When Rebecca Romijn announced her baby joy to her Ugly Betty costars they were thrilled.
“We’re so excited,” said Ugly Betty star America Ferrera at Monday’s New York City premiere of her movie Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.
“I’m so happy for them,” gushed America, 24. “They’re going to be the best parents. I don’t think there could be a more wonderful father to girls.”
America added, “I just am waiting to see how tall those girls are going to be. I think they’re going to be born my height.”
Vanessa Williams has even started shopping. “I’ve already gotten them organic cotton baby clothes from Green Babies to start them off right,” Vanessa, 45, told People magazine. “Rebecca is glowing, and Jerry will make a really fun daddy.”
“She was more excited than you can imagine. Jerry’s a great guy. And they laugh so much, and they have so much fun together,” added Becki Newton.
The show’s cast is in the middle of quite a baby boom. Besides Rebecca, Eric Mabius is expecting his second child come fall, and Christopher Gorham’s third is due in January.
Costar Ana Ortiz said that Rebecca is “blissfully happy” to be expecting two babies. “She’s such a mom already. She has that Mama-Bear thing, always watching out for us, and she’s a hoot,” said Ana. As for Jerry? “Jerry is going to spoil them completely rotten.”
“They’re not going to be the uptight kind of parents, ‘You can’t do this, you can’t do that,’ ” shared Mark Indelicato, 14, who plays Justin Suarez on the show. “They’re going to be awesome parents. They love to have fun. But they still have boundaries. And they live in the coolest place ever in L.A.”
“I’m a cheap babysitter,” added Mark. “I only charge five bucks an hour.”
