Ana Ortiz: I Have Vanessa Williams on Stand By

Car seat? Check. Overnight bag? Check. Vanessa Williams? Check! With less than two weeks to go until she’s due to welcome her first child — a daughter — Ana Ortiz has made a list and checked it twice for the big day. “Is anyone ever ready?” she laughs, adding that baby girl’s nursery is complete. “I feel about as ready as I think I can, but I know that there’s going to be a million things that sort of are like, ‘Huh! Oh my gosh!'”

If her predictions are true, and things go awry on the big day, the expectant mama is relying on her Ugly Betty co-star — and mother of four — for support.

“I got Vanessa Williams on speed dial for any mommy emergencies!”

With little time to spare before shooting begins for the upcoming season, Ana reveals that baby will join her on set two weeks after her due date of June 25th. “I’m hoping they give me a little padding, but you never know,” she says. “Everybody is so excited … it’s going to be pretty amazing.”

I thought she was due in July…this site said she was.


We spoke to her recently and found out differently.

2 weeks after her due date?!?! Oh my goodness! I feel bad for her. Granted I had a c-section, but I couldn’t walk really well 2 weeks after having my son so I imagine getting around a set is not going to be so easy. I guess for every woman it’s different but it’s a pity she can’t have a little more time off to recuperate and enjoy her baby. Hope the baby comes a little early to give her the maximum amount of time!
