Unforgettable actress Poppy Montgomery gave birth to a baby girl on Monday morning. The Hollywood baby count is heating up!


Are you keeping track of the Hollywood baby count? Add one more bouncing baby to the list because actress Poppy Montgomery has given birth to a baby girl.

Violet Grace Devereux Sanford was born to the Unforgettable star and her boyfriend Shawn Sanford. Sanford is an executive at Microsoft.

Their daughter was born Monday morning weighing in at 6 pounds, 12 ounces. Baby Violet joins her big brother Jackson, 5, who is from Montgomery's previous relationship.

In an exclusive statement to People, the couple shared, "We are overjoyed with the arrival of our beautiful angel and filled with gratitude that she is happy, healthy and thriving."

Pregnancy always brings lots of odd cravings and Montgomery certainly had her share throughout the nine months. Often, the cravings came to her in dreams.

She revealed to People at her baby shower, "Little pieces of sushi talked to me in my sleep. Oysters lined up and did the samba."

While raw fish might have been off of the menu while she was pregnant, Montgomery is probably hitting the sushi bar as soon as she gets a free moment. With a wee one in the house, moms know that isn't easy.

Also keeping the actress busy is the premiere of Season 2 of her CBS drama Unforgettable. The actress plays a police detective with the ability to recall everything she sees. The series also stars Jane Curtin and Dylan Walsh.

The show was unceremoniously dumped at the end of last season only to get revived about a month later. Unforgettable returns this summer with 13 episodes and a July 28 debut.
