Baby makes three for Emily Procter, 42, and her boyfriend, musician Paul Bryan.

The couple welcomed daughter Pippa in early December, according to TV Guide (via CelebBabyScoop).

This is the first child for Procter, who admitted that the pregnancy came as a surprise. "I'm so excited! I actually had no idea that I was pregnant, and in the middle of the night I had this dream," Procter told in September. "There was this old woman, and she said, 'Honey, you're pregnant!' And I said, 'No, I'm not. There's no way.'"

When the pregnancy test came out positive, Procter's dream became a reality. "I told my boyfriend, and we were like, 'Wow! That is unbelievable.'"
