Ana Ortiz Preps for Her Baby Girl

Pregnancy hasn’t been a bumpy road for Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz. In fact, the actress, who’s due with a girl at the end of July, says she feels “phenomenal.”

“I’ve had a great experience so far,” the radiant actress told PEOPLE Saturday at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City, where she wore a form-fitting white J. Mendel dress (pictured). But, she added, “Talk to me in another month.”

So, what’s she craving? “French toast and pancakes,” says Ana, who’s married to guitarist Noah Lebenzon. “Other than that, I want citrus and lots of fruits.”

Ana is already busy designing her baby-to-be’s room. “I just met with the decorator today. I didn’t want it too frilly frou-frou, too canopy princess-y. So we’re doing a sort of eco-friendly, beautiful room,” she says. “I’m not sure of the color palette yet, but it’s going to be gorgeous.”

And Ugly Betty costars America Ferrera and Vanessa Williams are hosting her baby shower. “A friend of mine owns Green Baby, so Ana has all the green baby products she could ever want,” Vanessa told PEOPLE at the GLAAD event. “But my gift to her was the catering. I’ve got a wonderful woman who is going to cater. I said, ‘Please allow me to do that.’ ”

“I was so flabbergasted that she even offered,” said Ana.

Janessa,
I think she has to eat, she is pregnant. And if this is big, I don’t know what you consider normal.

For having 3 months left, she looks AMAZING. Heck, she looks amazing, period.

A caterer to cook for her: that is great for her!

Kresta on

I think she looks big for someone due at the end of July.

I’m glad she’s surrounded by people who care about her, that’s wonderful. However, I’m sort of irked by these celebrities who talk about being showered with gifts, when… really.. They have the money. I’m thankful for what Nicole Ritchie did and sort of hoped that more celebrities would follow on that train.

She looks amazing pregnant – What a glow!

Caliente! Ana definitely epitomizes the phrase Hot Mama! She’s stunning in that white dress!

And I love her ideas for her baby’s nursery! I hope she shares some photos of it, as well as some of her little girl.😉

Bella Mama on

Gorgeous! Love her! It’s getting much harder for them to disguise that bump on the show though : )

brandi on

Patrice, I haven’t been watching the show. Is her character supposed to be pregnant or are they just hiding Ana’s bump?

CelebBabyLover on

brandi- No, her charecter is not supposed to be pregnant (I don’t watch the show either, but I read it in an article here on CBB. :)).
