Emily Wickersham may have left NCIS, but she’s already booked her next big role: motherhood. Wickersham announced in July that she and actor James Badge Dale are expecting their first child together, and in a new Instagram post, she gave her fans another look at her growing baby bump.
Wickersham shared a photo from a beach trip in which her shadow can be seen in profile, revealing her belly and cowboy aversion. She captioned the adorable photo, “Howdy 2.” Wickersham wore a black two-piece swimsuit and showed off her pregnant belly in her initial announcement post, which she posted from the other end of a pool. “My mom taking a photo of a future mom with a baby boy on the way!” Wickersham captioned the photo. ”
Wickersham had played Ellie Bishop on NCIS for many seasons before announcing her departure in May. The actress shared some photos from the set of the show on social media, as well as her good news. “I’m going to hang this hat and jacket up..” What a fantastic journey it’s been. This cast and crew are incredible. I can’t say enough good things about this group, with whom I’ve hаd the pleаsure of working for neаrly eight yeаrs аnd 172 episodes. “This business is finicky аnd weird, аnd consistency is а rаrity,” she аdded.
