Congratulations to Rachael Leigh Cook and her husband Daniel Gillies who are expecting their first child! Cook plays special agent Kate Moretti in TNT’s Perception and Gillies stars as Elijah Mikaelson in The Vampire Diaries.
The 33-year-old actress told US Weekly, “I’ve been hiding my rapidly growing bump while shooting but this kiddo is vying for screen time. We clearly have a future actor on our hands.”
Gillies added, “A lot of people are asking whether I’d prefer a boy or a girl. In truth, it doesn’t matter to me — I just can’t wait to meet little Keanu Robocop.”
The couple – who married in 2004 – also appear together in the upcoming Showtime’s Broken Kingdom. The dad-to-be will also be reprising his role in the Vampire Diaries’ spinoff The Originals.
He told the Los Angeles Times, “Every part of that sounds amazing. So I was thrilled by that idea and I’ve said it a multitude of times. I mean there is a whole world out there and these guys seem globally threatening. Especially this family.”
Their baby is due this fall.
