Actress Rachael Leigh Cook and husband Daniel Gillies welcome their first child. Gillies announced the news on Twitter.
The two married in 2004. US Weekly reported their pregnancy in May, when Cook could no longer hide her baby bump.
When asked by People Magazine, what she was looking forward to when the baby arrived, Cook had this to say:
"I have very short-term goals in this area! I will be very impressed with myself if I can just get this kid here into the outside world safely. I don’t feel qualified to pull this whole thing off, if I’m being honest. So it’s a cliché but I have to say it, just having a healthy kid is all I want."
Before the baby arrived, Gillies had to clear the rumors via Twitter.
