Ugly Betty’s Ana Ortiz Welcomes a Baby Girl


Ugly Betty’s Ana Ortiz Welcomes a Baby Girl

While Mr. Candy and I spent OUR weekend going to keg parties (you know, the usual activities for expectant parents), Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz spent hers doing something a tad more intense:  giving birth to a baby girl weighing 7 lbs., 10 oz.

“She is elated and completely glowing,” said Ana’s rep. “She is surrounded by her friends and family and so happy to be a mom.  She is just really enjoying the moment. The baby is absolutely beautiful.”

This is the first child for Ana and hubby, musician Noah Lebenzon.  The baby girl –- Paloma Louise Lebenzon -– which I first read as “Palmolive,” was born on Saturday at 4:25 p.m. in New York City.

Baby Paloma has reportedly already uttered her first words when, in response to this photo, she exclaimed, “Is that Mark St. James poking me?!  Tell him I LOVE his work on the show!  He and that Amanda girl are a riot.”

She’s a precocious one, that Palmolive.

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
