To cap off a recent flurry of news related to She's All That and Freddie Prinze, Jr., actress Rachael Leigh Cook gave birth to her second child, a son, this past Saturday. The actress waited a few days before sharing a baby announcement on Twitter:

Welcome to the party, Little Buddy. We love you so much. http://t.co/tvIBcGpnkJ

Cook and her husband, actor Daniel Gillies, who currently stars on the CW show The Originals, named their son Theodore Vigo Sullivan Gillies. Baby Theodore almost rivals the Duggar Dillard baby in weight and length, at 8 lbs., 14 ounces, and 20.5 inches. The couple also have a daughter, Charlotte Easton, who was born in 2013.

The second-time mom and dad didn't reveal their pregnancy news until late January. In a statement, the couple shared, "We're as happy as we were surprised by this wonderful news! We haven't slept since 2013 and welcome advice from all parents who survived Two Under Two."

In an interview with Wetpaint.com last year, Cook also talked about balancing work and motherhood: "I'm certainly loving my time with [Charlotte]. I don't think I'll ever completely put work aside, but that's just part of who I am. I think that loving what you do and having your child see that is a good example to set. That's the plan, and I'm sticking with it."
