After Usmagazine.com reported yesterday that Alana de la Garza is expecting her second child, we reached out to the Mexican-American actress to get all of the adorable details on her pregnancy!

In an email conversation with Latina, the lovely actress (who is best known for her role as Connie Rubirosa on Law & Order), dished on everything from baby names to pregnancy cravings and why she'd love her kids to speak Spanish!

This will be the second child for De la Garza and her husband Michael Roberts. In September of 2010, the couple welcomed their first child {Kieran Thomas Roberts} into the world and they shared the news exclusively with Latina.com.

Read on to see what Alana had to say about her pregnancy! 

We just read the news that you're expecting. Congratulations!

We are so excited! 

Do you have any idea what you're naming her?

{We're} not sure about names yet...There's a short list but we figure when we see her little face, we will know. Of course, Kieran {her 2-year-old son} didn't have a name for the first three days! Lol.

How far along are you?!

I'm at 4 1/2 months and growing.

Are you having any fun pregnancy cravings? 

I'm obsessed with cucumber salad! It's absurd. And there was a night that I had to have a strawberry toaster strudel. It was raining and cold outside, but I couldn't think of anything else! I got my glorious box and had to stop at devouring two. However, my self control didn't last...The box was empty within 3 days. Ahhhhh, sooo good!

Is Kieran excited for his little sister's arrival?

He is so excited! About two weeks ago, it was 6 a.m., he crawled in our bed to cuddle. A minute later, I feel his little fingers poking my belly button. I gently move them and tell him to rest. 30 seconds later, I feel him poking my belly again! I look over and say "Honey, what are you doing?" He looks up at me and whispers, "I'm playing with the baby!" I melted.

Are you planning to speak Spanish with either of your kids?

I love the idea of my kids speaking Spanish. I wish I was better at it. Luckily, my son's really into Dora and Diego on Nick Jr. It makes it so much fun to have him tell me what things are in Spanish. When he was just over a year old, he pointed to our Christmas tree and started repeating something over and over. He was getting frustrated because I wasn't understanding what he was saying. Ten minutes later I realized he was saying tree in Spanish! Lol.

Do you and your husband have any fun Valentine's Day Plans?

No plans yet....mmmm got me thinking...:)
