Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart are featured with their precious 2-month-old daughter Billie Beatrice Dane on the cover of the new Us Weekly.

"She's beautiful," Dane says. "When she came out, she was really alert and her eyes were open. The doctor gave her to her mom, and I was obviously very emotional."

Giving birth March 3 at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center "was an overwhelming moment - probably the greatest moment in my life thus far," adds Gayheart.

"We felt so blessed. The moment we've been waiting for finally came."

Eric Dane and Family

Eric Dane says fatherhood has been life changing.

"It changes how you look at things and how you feel about everything. I like to think of myself as an artist, but now I'm working for my kid. Now I'm a father. I go to work and I come home and I make sure my kid is taken care of, make sure my wife is take care of.

"Childbirth is a miracle," he adds, "and we've created this life."

Congratulations again to the happy couple and new parents!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
