Two stars from hit shows welcomed new babies over the weekend.

First up, Heather Morris, who plays the lovably dim Brittany Pierce gave birth to her first child on Saturday.

According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” Morris and her high school sweetheart, Taylor Hubbell, welcomed a little boy named Elijah, and Taylor’s brother Adam shared proof on Instagram.

“The newest Mr. Hubbell #sayuncle,” he wrote in the caption.

That same day, “She’s All That” star Rachael Leigh Cook and husband Daniel Gillies, who coincidentally plays a vampire named Elijah on “The Vampire Diaries” and its upcoming spinoff, “The Originals,” welcomed a daughter.

While the new parents have not yet announced the child’s name yet, Gillies shared the news on Twitter, writing:


Morris is not expected back as a series regular on the upcoming season of “Glee,” but could be back as a guest star later this season.

Though Cook will have a bit of a break before returning to film season 3 of her TNT series “Perception,” Gillies will be pulling double duty between “The Originals” and Canada’s “Saving Hope,” on which he co-stars as a doctor opposite “Smallville” actress Erica Durance.
