“Weeds” star Mary-Louise Parker is a proud new mom – and if you’re wondering why you didn’t see a baby bump in her sleek Emmy dress, there’s a reason.

Parker has adopted a baby girl from Africa, reps for the actress told People magazine.

The 43-year-old Parker, who was up for two Emmys on Sunday night for her role as a dope-dealing soccer mom in the hit Showtime series, was seen with her new daughter over the weekend leading up to the awards show.

Parker also has a 3-year-old son with actor Billy Crudup. The couple, who dated for eight years, split before the child was born in 2004.

Parker co-stars with Brad Pitt in the new Western, “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” Her other film credits include “Saved!,” “Boys on the Side” and “Fried Green Tomatoes.”
