'Dancing' Star Becomes a Dad
Actor has new, toothless playmate for his two dogs
"At 11:18 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 6, Lisa O'Hurley gave birth to a healthy 7-lb., 15-oz., 21-inch baby boy named William Dylan O'Hurley," says the actor's publicist, Liza Anderson, according to People. "It is the first child for the couple, who couldn't be more thrilled."
O'Hurley also had his other baby, the book "It's Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump: And Other Life Lessons I Learned from Dogs," become a New York Times bestseller the same day.
"We can't believe that we could love something as we do -– our new little boy," says O'Hurley. "The dogs still aren't sure about the baby, but they are really happy about the book becoming a bestseller."
The couple wed in August 2004 and currently live in Beverly Hills with their dogs. O'Hurley, 49, was previously married to soap actress Eva LaRue for two years.
Although he's a daytime TV veteran, O'Hurley made his first big impression as the eloquent yet pompous catalog king J. Peterman on "Seinfeld," for which he earned a Screen Actors Guild award for best ensemble. This also led to numerous advertising campaigns.
In 2005, he became even more popular on ABC's ballroom dance reality show "Dancing with the Stars," for which he was voted the runner-up after fellow contestant Kelly Monaco wowed the judges and created a fan uproar. Several months later, viewers selected O'Hurley as the winner in a televised rematch.
O'Hurley starred as Billy Flynn in Broadway's "Chicago" earlier this year. He also hosts "Family Feud."
