Dr. Kepner to the maternity room – stat!
Grey’s Anatomy star Sarah Drew is now the proud new mom of a baby boy, who arrived at 6:21 last night.
She and husband Peter Lanfer decided not to find out the gender in advance, she says, in order to help curb her control-freak ways.
“I’m about to walk into a chapter of my life where I have no control over anything anymore, and I figured I’d help ease myself into it by not allowing myself to plan for the sex of the baby. It’s good training for me!” she told People.
No odd color-based or cartoon-character names for the littlest Lanfer. Sarah and Peter went old-school in their choice. What did they name their firstborn?
Both are Old Testament names you don’t hear very often; Micah means “Who is like God?” and Emmanuel means “God is with us.”
But even if he’d been named Rutabaga, this little one would still be a blessing.
A number of Gray’s cast members have been pregnant in real life – Jessica Capshaw just announced she’s having her third baby. But don’t look for Sarah’s character to sprout a bump on the show; Dr. Kepner’s a virgin, and the writers decided against having her lose her virginity and gain a baby at the same time!
Congratulations to the delighted parents!
