Wow! I don’t remember hearing that she was pregnant. I love these two. Their daughter is adorable. I’m sure their son will be no different. Congrats to the fam.

Congrats to them!!!

I love this couple! I never heard any offical announcement about Salli expecting again, but I’m a big Eureka fan and towards the end of last season (or midseason break) I thought I spotted a baby bump, which is why I figured her character became pregnant on the show!

Congrats to them! I met him years ago when he was on “All My Children” and he was such a sweetheart.

LOVE this couple. Remember when he was “Robert”, Vanessa’s boyfriend, on The Cosby Show?

Love them both. I had a crush on Dondre when he was on The Cosby Show. They make a beautiful couple.

Whoa, I don’t remember the announcement for this baby either. But, congratulations to them on their son. I like how they named him after Dondre, but still gave him his own identity.

Yeah, uh I didn’t even know she was pregnant! Congrats!

Does anyone know how Dre is pronunced? Does it rhyme with gray/grey, or is it pronunced like “Dree” (rhyming with “Free”)?
