Ana Ortiz of 'Ugly Betty' has a new baby boy; his name is not Bear

Ana Ortiz, with America Ferrera on Ugly Betty, has had her second baby

Ana Ortiz has a new baby boy with husband Noah Lebenzon. And his name is not Bear Blu.

Ortiz, who played Hilda on "Ugly Betty," told Latina magazine that the 7-pound, 7-ounce boy was born Saturday. Ortiz and Lebenzon have a 2-year-old daughter, Paloma Louise.

The last time the Ministry checked in on Ortiz, she was thinking up names for the new baby. But her thoughts were more traditional, unlike Alicia Silverstone's unique choice of Bear Blu for her new son with Christopher Jarecki.

Ortiz said: "It has to be Spanish but something non-speakers can pronounce without mauling. Suggestions?"  The couple decided on Rafael, but, according to, the middle name was still in the works.

So here are a few suggestions: Inspektor (Pilot Inspektor, son of "My Name Is Earl's" Jason Lee), Moonblood (Sage Moonblood, son of Sylvester Stallone) or CrimeFighter (Moxie CrimeFighter, child of Penn Jillette --  although, wait, that's a girl's name; Jillette's son is Zolten Penn). 

While Ortiz and Lebenzon are deciding on a catchy middle name for Rafael, we can look forward to seeing the actress in her upcoming role on HBO's "Hung," on which she'll reportedly play a woman with anger issues and a voracious sexual appetite. Good stuff.
