Is Anna quite a big paparazzi target in the US then? I’m just thinking the reason she didn’t release her daughter’s name was because she’s followed a lot and she didn’t want her baby hollered at from all directions as she grows up. I wonder if she is planning on telling people at all?

Anyway, I loved her on Without A Trace, I’m not so familiar with her on CSI:NY, but I’m sure she’s great. Congrats to the whole family.

I had no idea she was married or had a child already! I’m a big fan of all the the CSI shows. Congrats:)

Dana on

Oh, yay! I am so glad they are writing this pregnancy in. I hated having her hide behind lab equipment and other actors last time around.

Congrats to Anna and her husband on the new little one. I would love to know the name of her daughter, but completely understand why actors choose to keep the name private. They are so much in the public eye on a daily basis that this is one area they still have control over.

Congratulations to Anna & Eric! This is fantastic news, I’m so excited for her. I love her & the show!

To answer your question Phoebe I think that Anna just wants privacy that’s why she never released her daughter’s name. I don’t blame her for making that decision.

Oh, I completely respect a right to privacy, I was just wondering if there was a specific reason with regards to press attention. It’s just that Anna isn’t famous over here in the UK and I just wondered if she got a tonne of attention in the US. She’s beautiful so I’m sure her daughter (whatever her name is!) is too, and the baby in utero! Congrats again!

Brittany on

No, she’s not a big pap favorite. I think she just doesn’t care to make a huge deal about her baby.

But I’m excited about them adding it on the show. That will be interesting. I’m a huge fan of hers and of NY. It’s going to be great.

And a big congrats to her and Eric. She looks so cute pregnant…lol.

A huge congratulations to Eric, Anna, and their daughter. Ms. Belknap is a wonderful actress and a joy to watch on CSI:NY. Unlike other celebrities, she does not showcase her daughter around. I have a great deal of respect for her because of that. Again, congrats to Ms. Belknap and her family.

I want to extend my sincerest congratulations to Anna, Eric and their daughter! I wish her an uneventful pregnancy and delivery and a healthy baby!

I am a fan of hers, and while I’m very happy to hear that this will be written into the show, my first thoughts are with Anna, her family and the impending arrival of baby #2!

I sincerely wish them all the best!

Nikki on

i am so geared up to see the first csi baby more so its danny and lindsay, and anna and her husband i wish the best of wishes on a happy and healthy pregnancy and birth.

It is just sad to here that some people online are so angry that the characters are having a baby they are blaming poor Anna because she ‘dared to get pregnant’ and they are putting it in the show its not her fault that she has a happy marriage and at her stage in her live she wants to have a family with her husband.
Some people need to stop hating the poor girl because they do not like Lindsay and not be so mean there is enough in the world and how can someone do that with a innocent baby who has not even arrived into this world is lost on me.
