Theo Rossi’s dad-to-be news has Sons of Anarchy fans smiling. Rossi, who played Juice on the hit FX show, is expecting his first baby with wife Meghan McDermott. As it happens, the couple managed to keep the news under wraps for quite some time.
People shares the big news from Rossi. The couple’s baby is due on his birthday, June 4. Theo and Meghan don’t know if the baby is a boy or a girl, but he says they’re really excited about the pregnancy. The photo People shares of the couple debuting McDermott’s baby bump shows them positively beaming.
Rossi, 39, has always been quite public about his support of those who have served in the military, being an ambassador for the Boot Campaign. He has also been involved in a number of other charitable projects, and fans have loved to lend their support over the years.
However, Theo tends to keep his private life much more private. Sons of Anarchy fans were treated to the news that Rossi had gotten married and was ready to welcome his first baby all in one fell swoop. It seems that Rossi and McDermott quietly married in a small New York wedding.
McDermott works for the Boot Campaign, and Theo and Meghan met through their work with the charity. The Texas native relocated to NYC a while back and coordinates media relations for the charity. While Theo and Meghan had been spotted together at a couple of events in 2014, the wedding and baby news definitely comes as sa surprise to many.
Theo and Meghan shared all of the big news at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Tuesday night during the Vanity Fair party. Us Weekly shares that Rossi joked about how he doesn’t like to sleep as it is, so that should help when it comes time for those sleepless newborn nights.
While Theo Rossi’s dad news comes as a surprise to SOA fans, he says that the pregnancy has gone smoothly for his new wife and it’s clear they can’t wait to welcome their little one. The Sons of Anarchy alum says that he’s very excited for his child to grow up in New York City, calling it the greatest place in the world. Rossi says the city made him who he is today, but he notes that it’s a very different place from where he grew up.
As for his work life, Rossi has been keeping busy since last December’s SOA final episodes. He’s got a film called When the Bough Breaks coming up, and his first film from his production company Dos Dudes Pictures, called Bad Hurt, is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival this year. The movie stars Ashley Williams alongside Rossi and a host of other talented actors.
Sons of Anarchy fans are excited to check out Rossi’s new film as it becomes available, but they’re even more excited to hear Theo Rossi’s dad-to-be news. Clearly it’s going to be a big year for the SOA star and his fans are thrilled for him.
