They’re all that! Rachael Leigh Cook and Daniel Gillies have had another baby.

The “She’s All That” actress and “The Originals” actor welcomed a baby boy on Saturday in Los Angeles, according to E! News.

The little guy, named Theodore Vigo Sullivan Gillies, weighed in 8 pounds and 14 ounces and measured 20.5 inches long, the site said.

Reps for both actors did not immediately respond to requests for comment.


The “Perception” actress confirmed the news on Twitter on Wednesday night, tweeting, “Welcome to the party, Little Buddy. We love you so much,” along with a link to the E! story.

Just two days later, the 35-year-old was spotted grocery shopping in West Hollywood, Us Weekly said. 

Theodore joins the couple’s firstborn daughter Charlotte, whom they welcomed in September 2013.

The couple wed in 2004 and announced that they were expecting again in January, issuing a statement saying that they were “happy” and “surprised” by the news.


“We haven’t slept since 2013 and welcome advice from all parents who survived Two Under Two,” they said.

Incidentally, Cook’s baby announcement surfaced just a day after the Wrap reported that “She’s All That” might be rebooted.

The 1999 high school comedy, which also starred Freddie Prinze Jr. and the late Paul Walker vying for Cook’s affections, is reportedly being developed by the Weinstein Co. and Miramax, with Kenny Lyon directing and Tonya Lewis Lee, wife of director Spike Lee, producing.
