It’s a boy for Ana Ortiz!

The former Ugly Betty star, 40, and her husband Noah Lebenzon welcomed their second child, son Rafael, on Saturday, Sept. 27, Latina confirms.

The baby weighed in at 7 lbs., 7 oz. and measured 20 inches long, but his parents have not yet decided on a middle name.

But this should come as no surprise. Early in the pregnancy, Ortiz — who will appear on Hung this season — revealed she and Lebenzon were having trouble agreeing on a name.

“It has to be Spanish, but something non-speakers can pronounce without mauling,” she said.

Ortiz and Lebenzon are already parents to daughter Paloma Louise, 2.

I love the name Paloma, which means ‘dove’ in Spanish. Plus palomitas means popcorn — my favorite food. 🙂

Ana Ortiz was the sister of Betty on Ugly Betty. The hair dresser with the son.

I loved Ana back when Ugly Betty was still on. I know she had such trouble with starting a family and I am so happy to see she now has two healthy and beautiful children to show for it.

I will ignore Moyel, because they are obviously cutting school and should go back and stay there.

Anyways, much congratulations to Ana, Noah and big sister Paloma!

Anna, we got it the first time. No need to rephrase the EXACT same thing you said and post under a different name.

Congrats to the entire family! This is such a blessing!
