Congrats to actress Poppy Montgomery!

A rep for the Unforgettable star confirmed today the star is expecting her first child with her Microsoft executive boyfriend Shawn Sanford. The couple began dating in late 2011 after meeting at an event in Puerto Rico.

Poppy is already mom to 5-year-old Jackson, her son from a previous relationship with actor Adam Kaufman.

Taking a break from acting in 2009 after wrapping her series Without a Trace — where she met Adam — she tells USA Today, “I needed to take the time and actually be like mommy for a minute.”

Following a two-year hiatus, the soon-to-be mom of two returned to television with a new show, Unforgettable, and a new beau, Shawn Sanford. Poppy gushed to People, “Shawn and I are thrilled and Jackson is so excited to be a big brother!”
