The 37-year-old "Grey's Anatomy" star gushes about his newborn daughter. "She's beautiful," he says. "When she came out, she was really alert and her eyes were open. The doctor gave her to her mom, and I was so ... you know, 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 Rebecca, 38. "We felt so blessed. The moment we've been waiting for finally came."
McSteamy says that fatherhood has been life-changing. "It changes how you look at things and how you feel about things," he says. "I like to think of myself as an artist -- but now I'm working for my kid. Now I'm a father. I've got a lunchpail, I go to work and I come home and I make sure my kid is taken care of, and I make sure my wife is take care of .... Childbirth is a miracle, and we've created this life."
