There isn't going to be a baby on Bones for many more weeks. But a real-life baby associated with the show has already arrived -- Emily Deschanel and her husband David Hornsby welcomed a baby boy on September 21, 2011.

News of the baby's arrival landed all over Twitter by Thursday, and a rep for Emily Deschanel confirmed the new arrival with People.com. Twitter congratulations were sent by many, including Deschanel's Bones co-stars David Boreanaz -- "So happy for Emily and David on the birth of their baby boy. Welcome to a New World and Life...Salute'" --  and TJ Thyne -- "CONGRATULATIONS EMILY D!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay yay yay!!! :o)".

The baby (the first child for both of his parents) will be named Henry Hornsby. While it will most likely be quite awhile before young Henry makes his screen debut, he comes from a quickly growing acting family. Father David Hornsby is an actor known for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and will star in the fall comedy, How to Be a Gentleman. Emily Deschanel's sister, Zooey, stars in FOX's newest hit, New Girl. Even the Deschanels' parents are involved with show business: mother Mary Jo Deschanel appeared on shows like Twin Peaks, while father Caleb Deschanel is a cinematographer who has directed an episode of Bones.

It is unlikely that the real birth of Emily Deschanel's baby will have much of an effect on the upcoming season 7 of Bones. When stopped at the Emmys, David Boreanaz mentioned that six of the seven fall episodes of Bones had already been shot. Since only seven episodes in total were scheduled, there is probably little effect on production. Hopefully that's the case!
