It's a boy! Los Angeles actress Dana Andersen, who last week segued from her bare-belly stage role in "Ginger Ale Afternoon" to begin work on a film version of the play, finally took time off for a date with the stork. Andersen and husband William Schreiner became the parents of a 9-pound, 9-ounce son, Quinn Porter Schreiner. But the family won't be out of action for long. Andersen, who managed to complete all of her bathing suit shots before losing her tummy, will return to the "Ginger Ale" film set within the month. And Schreiner has just inked a deal to direct the movie version of his recent stage hit, Melanie Graham's "Just Like the Pom Pom Girls."
