Sara Ramirez On Eric Dane's Baby On The Way: He'll Be A 'Great' Dad

Eric Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart – who was photographed sporting what seemed to be a baby bump just weeks ago – haven’t yet confirmed they have a child on the way, but one of Dr. McSteamy’s “Grey’s Anatomy” co-stars can’t wait for his new bundle of joy.

“Yes! I think he’s going to be great,” Sara Ramirez told Access Hollywood of Eric’s pending fatherhood at the 5th Annual GLSEN Respect Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday night. “I think think he’s going to be really fun and really tender – just a different side of him.

“The parent’s side of you is unlike anything else – that’s what I hear,” she joked.

And Sara added that all the “Grey’s” babies, including Ellen Pompeo and Katherine Heigl’s recent arrivals, would be welcomed into the family.

“I’ve seen pictures, I heard about them before they came along – it’s exciting, it’s thrilling.” Sara said. “Ellen’s coming back to the set soon, we’re all really excited for her.”
