The Ugly Betty baby boom continues! Actress Ana Ortiz is pregnant with her first child, PEOPLE has learned. Ana, 37, and her husband Noah Lebenzon, the guitarist for the band Half Life, are expecting the baby at the end of July. “They are thrilled and ecstatic,” says a friend of the New York City-based couple. “They can’t wait to be parents.”

In October, Ana told Page Six Magazine that expectant co-star Rebecca Romijn — who delivered daughters Dolly and Charlie last week — were making her “think it’s baby time. It’s definitely something that my husband and I talk about all the time.”

Other recent Ugly Betty babies include executive producer Salma Hayek‘s daughter Valentina Paloma, 15 months, Eric Mabiussecond son Rylan Jaxson, 4 weeks, Rebecca’s 10-day-old twins, as well as Christopher Gorham‘s third child, due this month.

I didn’t think it would happen so fast but wow!

If its twins I’m going to definitely think there’s something in the celebrity water.

Oh and she talked about this in October and that was right around the time she conceived I think.

Mia on

Aw congrats. I know she had talked about it for a while. If she’s due in July then….Yep, she conceived in October.

Aww, yay! I love Ana and Hilda is my favourite Ugly Betty character. Congratulations to her and Noah.

Formula for getting pregnant: Land Role on Ugly Betty + Drink Water = Baby lol. That’s so exciting!

I’m so happy for her. She was just talking about having that itch and that itch has been scratched. Best wishes to her and her husband. Seems all that baby-making dust floating around the Ugly Betty set finally landed on her. 🙂

I can’t wait to hear more about this pregnancy!

Kelpy on

Yep I’m thinking the same thing – suspicious water for sure 🙂

Ashley on

Yay! I was wondering when she would be expecting. 🙂 Congratulations to her.

Anyone know when they stop filming Ugly Betty for the season?

Will this be written in I wonder? Probably not but it would make for an interesting plot line if it was the married coach’s baby.

That would be a great story line if she had the coach’s baby! Love Ugly Betty!
