Congratulations are in order for Rachael Leigh Cook and Daniel Gillies.
The Perception actress, 33, and her writer-director husband have welcomed their first child – a daughter – the proud dad announced via Twitter on Sunday, September 29. “It’s a girl. The tiny new empress of my everything,” Gillies gushed. “She’s immaculate. We’re delirious.”
No further information has been released at this time.
The couple – wed since 2004 – have talked about why they waited to start a family.
“We got married incredibly fast,” Cook shared. “We got engaged after dating for maybe five months and we got married a couple of months after that. There was just so much more both of us wanted to do. We wanted to travel and accomplish a lot more in our professional lives.”
The actress continued: “We’re both people who like kids, but we weren’t jumping up and down, like, ‘Oh my God, let’s start that chapter of our lives. We weren’t those kind of people. Now that we know what our lives are going to look like — sort of — for the next couple of months, we just felt like it was the right time finally. We’re not getting any younger.”
