the first time is fantastic. My love and admiration for what women can do has gone up 1,000 percent.”
Patrick first broke their pregnancy news with Celebrity Baby Scoop last month and revealed their name choice: “We’re naming her after Abbey Road. We are big Beatles fans.” Huge fans indeed: “Abbey’s first concert was in utero at the Hollywood Bowl with none other than Paul McCartney,” Patrick shared.
And where does Ray come in? “Ray is after Mandy’s grandfather who ran a western wear and saddlery in South Dakota,” Patrick explained.
