The couple revealed the baby’s name on Oct. 4: Charlotte Easton Gillies, reports Us Weekly.
The pair married in 2004.
“One of the best things about gestation is that people tell you that you look great, even when it is far from true,” Rachael told Marla Sokoloff’s Celebrity Baby Blog weeks before giving birth. “I don’t turn down a compliment, so thank you!”
Rachael Leigh Cook Announces Pregnancy
Rachael announced her pregnancy in May 2013. When David first found out about their baby-to-be, he immediately decided on the baby’s name — and we hope he was kidding!
“A lot of people are asking whether I’d prefer a boy or a girl,” Daniel told Us Weekly at the time. “In truth, it doesn’t matter to me — I just can’t wait to meet little Keanu Robocop.”
Rachael worked to keep her growing baby bump hidden while filming her hit show Perception. She told Us:
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.
Coming from this talented acting family, we wouldn’t be surprised if this little gal makes it to television!
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Are you excited that Rachael had a girl?
