After tying the knot in 2004, Rachael Leigh Cook and her husband Daniel Gillies are “so excited” to be expecting a baby — but that’s because they waited.
“We got married incredibly fast,” the actress, 33, told PEOPLE from the set of her TNT crime-drama, Perception.
“We got engaged after dating for maybe five months and we got married a couple of months after that. There was just so much more both of us wanted to do. We wanted to travel and accomplish a lot more in our professional lives.”
Although many people were waiting to see her pregnant — Cook says that after announcing she was expecting, many reactions included “Finally!” — she insists she and the Vampire Diaries star, 37, have no regrets waiting almost a decade into their marriage to add a baby carriage.
