She also said Kieran is already a doting big brother.
“He was so excited and in awe! He kept kissing her forehead and saying ‘Baby sista’s not in Mama’s belly anymore! It was one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen and most proud I’ve ever been.”
According to US Weekly – De La Garza’s most recent starring role was as neurologist Lena Solis on NBC’s Do No Harm. She also has appeared on CSI: Miami, Charmed, Smallville, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Two and a Half Men.
