Baby on the way for Ugly Betty star Ashley Jensen

TV actress joins the baby boom on the US hit show

In a case of life imitating art, the Ugly Betty actress, Ashley Jensen, who plays pregnant fashion stylist Christina in the show, has ended speculation on her growing baby bump.


Ashley, 38, revealed to a US magazine that she is ‘excited’ about the news. She is expecting her first baby with actor husband Terrence Beesley – unlike her character who is carrying a baby created from the sperm of the deceased Mode magazine boss, Bradford Mead, and the egg of scheming ex-wife, Wilhelmina.


There seems to be something in the water on the Ugly Betty set with three other cast members recently joining the parenting club. Rebecca Romjin, who plays sex-change sister Alexis Mead on the show, gave birth to twins Dolly and Charlie in January. Her on-screen brother, Eric Mabius become a dad for the second time in December 2008 and Betty’s sister, Ana Ortiz gave birth last month to baby girl, Paloma.
