Two-Line Lower Third Title Help Please!

Hello Folks, 
I could really use some help here. I have a Lower Third (L3) set up so the background shape resizes according to text lenght for both name and title using SourceRectAtTime. However, for the life of me, I cannot figure out a way to  make the background shape for the title to resize accordingly when the title text is too long and it needs to fit into two lines. I am hoping it is something pretty easy to fix. I am attaching screenshots of when it works perfectly in a one-line title and another screenshot when it doesn't resize for a two-line title. I am also including Dropbox link to the actual AE file for anyone to analyze and help me. Perhaps it's right in front of me and I am just missing it. Thanks a lot in advance!

You need something like this for your TitleBgHeight slider:

thisComp.layer("SpeakerTitle").sourceRectAtTime().height + 25

Appreciate the advice, Dan! That's what I thought too but when I tried it, it did something funky to background shape when the text ramped up from the bottom so I thought I was doing something wrong. But no biggie, I just switched my text ramp to come from the right insted of the bottom and that seems to have done the trick. Thanks again!
