Paula Garces is pregnant! In an exclusive interview with People, the 39-year-old actress described the joyous news as a “miracle.”
The Devious Maids star, originally from Medellín, Colombia, said she had found out the news during an annual check-up at her doctor’s office.
“We’re excited to finally be pregnant after so many years and make my daughter the best big sister, and my husband an amazing dad,” Garces said, in reference to two miscarriages she had suffered while trying to get pregnant with her husband, entrepreneur and producer Antonio Hernandez. Garces has a 21-year-old daughter named Skye Mahoney from a previous relationship.
After Garces announced she was pregnant with her second child, her husband planned a getaway beach weekend to celebrate at the Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, according to People.
“I can’t wait to debut my belly at Comic Con this July,” the actress gushed. She plans on debuting her new comic book trilogy Aluna at the event held in San Diego this summer – it’s the namesake of the first Latina video game superhero character.
Congrats to Garces and her family!
