The Originals Daniel Gillies and his wife, Rachael Leigh Cook, are expecting their second child!

Daniel Gillies, who plays Elijah Mikaelson on The Originals, and wife Rachael Leigh Cook, who plays Kate Moretti on TNT’s “Perception,” are expecting their second child!

Daniel and Rachael were married in 2004, and their first child, Charlotte Easton Gillies, was born in 2013 to the joy of their parents. After Rachael gave birth he tweeted, “it’s a girl. the tiny new empress of my everything. she’s immaculate. we’re delirious.”

The happy couple confessed this new addition to their family was a surprise as well as wonderful news. They also admitted that they could use some advice, “We haven’t slept since 2013 and welcome advice from all parents who survived Two Under Two.”

Recently Daniel gushed about his little angel that “She’s the greatest thing ever. She’s heaven!” He only gets to see her once a week when he flies home from Atlanta where The Originals films. He goes on to say, “I can’t describe what it’s like to look at her, to hold her. She’s just a happy, beautiful kid. Honestly, any guy who’s lucky enough to have a daughter is a king.”

It must be wonderful for Daniel to have the twins who play baby Hope on the set so he can get some play time in for when he goes home to Charlotte!

“Perception” on TNT starring Rachael as Kete Moretti and Eric McCormack as Dr. Daniel Pierce returns Tuesday, February17th, 2015, with their final five episodes of the series.

The Originals, starring Daniel as Elijah Mikaelson, continues their second season and has been renewed for a third season and airs on Mondays, at 8/7c, on The CW!
