Emmy-winning "The Practice" star Camryn Manheim gave birth to a son on Tuesday afternoon, her publicist announced on Wednesday. The actress, 39, apparently intends to raise the child, whom she has named Milo Jacob, as a single mom. "This is Camryn's first child," said spokeswoman Carri McClure in a brief statement. "Mother and son are resting comfortably." No further details were provided, and McClure declined to answer queries regarding the baby's father or whether or not Manheim was seeing anyone romantically. Once it was announced last year that Manheim was expecting, writers on "The Practice" incorporated her pregnancy into the show, making her antagonistic lawyer character Ellenor Frutt pregnant, too. (Another character on the show, Lindsay Susanne Dole, played by actress Kelli Williams, was also expecting.) Something of an iconoclast, Manheim was influenced by her activist parents and was once arrested for marching in a pro-choice demonstration, reported PEOPLE. She has 12 piercings in her right ear, a tattoo of Pegasus above her ankle and drives a motorcycle -- though that could conceivably change now that she's a mom.
