It’s baby number four for Guiding Light‘s Daniel Cosgrove and his wife Marie. The couple welcomed their first son, Finnian Jack Cosgrove, on Wednesday, March 4th. He joins big sisters Lily, 8, Esme Rose, 6 and Ruby Willow, 3 ½.

Daniel, 38, joined the daytime serial in the role of Bill Lewis in 2002, but left the show in 2005 when his contract expired. He returned to GL in 2007. Finnian will not be the only baby on the Guiding Light set, as Daniel’s co-star Jessica Leccia is currently expecting her first child — due in June — and Bradley Cole welcomed daughter Maya Joan in February.

Congrats to him and his wife… I must confess when I first saw the pic of him, I thought it was Chris O’Donnell.

Atlanta Private Investigator on

Congratulations!! Finnian – a great Irish name!

Sara on

love him on guiding light!
and for some reason i like it when stars have bigger families and are happy and successful🙂

Elena on

Finnian is what Julia Roberts should have named her boy if she wanted a full name for Finn, instead of Phinneaeaus😉

Chelsea on

Aww, that’s great! I like the name.

Elena, I like the name Phineas and I looove that Julia named her son that. Not sure if Julia got her inspiration from it, but I heard it first in the novel “A Separate Peace” and have loved it ever since.

Chelsea on

LOL, well wow, I’m an idiot. I didn’t even see the whole story below this one about Julia’s reasons for her kids’ names!

““[With Phinnaeus], my husband wanted to name him Finn, which I quite liked, but it seemed like a nickname…So I said we had to have a proper name, and then we can call him Finn.””

I still love the name Phinnaeus, though!

Mia on

Is it bad that I only think of him as the “duche bag” in Van Wilder? Anyway…..CONGRATS on the new addition to the family!!🙂

Loved him on BH 90210…

Amazing! As someone who is bisexual myself, I find Daniel to be a wonderful role model. We need more guys like him to prove that you can be bisexual, comfortable about your sexuality and a good father.

Marley on

Congrats to Daniel Cosgrove and his beautiful family.

FYI, Daniel is not bisexual if that is what was implied in the previous comment.
