Alana de la Garza: Pregnancy “Is A Miracle!”

Mexican actress Alana de la Garza, who is expecting her first child with hubby Michael Roberts on October 11, can’t wait to welcome her baby boy!

The 34-year-old star, known for her role as Connie Rubriosa on the now canceled Law & Order, recently opened up about pregnancy, marriage and learning the sex of her little man.

On how pregnancy has changed her life: “As an actress, you’re constantly striving to eat right, work out and take care of yourself to make sure that you fit into your wardrobe. With pregnancy, you have no control—your belly is just going to get bigger. So clothing is a challenge. It’s really funny because I had little pregnancy pants at the beginning of the pregnancy and then suddenly I went to pull them up and they were stabbing me in the stomach. [Laughs].”

On finding out the sex of her baby: “It’s a little boy! I had all of my in-laws in town when the nurse told me, so we all found out together! I didn’t have a preference on whether I wanted a boy or a girl—I’d love to have one of each. This is a miracle!”

On her relationship with her husband: “We were friends for seven years and dated six more before we got married. My husband is my best friend and my biggest supporter no matter what I’m doing—whether I’m laying out by the pool or I’m playing Connie Rubirosa. It’s a wonderful relationship and a wonderful marriage.”
