When asked if he wanted a daughter or a son, Gillies said to Us Weekly, "A lot of people are asking whether I'd prefer a boy or a girl. In truth, it doesn't matter to me -- I just can't wait to meet little Keanu Robocop."

Cook was falsely rumored giving birth on Friday, but her actor hubby quickly clarified the false news on Twitter. "Beautiful people: baby has not arrived. yet. please disregard the gossip+misinformation. we'll keep you posted. Xx love d+r+?" he wrote back then.
