How adorable! Ugly Betty’s Ana Ortiz and husband Noah Lebenzon welcomed their baby girl Palmoa Louise, on June 25th and now the proud parents are showing her off!
Ana said of her daughter’s birth:
“I was so scared, but it really was a wonderful and — I hesitate to say easy — but it was a nice experience.
I [had her at] Mount Sinai Medical Center, overlooking [Central Park]. My mom was there, my best friend Jill and my husband, so it was a full house. But it was great. I didn’t have to push until 25 minutes before [she was born].
I’ll tell you the funniest part. When I was in the process of giving birth my husband was right with me and he’s telling me, ‘Babe, you’re doing so great,’ whispering encouragement –- he’s super mellow and cool.
Then I started to crown a little bit and he’s still going, ‘Oh my God baby, it’s amazing. You’re doing great, keep going.’ And then her head popped up and then he goes, ‘Woah, woah, woah!! Holy moly! That is crazy.’
I couldn’t see it, thank God! They offer you a mirror and I was like, ‘Uh, no.’ There will be none of that. I don’t need to see that. I was a birthing partner for two of my friends so I’ve been at births. But I didn’t want to see my own.”
She’s beautiful! And Ana looks wonderful!
