Call it a “mom”-umental moment.
Camryn Manheim, co-star of ABC’s “The Practice,” has given birth to a son in Los Angeles. Milo Jacob Manheim was delivered on Tuesday afternoon; he weighed nine pounds and two ounces.
“Mother and son are resting comfortably,” spokeswoman Carri McClure said on Wednesday. “This is Camryn’s first child.”
Since announcing her pregnancy in November Manheim has been vocal about her plans to raise the baby as a single mom. The actress was “not publicly involved with anyone,” and “not speaking about the father,” according to her manager, Peg Donegan. On Wednesday, McClure declined to answer questions about the baby’s father or Manheim‘s romantic life.
Coincidentally, Manheim announced that she was expecting about a week after her character became pregnant on “The Practice,” making her one of several stars who have had their real-life pregnancies written into their television and movie scripts. Kelli Williams from “The Practice,” Ming-Na on “ER,” and Catherine Zeta-Jones in “Traffic” are just a few who didn’t have to worry about hiding their condition from their camera.
