John C. McGinley, who plays irascible Dr. Cox on NBC's Scrubs, is a new daddy. He and his wife, Nichole, an Ashtanga yoga instructor and birthing doula, are the proud parents of a daughter. Born early Saturday morning at their Malibu home, Billie Grace weighed in at 8 lbs. and measured 21 inches long.

John and Nichole met on the beach at Malibu (inadvertently introduced by McGinley's son Max), and were married on April 7, 2007. - N.F. Mendoza
