Eric Dane & Rebecca Gayheart welcome a daughter


According to reports, Eric Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart welcomed a baby girl at some point yesterday. The report is still unconfirmed, but I think it’s probably true. Judging by recent pictures I saw of Rebecca, she seemed ready to pop at any moment, and she and Eric had already announced they were having a girl. The girl’s name is unknown.

Eric Dane put on a pair of doctor scrubs — and no, it wasn’t for his role as McSteamy on the set of Grey’s Anatomy. His wife Rebecca Gayheart gave birth to a baby girl, Hollyscoop reports.

This was the couple’s first child together.

According to Hollyscoop, Rebecca checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. and gave birth this afternoon with her loving husband at her side.

Eric’s beautiful wife has been seen out and about town L.A. looking like she was ready to pop.

After their little bundle of joy was born, Eric called close friends and family members to give them the good news, Hollyscoop reports.

“They’re both over the moon about it,” a source close to the couple told Hollyscoop.

“It just makes sense that I’m having a girl… I don’t know what it is, but I am excited it’s a girl,” Eric said in a recent interview before his daughter was born.”

Congratulations to the happy family if this is true. I’ve read interviews where both Rebecca and Eric have stated they were trying for a baby for a while, so it’s nice that it finally happened for them. They confirmed the pregnancy last September, just a short time after their naked-hangout/kind-of sex tape with a hooker went online, and after wide speculation about Rebecca’s alleged drug problems. I hope that Rebecca remained sober and clean throughout her pregnancy, and will continue to be clean and sober for her child. Even though it seem like Rebecca was still smoking cigarettes through her pregnancy – well, at least it wasn’t crack, you know?

    Aren’t they really good friends with Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller? I think I remember reading that it was actually them that set up Sheen and Mueller. The drug and threesome stories take on a sort of different light if that is true.

  2. mollyb says:

    Ugh. These two still make me sick. I also tried for a long time before becoming pregnant and the last thing I would have dreamt of doing was endangering the growth and development of my long-awaited baby by smoking while pregnant. Puke.

  3. Lil says:

    Hummm interesting, they out those two together…

    Afffff these two r gross

  4. Lway says:

    Congrats on your baby’s birth.

    I still think the two of them are a little “weird”

  5. Stella says:

    … well just as long as the baby is healthy *kanye shrug

  6. Dr. Drew says:

    Here’s hoping the little one doesn’t grow up to be like Kari Ann Peniche.

  7. Gemma says:

    @Shannon,yeah they are friends with the Sheens, birds of a feather …
    Hopefully they’ve both cleaned their act now that they’ve brought a baby into the world.

  8. Popcorny says:

    Awww … now it’s 3 of them, just like always.

  9. Bodhi says:

    Well, congrats to them. I think they are exceptionally strange, too

  10. TG says:

    I always thought she was adorable, even her association with Brook didn’t ring alarm bells, but when the hot tub video came out and I learned that she had killed a boy crossing a road because she was impatient and drove around other cars who were stopped it finally hit me that she is a dark soulless person. And her husband no longer has a hot bone in his body after that video came out.

  11. djork says:

    Hope she doesn’t drive over it.

  12. happymom says:

    OMG-Popcorny-I just spit out my water laughing at your comment.

  13. Katyusha says:

    Rebecca looks gorgeous in these pictures!

  14. K says:

    @djork: Agreed.

  15. Patrice says:

    How wonderful for Eric and Rebecca! Even though I don’t know them, I am thrilled to hear this happy news : ) No doubt their little one is a doll. Congrats!

  16. Patrice says:

    Mollyb: How on EARTH did you come to the conclusion that Rebecca was “smoking” anything while pregnant?! What a dangerous rumor to start! The video in question was confirmed to have been filmed a few years ago. Geez.

  17. hateher says:

    She killed a child. She should be in jail. Period.

  18. mollyb says:

    Patrice–there were pictures of her smoking with a noticeable pregnancy bump all over the web–including this site.

  19. TG says:

    yes popcorny and djork get the best laughs of the day. I wish I was that good.

  20. kimberly says:

    they just seem like crackheads with nice clothes ya know?

  21. j. ferber says:

    How are they any different from Speidi having a baby for publicity? It seems they’re doing it for good PR. Quick, our names have been dragged through the mud: let’s have a baby. Depressing.

  22. Rosalee says:

    Can’t let her live down a tragic and terrible accident. Nope have to drag that out..anyone question Matthew Brodrick’s ability to parent? or maybe you should wonder if Brandy deserves to have her child..

  23. Belle Epoch says:

    Tragic and terrible accident? She drove AROUND a car that had stopped to let a little boy cross the street. I guess she is such a busy and important person that she had to PASS the other car and RUN OVER an innocent child. I’d love to know where she was going that was worth killing a child for.

    Now she will learn what she really did to those parents.

  24. Rosalee says:

    So when is her time up? Are you the judge? What happened was terrible, a combination of bad judgement on a number of individuals, the court transcripts are clear on the matter.

  25. Ana says:

    I thought she was drunk when she killed the child? I guess I must have mis-read it.

    I still don’t understand why he is with her and not me!!!

  26. CB Rawks says:

    I believe her husband also admitted she was still smoking while pregnant, in an interview.
    If she was, then I hate her selfish guts, and she does not deserve to be a mother.

  27. MooCow says:

    When did he turn 60? You know they’re still gonna be a seedy swinging old married couple in 30 years D:

  28. Cercei says:

    Lovely couple 🙂

    Anything that keeps her off the road.
