LOS ANGELES (AP) _ ``ER'' doctor Alex Kingston is a new mother.

Kingston, who plays Dr. Elizabeth Corday on the NBC medical drama, gave birth to a daughter Wednesday, publicist Marcel Pariseau said.

Kingston and the baby, who weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces, are ``healthy and happy,'' Pariseau said Thursday. Kingston's husband of two years is free-lance journalist Florian Haertel.

Her pregnancy was written into ``ER.'' Corday and boyfriend Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards) are expecting a child.
