Will 'Mad Men' Filming Keep Rich Sommer From Birth of Baby No. 2?

Rich SommerMad Men star Rich Sommer, who plays Harry Crane, is expecting a little man of his own soon. Sommer and his wife, Virginia, are expecting their second child -- a boy -- by the end of this summer.

“We have a little girl who’s about 2 and a half, and she’s gonna [get] a baby brother,” he told Access Hollywood. “We’ve very excited.”

With filming for the season still underway, will he be able to attend the birth?

“I asked for a couple of certain days off with fingers crossed,” he said. “But you know, it’s kind of the nature of the job. I’m hopeful that I can be there for the blessed event and we’ll see how long I get to spend there before I race back and put a tie and a shirt on.”

I can't imagine my husband missing the birth of either of my children, and would want more assurances than fingers crossed that he was going to be there. But I also can't imagine him being the star of one of the hottest televisions series ever.

In any case, congratulations to the couple. I wonder if they're considering the name Harry.

Could you handle your husband missing your baby's birth? Have you had to?
