Ana Ortiz Looking Forward to 'Babymoon'

Before she welcomes a daughter at the end of July, Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz has a little rest & relaxation on her agenda! She recently revealed to In Touch Weekly that husband Noah Lebenzon has facilitated that much-needed downtime by planning a “babymoon” the couple hope to enjoy soon. Ana, 38, explains,

“We’re just gong to get away, just the two of us, for a spa weekend before the baby comes and spoil ourselves and get pampered.”

It should come as no surprise, then, that Ana raves about her “amazing” hubby. “There hasn’t been a day that goes by that he hasn’t told me that I’m gorgeous and sexy,” she said.

Baby-on-the-way is the first for the couple, who married in 2007.

Babymoons are such a great idea and can be done even on a very limited budget (I know because I have one!!!) I wouldn’t trade that time we had together for anything!! Plan on doing it for all of our pregnancies… (Assuming we are blessed with more!)

I just wanted to point out that the original meaning of ‘babymoon’ is the time when baby first arrives and a family has cocooned themselves from visitors and distractions in order to come to know their new addition and enjoy the incredibly magical time after the birth.
I hate seeing the term used incorrectly.

Lately I’ve been seeing “babymoon” used this way but it’s been used for years and years differently. Babymoon refers to the rest and recover after a baby is born similar to the ‘honeymoon’ tradition. Traditionally in nearly every culture after a woman gives birth she remains resting in at home with her new baby to bond and recover while other family members care for her and her household.

Using the term ‘babymoon’ to mean a trip before the baby is born makes no sense to me at all.

I agree with Megan and Amelita. A trip before baby arrives is not a babymoon. It’s just a pre-baby trip, which is a great idea….but it’s not a babymoon.
