Actress Constance Marie is a new mom! The former George Lopez star and her fiancé, yoga teacher Kent Katich, welcomed daughter Luna Marie Katich on Thursday, February 5th in Santa Monica, Calif. Luna arrived at 4:12 p.m., weighing in at 8 lbs., 13 oz.

Constance, 43, announced her pregnancy — and the sex of the baby — in September. Deciding to take the parenthood plunge came later in life for Constance, who laughingly shared,

“After 10, 11 years of playing a mom, starting with Selena and then to the George Lopez show, I think I finally decided I wanted to be one in real life!”

I bet she is adorable. I wonder if we’ll see any pics?

Technically they are not married, and don’t plan to actually marry even though they are engaged. The event of the birth of their daughter could change their minds and maybe they’ll marry later.

I remember Victoria Beckham saying a long time ago that if she ever had a girl, she would want to name her Luna.

Really pretty name🙂 I’m so happy for Constance.

danda_lion on

Luna means “moon” in *both* Italian and Spanish, but given that Constance is Latina, I assume she thought of the Spanish.

Congrats to Constance, Luna, and Daddy.
