Who Is Eric Bilitch? Emilie de Ravin's Boyfriend Is One Talented Dad
Once Upon a Time's Rumbelle may not have a baby (yet), but the actor who brings Belle to life does. Emilie de Ravin welcomed a baby girl with boyfriend Eric Bilitch named Vera Audrey de Ravin-Bilitch, she announced on Twitter Sunday. Her tweet reads, "Welcome to the big wide world! Vera Audrey de Ravin-Bilitch born March 12th 2016. Couldn't be happier! So in love with our little girl!" Blitch also took to Twitter to express his joy and wrote, "Madly in love with our gorgeous girl. And her momma is the most wonderful woman on earth! Could not be happier!" Since these two are now parents (and will surely be amazing ones at that), let's get to know de Ravin's man a little bit better.
Like de Ravin, Bilitch is part of the entertainment business. According to his Twitter bio and IMDb, Bilitch is a filmmaker. He directed the 2015 Heller Awards, which recognize the industry's talent reps, including managers, agents, and casting directors. He even created his own original series, Professional Friend, which won Best Comedy Series at The Independent Series Awards in 2014. Bilitch is also known for the 2016 film The Submarine Kid starring American Horror Story's Finn Wittrock and de Ravin. Hmm... maybe this is how the two met?
According to the Napa Valley Film Festival, Bilitch has also worked with directors Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Southpaw) and David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, Joy) at production company Wondros. If that's not enough talent for you, a slew of Bilitch's projects (short films, music videos, commercials, and viral videos) have been featured on NPR, Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, PBS, and MTV.
Well, I think it's safe to say that de Ravin and Bilitch's little girl has two very talented parents. Like the former Lost actor, Bilitch is also going to make a great dad, and not just because he can (and probably will) teach her all about the filmmaking biz. Check it out.
He Loves Emilie Immensely
Vera will never doubt her parents love for one another, that's for sure.
He's An Animal-Friendly Guy
I mean, what makes for a better dad than a man who treats animals with love and respect?
He's All About Family Portraits
I can't wait to see one featuring Vera.
He's Friends With Rumple
Not only does Vera's mother play Rumple's love interest on OUAT, but both of her parents are friends with the actor who portrays him. I think they just officially became parents of the year.
Congrats to de Ravin and Bilitch on their new adventure as parents!
