Math Doesn’t Suck
The new mom already has something wonderful to celebrate this year, but we’re sure 2011 will bring even more baby joy!
Danica McKellar is best known for playing Winne Cooper on The Wonder Years, but she is more than just an actress, she’s an author and mathematician! She wrote two New York Times best sellers, Math Doesn’t Suck, and Kiss My Math, which encourage middle-school girls to have confidence and succeed in mathematics! How awesome! She married composer Mike Verta in March 2009 and they welcomed their first child, Draco, on Sept. 7, 2010!
The actress and mathematics genius treated her 36-hour labor as if it was just another theorem to work out!
Danica McKellar is truly a renaissance woman. Actress, scholar, author and, now, mom, the 35-year-old gave birth to her son, Draco Verta (composer Mike Verta, 38, is Danica’s husband) just under three months ago. But thanks to her second career as a math whiz, an otherwise interminable labor became a challenge. Kind of like, in fact, a really complicated math problem!
The former Wonder Years star and best-selling mathematician had a son on Tuesday in Los Angeles.
Way to go, Winnie Cooper! Danica McKellar, formerly one of the child stars of the hit show The Wonder Years, gave birth Tuesday (Sept. 7) to her first child, a 7 lbs., 2 oz. boy named Draco. The 35-year-old actress and mathematician (she has written three best-selling books about the subject, including Math Doesn’t Suck and HOT X: Algebra Exposed) and her composer husband, Mike Verta, 38, released a statement that said, “We are humbled, overjoyed and so grateful for this miraculous gift. It’s like we’ve only now just learned the true meaning of love.” Awww!
