CSI: Miami’s Emily Procter reveals that she found out she was pregnant from a dream.
She tells US magazine, “There was this old woman, and she said, ‘Honey, you’re pregnant!’ And I said, ‘No, I’m not. There’s no way.’”
Procter, 41, then woke up in the middle of the night to take a pregnancy test.
“I thought that dream was so bizarre, and when it was positive, of course I told my boyfriend [musician Paul Bryan],” she says. “We were like, ‘Wow! That is unbelievable.’”
The actress, who is due in December, adds that her CSI: Miami’s costars have been supportive and giving her advice.
“It’s probably 90 percent men [on set], and I expected them to be weird about it, and they have been so sweet,” she says. “I get guys coming in saying, ‘These are my daughter’s favorite onesies,’ and ‘My son loves this rattle’ or ‘This works really well for my family.’ These big burly guys who could walk on fire and not feel it are like, ‘Let me get you a chair. Are you thirsty? Are you drinking enough water?’”
She and Bryan are keeping the baby’s sex a secret, teasing “We have a couple of names picked out. We are going to see. It’s all in negotiation.”
