“CSI: Miami” star Emily Procter and her musician/producer boyfriend Paul Bryan are expecting their first child together.

The actress, who stars as Calleigh Duquesne, on the popular CBS drama confirmed her pregnancy to E! News and revealed her baby bump will not be part of her crime show’s upcoming season.

“They’re not writing it in,” the blonde beauty told the website. “I don’t know why, except they said that maybe the audience would worry about Calleigh running around with her gun. Like, ‘Oh! It’s not safe!’ It’s gonna be a challenge, I think, for us to cover it, ‘cause I still have a ways to go.”

Emily, however, had a few ideas of her own regarding how to hide her blooming belly.

“What should I do? Should I hide behind Horatio (David Caruso)? Maybe a body? An ambulance?” she laughed.

The actress said she knows the sex of the baby, but the couple is “keeping it a secret.”

As for names, Emily said she and Paul have put that on hold.

“We’re [at] the point where we had thrown some names out there and they had been met with, ‘Oh! That’s terrible!’ So we decided to quit talking about it,” she said.
