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 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."

Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
