daniel gillies rachael leigh cook baby charlotte easton gillies gi 'The Originals' Daniel Gillies and Rachael Leigh Cook name baby

Actors Daniel Gillies and Rachael Leigh Cook have announced the name chosen for their new baby girl: Charlotte Easton Gillies (as reported by Us Weekly).

Born on Saturday (Sept. 28) at 9:02 a.m., the daughter of actors appearing in “The Originals,” “The Vampire Diaries” and “Saving Hope” (Gillies) and “Perception” (Cook) weighed a healthy 6 pounds and 15 ounces. Little Charlotte’s father announced her birth the next day via Twitter:

“it’s a girl. the tiny new empress of my everything. she’s immaculate. we’re delirious.”

Many fans of the actors thought that their baby had entered the world a little ahead of schedule, thanks to reports of the birth circulating in the days prior to Saturday. Whatever their source, the rumors turned out to be false. Gillies confirmed this on what would eventually be his daughter’s birthday: 

“beautiful people: baby has not arrived. yet. please disregard the gossip+misinformation. we’ll keep you posted. Xx love d+r+?”

Unlike many celebrity babies, at least the child of Gillies and Cook can be happy with a normal name. That seemed to be in question for awhile, since Gillies had previously joked to the press that his offspring would bear the name “Keanu Robocop.”

Charlotte is better.
