Diego Luna & Wife Welcome A DaughterMara Siegler
“We’re very grateful to everyone who has been thinking of us and who has respected the intimate moment we’re experiencing now — the arrival of the family’s newest member,” the couple, who wed in 2008, said in a statement
What did the star of Y tu mamá también choose to call their new 6 pound bundle of joy?
Fiona, after his late mother who was killed in a car crash when he was 2.
The couple also have a 22 month old son, Jerónimo.
I’m really happy for this couple. I always say that about everyone, but this time I mean it.
Working as a celebrity journalist I have had the chance to meet a lot of the people I write about on this site. I usually don’t tell my personal stories about celebs, because they’re not that exciting, truth be told. However, I like to tell the story about meeting Diego because I want people to know what a nice person he is.
I met him a few years ago and at a time when I was temporarily deaf. I had taken a plane while I had a bad cold and the pressure had pushed everything into my ears so that I couldn’t hear (which was later remedied by piercing a needle into the canal, a process as painful as it sounds). I walked over to Diego at a party with a friend who told him my predicament and that I loved him in Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights. He hugged me and gave me a kiss on the cheek and it made me feel much less miserable.
