Rachael Leigh Cook and her husband Daniel Gillies are expecting their second child together. Rachael and Daniel tell E! News, ?We?re as happy as we were surprised by this wonderful news! We haven?t slept since 2013 and welcome advice from all parents who survived Two Under Two.?
The couple?s new bundle of joy will join big sister Charlotte Easton Gillies, who was born in September 2013. At that time, Daniel was the one who announced Charlotte?s arrival on Twitter. ?It?s a girl,? the star of ?The Vampire Diaries? tweeted, ?The tiny new empress of my everything. She?s immaculate. We?re delirious.?
Back in March, Daniel gushed over his first daughter, ?She?s the greatest thing ever. I don?t know what to say. I get to see her about one day a week because of the show. I fly home every single weekend to see her, and she?s heaven. I can?t describe what it?s like to look at her, to hold her. She?s just a happy, beautiful kid. Honestly, any guy who?s lucky enough to have a daughter is a king.?
Rachael and Daniel tied the knot in 2004 after less than a year of dating. Rachael currently stars on TNT?s ?Perception?. The new episode of the series will air in February. Daniel, meanwhile, stars on The CW?s ?The Originals?, a spin-off of ?The Vampire Diaries?.
