Rebecca Gayheart & Eric Dane are really trying for a baby – of course

Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart going for dinner in Santa Baebara
After their little “naked three-person hangout” tape was released last week, Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart seemed to play their hand pretty coolly. They didn’t offer any gasping, cloying apologies, they didn’t even offer up some extreme lie. Instead, they had their lawyer issue a hilarious word-parsing statement to the press, warning people not to refer to the tape in question as a “sex tape” while still managing to threaten everyone with a massive lawsuit if anyone officially released the entire “naked hangout” tape.

Personally, I was surprised at how little people seemed to care about this. I’m not even a Grey’s Anatomy fan, and I enjoy a good “Eric Dane is naked” story, so I really expected this stuff to get more play. I mean, it was Eric Dane naked! With his wife, the Noxema girl! And a beauty queen/prostitute/madam! That’s a good scandal! The collective attitude of the American public seemed to be “meh” or “consenting adults, whatever.”

But now it’s looking like Eric and Rebecca might be a little concerned that their images have taken a hit. Because “sources” are telling Life & Style Magazine that having a nice, wholesome, pure-as-snow, nothing-to-do-with-a-hooker, People Magazine-friendly baby is their top priority. Mm-hm. One “insider” even claims Rebecca is already knocked up:

Less than a week after a nude video featuring a seemingly intoxicated Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane hit the Internet, the actors were spotted laughing on their way to a romantic stay at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Calif., on Aug. 21. How could they be so lighthearted after the release of what could be a career-killing tape? Because they may be expecting a little McSteamy!

“Having a baby has been a top priority of the past six months,” reveals an insider. Though another insider says Rebecca, 38, and Grey’s Anatomy hunk Eric, 36, have had trouble conceiving since they eloped to Las Vegas in 2004, the first insider believes Rebecca’s finally three to four months pregnant.

“She turned down the role of Penn Badgley’s mother on Gossip Girl because it was based in NYC and she didn’t want to be away from Eric or travel that far. It was bad for her health,” the insider says. “She also turned down a Hallmark movie and a Lifetime movie because she was trying to have a baby.”

See… doesn’t baby news just drown out all of those confirmations that Cari Ann Peniche is a madam, and that Eric and Rebecca paid for her services? Don’t you just want to cover your ears and sing “La-la-la-la-la” over the sound of an on-going LAPD investigation into the activities on the tape? Babies! They’re not just band-aids for relationships anymore. They can save careers too!

    Rebecca looks fantastic. So the tape leaked – it’s their personal life. Every normal person will do something that they won’t be so proud of later in life. It happens all the time – our lives are just not exposed.

    Leave them alone!

    Thanks Kaiser – you made me smile :)

    I still don’t trust this Rebecca chick, she seems seriously disturbed. Never been into Eric. I don’t think their marriage will last. Maybe it will if they get third parties in from time to time. No pun intended.

    LOL. How is being 3-4 months pregnant and traveling bad for a woman’s health? If it’s a high risk pregnancy (due to her reported drug addiction?), I understand how travel is out of the question, but it doesn’t sound like that. That little sentence just stood out for me…

  4. Catie says:

    wasn’t there a blind item not too long ago about a couple who wanted to conceive, but her hubsand told the wife it wouldn’t happen unless she kicked her coke habit? i’m pretty sure it was these two…

    Laineygossip’s blind item-and it was about a heroin addiction . . .

    She should give the baby to the family of the little boy she killed – she’ll be a druggy mom anyway!

    @M – it puts a stress on your body to be in the same position for long periods of time. I am 4 months pregnant and flew 2 weeks ago – when the plane landed I felt like my whole belly was being shoved forward and had cramping for a few hours afterward.

    I can see why she would turn jobs down, it would be miserable to spend large chunks of time away from friends and family when expecting.

  8. Cinderella says:

    Jojo: That’s the truth. The last thing this woman should be contemplating is raising a child.

  9. looptylou says:

    Maybe her being a crackhead has something to do with the fact that she can’t conceive. Just saying?

  10. hmm says:

    That does look like a maternity shirt, though…

    I’m sorry but I don’t think drug addicts should have children. not even recovering drug addicts. Its too much of a risk. Life with an addict mother is so hard. My mother was consumed with drinking and drug and mostly neglected me and my brothers.

  12. Shanny says:

    she should not have a baby, once she has a baby of her own she will realize how much she took from the poor mother of the little boy she ran over and killed while playing with her cell phone, right now, yeah she probably feels terrible but she has no idea the hole left in someone who’s child’s life has been taken, it will set her in a depression and she will be a worse druggie than she allready is.

    wow, a drug addict, multiple sex partners and crackhead.. her parents must be so proud. Poor children if they do have any
