Emily Wickersham may have left NCIS, but she's already lined up her next big role: Mom. Back in July, Wickersham revealed that she and actor James Badge Dale are expecting their first child together, and she offered her followers another look at her growing baby bump in a new Instagram post.
Wickersham shared a photo from a beach trip where the actress's shadow is seen in profile, showing off her belly and her cowboy hate. "howdy 2," she captioned the cute pic.
In her initial announcement post, Wickersham stood at the other end of a pool while donning a black two-piece swimsuit and showing off her pregnant belly. In the post caption, Wickersham wrote "My mom taking a photo of a future mom with a baby boy on the way!"
Wickersham had played Ellie Bishop on NCIS for many seasons, but announced in May that she would not be returning. In a social media post, the actress shared some photos of herself from the show's set, and shared her news. "Hangin this hat and jacket up. What a great ride it's been. This cast, this crew, are top notch. I can't say enough kind words about this group that I've had the pleasure of working with for close to 8 years now and 172 episodes later."
She added, "This business is finicky and weird and consistency is a rarity. I've been lucky enough to be a part of a show where I got to show up and act and laugh and learn with wonderful people. A moment in time I surely won't forget."
Wickersham concluded her message, "Thank you CBS and NCIS for including me in a part of television history. Time goes fast. Eat it up but chew slowly." Notably, while Wickersham will not be returning, it has been confirmed that NCIS star Mark Harmon will be back for Season 19. There had been some question as to his future involvement with the show, but fans can rest assured he will return for at least part of the new season.
