Hilarie Burton has one amazing makeup artist — or under-eye concealer. The actress, who gave birth just six weeks ago, looked flawless at the Wednesday, April 4, premiere of her husband Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s  sci-fi action flick Rampage. 

“It’s our first night away from the little baby, so yeah, it’s a big deal here,” Morgan, 51, told Entertainment Tonight at L.A.’s Microsoft Theater.

Though newborn daughter George stayed home, her big brother, 8-year-old Augustus, hit the red carpet with his parents and pointed out that his sister has the same name as the gorilla in Rampage. Morgan explained that was just pure coincidence and that they had already decided on their little girl’s moniker before he knew about George the ape.

Still, Augustus sees some similarities between his sibling George, and the furry one who appears in his dad’s movie. He even suggested the baby should be a gorilla for her first Halloween as they share a similar disposition. 

“She’s got a temper,” the Walking Dead actor revealed. “She’s got a temper on her.”

The One Tree Hill alum, 35, and Morgan announced on March 1 that they had welcomed their second child. In a lengthy follow-up Instagram post later that month, Burton shared a series of newborn photos and revealed that she and Morgan had struggled for five years to have baby No. 2. 

“I don’t want her birth to cause any other woman to weep at her kitchen table,” Burton wrote at the time. “If anything, my wish is that she would restore hope for others. Fertility is a fickle thing. And for other couples out there who have had dark days, we want to introduce our miracle baby to you and send you our love and support in finding yours.”

Morgan shared during a Monday, April 2, appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that he helped deliver both Augustus and George during Burton’s all-natural births.

“My wife is full-on tough!” he gushed. “No drugs . . . I was freaking out of my mind. She was great.”
