In the Season 11 premiere of Criminal MindsSSA Jennifer Jareau made a short cameo (A.J. Cook is on maternity leave,) but more importantly, so did Phoenix Sky Andersen! 

A.J. Cook welcomed a beautiful baby boy on July 23, 2015 with her husband Nathan Andersen. The two also have a seven-year-old that you may also recognize: Mekhai—who stars on Criminal Minds as Henry, JJ's first son.

Executive Producer Erica Messer shared that, like Henry, Phoenix will be joining the cast as Michael and JJ will be back at the BAU on the seventh episode of Season 11. 

Welcome to the BAU, Phoenix—we can't wait to see more of you!
