Luis Miguel and Aracely Arámbula Welcome Son Daniel

Mexican pop singer Luis Miguel and Mexican actress Aracely Arámbula have welcomed their second baby boy together! Son Daniel was born at 10:55 a.m. on Thursday, December 18th in Beverly Hills, Calif., weighing in at 6.6 lbs and measuring 20.86 inches. After delivering her son naturally, Aracely, 33 – who admits fearing she would welcome her baby boy in the car after her water broke — shares that the raw experience of childbirth was well worth it.

“I am convinced that women are very brave, my respects for all mothers, especially now that I know what it’s like to experience this pain without anesthesia…but the great fortune of being a mother makes any pain well worth it.”

Daniel joins big brother Miguel, 2 next week, and Luis’ daughter Michelle Salas, 18, from a previous relationship. The pregnancy had been announced in July.

Wow, no drugs. That’s awesome! Terrifying, but awesome!

I feel bad that Aracely was worried she’d have Daniel in the car after her water broke. I wish I could go back in time and assure her that your water breaking doesn’t mean birth is immenient (my grandmother is living proof of that. She didn’t give birth to my mother until over 12 hours after her water had broken!). Anyway, I just wanted to assure any worried moms-to-be that your water breaking doesn’t mean your baby is going to arrive within minutes! :)

J, Luis Miguel’s full name is Luis Miguel Gallego Basteri. Gallego Basteri is his last name. Little Miguel and Daniel will probably have the same last name, or the parents may take one of the last names.

Sorry, I forgot to add the rest before I posted. Luis Miguel and Aracely may get rid of one of his last names and add Arámbula to the children’s last name.

Wow another little boy, I bet he is just as gorgeous as his older brother. They had broken up a few months ago, I wonder if they are back together. Aracely is so gorgeous.

Luis Miguel’s second last name, Basteri, will be dropped and the boy’s full names are Miguel and Daniel Gallego Arambula.If they boys had his two last names it would indicate that they are brothers born to the same parents.

Their older child’s name is not Miguel Miguel. In most Spanish-speaking countries your surname consist of two surnames. The first is inhertited from your father, the second from your mother. So Miguel and Daniel’s surname would be Gallego Arámbula. But none of this matters because Miguel and Daniel were born in the U.S.. Their surname would just be Gallego. Pronounced Gah-yeh-goh.
