Well wishes are pouring in from Durand's celebrity friends. Fellow actor Matthew Bomer tweeted, "Congratulations my friend! So excited to meet Amelie, and so happy for your beautiful family." British actor Robert Kazinsky tweeted, "@Kevin_Durand @SandraDurand23 super congratulations daddy Durand! Sasquatch jr." Meanwhile former wrestler Robert Maillet tweeted, "Laura, Mekki and I are so happy for you both! Welcome to parenthood!"
Durand replied to all of them, writing, "Thank you kindly for all the well wishes. We are so grateful for all the love. Xoxo."
Durand gets to spend some time with his baby before third season of "The Strain" starts filming. "We're pretty excited. My life is completely all about pink frilly things now, I have a little girl coming. My wife is such a girly-girl and now she's having a girl, it's like everything is pink, which I don't mind it'll soften me up a bit (laughs)," Durand told International Business Times last week.
