Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched Sons of Anarchy‘s season 6 finale (read our full recap), stop reading now. Rockmond Dunbar (Sheriff Eli Roosevelt), who’s now a regular on CBS’ The Mentalist, phoned EW to talk about the episode’s shocking ending — and to gush about his daughter, Berkeley Seon, born Dec. 6. “My wife is making my dreams come true. She gave me a baby girl, 8 lbs., 3 oz., 20.5 inches. She is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life. I’m just so happy, I don’t even sleep. All my friends told me, ‘Dude, you’re not gonna sleep. The baby’s gonna keep you up.’ I’m realizing it’s not the baby that’s keeping me up, it’s me staring at her every waking moment. I’m so absolutely in love and so happy with my life. And thank god for [The Mentalist exec producers] Bruno Heller and Chris Long, because if I didn’t have a job, maybe this whole outlook would be a little bit different because babies are f–kin’ expensive, man,” he says, laughing. “This little girl’s costing me an arm and a leg, and I love it.”
