Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart’s first child is almost here, and Eric said he’s thrilled at the prospect of welcoming a daughter.
“It just makes sense that I’m having a girl … I don’t know what it is, but I am excited it’s a girl,” Eric told People magazine at Monday night’s premiere of Valentine’s Day at Hollywood’s Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.
Asked if they have a name picked out, Rebecca replied: “We have a couple of names, but we’re going to wait and meet the baby before we name.”
Rebecca’s doctor was actually at the premiere, too – which was just a coincidence, though Eric was happy about it. “I think she’s ready to go!” he said of his wife.
Eric, 37, and Rebecca, 38, also reminisced about their previous Valentine’s Days together.
“We baked a cake on our first Valentine’s Day, remember that?” Eric said.
“We did bake a cake!” Rebecca said.
“It was a chocolate cake with a white frosting on it, right? It was lopsided and kind of messed up, and we ate the whole thing.”
And Rebecca likes to keep it simple on Valentine’s Day. “She never wanted anything but a card from me,” Eric said, “which I thought was kind of weird, because I kind of like to buy stuff … And she said, ‘No, I want a card.’ ”
