Don’t even think about asking to hold Eric Dane’s daughter, Billie, if you haven’t washed your hands and slathered on the hand sanitizer!
Eric Dane, who’s best-known as the sexy surgeon Dr. Mark “McSteamy” Sloan on Grey’s Anatomy, likes to keep things just as sterile as an operating room at home, because he’s turned into a bit of a germaphobe since the birth of his 6-month-old baby girl. “I thought I was going to be a let-them-get-dirty kind of dad,” he says. But it turns out he surprised himself after he and his wife of five years, Rebecca Gayheart, 39, brought home their little bundle-of-joy, Billie Beatrice.
The first-time parents are so protective of their little princess; they make sure that visitors get all cleaned up before they can play with the adorable little girl. “The second you come into my house I show you the sink, the hand sanitizer, then I follow you around with baby wipes. Because you don’t want the kids to get sick, right?” says Eric, 37. Sounds like Eric’s new nickname should be Mr. Clean!
