Actor Dan Bucatinsky and screenwriter Dan Roos adopted two children together, Eliza and Jonah.

You may know Dan from Scandal, or recognize Don's writing from Marley & Me.

For their sake, I hope not.

As Cheyenne put it, "We put their initials together — 'w' and 'e' — and I just thought that was the sweetest thing; it’s no longer just an 'us,' it’s a 'we.'"
