Emily Procter, who plays CSI Miami's Calleigh Duquense, has given birth to a baby girl! The actress and her musician boyfriend Paul Bryan, welcomed their daughter, named Pippa, in early December. Procter returned to the CSI set on Monday as her costar, Adam Rodriguez made his directing debut.
Procter offered to TV Guide while on set: "I wouldn't have missed it. In a way it fits that my first day back is Adam's first time directing because I felt like he genuinely wanted me to have a healthy baby. He wanted me to be happy, and I wish the same for him. I think that's what you get after nine years together. It's that genuine want for each other to be happy." Rodriguez also gushed his mutual feelings for Procter to TV Guide with: "We're so happy for Emily. This is something I know she's wanted for a long time. She's got the right guy in her life and it was the right time for her, and it's so great when you get to see somebody be able to have it all. She's really got it all together."
Procter will officially reprise her CSI investigator role during the March 13 episode "Hunting Ground."
