And the baby boom on the Grey’s Anatomy set continues! It all began back in 2009 when star Chyler Leigh welcomed daughter Anniston in May. Since then, four more babies have been added by Ellen Pompeo, Katherine Heigl (during her Grey’s stint), Eric Dane and Jessica Capshaw. Now Sarah Drew is adding to the baby boom! A rep for the actress confirmed that she and husband Peter Lanfer are expecting their first in January. No word yet on whether they’ll be welcoming a son or a daughter.
First, there was Noah.
Then, there was Taelyn.
Earlier this year, Chyler Leigh — who plays Dr. Lexie Grey on the popular ABC show — and husband Nathan West welcomed the third addition to their brood: daughter Anniston Kae, who was weighed in on May 7th at 7 pounds, 1 ounce.
They’ve had a few years to get adjusted to parenthood — Noah is 5 1/2, and Taelyn is 2 1/2 — and Leigh says things have gotten easier, in a sense, as the couple has expanded their family. “…once you get used to multiples you figure out how to put things together quicker,” she told PEOPLE in a recent interview.
While some celebs keep mum about their chosen names, others are more than happy to spill the beans. One such celeb is Chyler Leigh, best known for her role as Lexie on Grey’s Anatomy. The actress happily revealed the name of her daughter-to-be on the Ellen DeGeneres Show this week. According to Leigh, she and hubby Nathan West have decided to name their next child Aniston Kay. While Leigh says the Jennifer Anniston connection is merely a coincidence, Ellen joked and asked if they’d name their next baby “DeGeneres.”
Baby Aniston is due in May and will join big sibs Noah, 5, and Taelyn, 2.
The Grey’s Anatomy family is about to expand. Actress Chyler Leigh, who plays Lexie on the popular show, recently announced that she is expecting her third child with husband, musician Nathan West. The couple told PEOPLE that they are “absolutely thrilled and looking forward to the new addition to their young family.” They have two other children, Noah, five, and daughter Taelyn, two.
