McSteamy is a dad again! Grey’s Anatomy actor Eric Dane and his actress wife Rebecca Gayheart welcomed their second child into the world this week, and it is another girl!
A rep for the couple confirmed the happy news to People.
“Rebecca Gayheart and husband Eric Dane welcomed Georgia Geraldine Dane on Dec. 28, just in time for the New Year!” said the rep. “Both mom and baby girl are happy and healthy, Billie is thrilled to be a big sister and dad is getting ready to live in a house full of ladies!”
Dane and Gayheart already have one daughter, big sister Billie Beatrice. How will they cope with having two kids under the age of two?
“I’ve heard that’s very challenging. But I think I’m up for it,” Gayheart told People last August. “Eventually it’s going to be great because they’re going to be very close in age and very close, hopefully.”
It has been quite the year for 40-year-old Gayheart and her 39-year-old husband. Eric Dane checked into rehab in July to treat a growing painkiller addiction he developed while being treated for a sports injury, according to his rep. At the end of November the family barely escaped serious injury when a 30-foot tall eucalyptus tree collapsed onto their Beverly Hills home during a freak wind storm.
Thankfully this new development in their personal lives is a much happier one.
