ABC Family's Baby Daddy is introducing a new family member.

Necessary Roughness vet Amanda Detmer has joined the comedy in a season-three recurring role, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The Soul Man's Kim Coles has also booked a guest-starring role.

Detmer will appear in several episodes as Riley's (Chelsea Kane) Aunt Margot. Described as fun and free-spirited with an aversion to responsibility, Margot's got a few secrets up her sleeve.

Set for one episode, Coles will portray Vice Principal Peters. Still working at Riley and Danny's (Derek Theler) old high school when the two return to chaperone a prom, she has no filter and is a stickler for the rules. She's just as tough on Riley as she's always been, but has a soft spot for Danny.

Detmer is repped by Abrams Artists Agency. Coles is repped by elev8 and Authentic Speakers Agency.

Baby Daddy airs a holiday episode Dec. 11 on ABC Family.
