I realize the birth was announced in the group, here's some details from E!online. 'dock ````````````` Charisma's Little Angel by Lia Haberman, Mar 27, 2003, 12:00 PM PT Unencumbered by centuries of bloodlust, blinding visions or demon spawn, Charisma Carpenter successfully gave birth to a baby boy on Monday. It's a first child for the WB star and hubby Damian Hardy. The newborn made his debut into a vamp-free Hell-Ay late Monday, nearly a week after Carpenter's original due date. "Baby and mother are doing very well," said a rep for the actress. No other details were released. Carpenter, 32, and the baby's father, a psychology major at Santa Monica College, wed in a shotgun ceremony in Las Vegas last October attended only by their immediate families. The couple was waiting for baby to make three before throwing a glitzier bash in Tinseltown. Mom and Dad reportedly met five or six years ago, dated, got engaged, broke up and then got back together (at least nine months ago by our calculations). Carpenter, 32, is best known for playing head case Cordelia Chase first on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and currently on Angel, where her visions direct the demon-fighting group to Los Angelenos in trouble. Cordelia spent much of this season on a higher plane (i.e., out of sight) because of her real-life pregnancy, until it was revealed that Cordy (or at least her evil double) was preggers with Connor's baby--Connor being Angel's bundle of broodiness who grew up faster than any TV kid in tube history. Born in Las Vegas, Carpenter kicked her heels up as a San Diego Chargers cheerleader in 1991 before moving to Los Angeles where she caught the attention of TV titan Aaron Spelling, who cast her in the short-lived series Malibu Shores. The following year, the thespian auditioned for the title role in Buffy the Vampire Slayer but wound up being cast as snotty Cordelia instead. The move paid off for Carpenter, who got Buffy's true love all to herself in 1999, when she and David Boreanaz left to star in their own spinoff series, now in its fourth season. Carpenter is expected to return to work soon, albeit briefly, to wrap up the season. It's possibly the series' last--Angel wasn't among the slate of six shows given an early pick up date by the WB this week.
