CSI: Miami's Emily Procter Will Hide Real-Life Pregnancy

Open car doors. Cardboard boxes. Maybe a cadaver or two.

Many are the ways Emily
plans to hide her pregnant belly this season on CSI:
. The actress, who plays CSI Calleigh Duquesne on the hit
CBS drama, is expecting her first child with musician Paul Bryan early
in December. She broke
the news
to TV Guide Magazine on Monday. "We played around
with the idea of my character being pregnant and the general consensus
was, a pregnant woman shooting people might freak our audience out." And
so, Procter plans to duck and cover. "We shot a frantic scene this week
where people were running to escape," she says. "I just stood behind
the biggest guy I could find."

Procter says she'll only miss two episodes and has no plans to leave
the show: "As long as I can get my butt back in the gym," she says with a
laugh. It helps to have a supportive cast, she adds, particularly since
"standing around in heels all day is much harder than I expected." What
surprises her most is how sympathetic the men on the show have been.
Says Procter, "You'd think a bunch of tough guys wouldn't really know
what to say to a pregnant woman, but all the boys have been so sweet and
cute — 'Can I get you anything?' 'Need to sit down?' — I think I might
pretend to be pregnant even after the baby comes!'"
