Ana Patricia Gamez has that special glow! The co-host of Univision’s morning show Despierta America recently announced she is expecting her second baby, sharing the exciting news on Instagram. On Jan. 8, she posted a sweet photo with her husband Luis Martinez, their daughter Giulietta, 2, and pet Chihuahua in holiday attire with the caption: “Our family is growing, expecting our second baby.”

The family photo — taken in a dreamy set with playful white tents and colorful cushions — also has a painting in the background with the message: “Big sister training camp.” After her post, the beloved former beauty queen and second runner-up in Univision’s dance reality show ¡Mira Quien Baila! was showered in compliments and congratulatory messages from her followers.

Gamez, 30, also shared a second image of her daughter in the same set with the caption: “Giulietta is getting ready to be the big sister.”

On Jan. 8, she added a video on Instagram, revealing how she broke the news of her pregnancy to her husband and the rest of her family over Thanksgiving dinner at her home in Miami. She handed over a yellow gift bag to the dad-to-be with a positive pregnancy test, and he couldn’t believe his eyes when he opened it. The entire family started yelling and jumping for joy after the announcement.

The Mexican designer and fashionista, who has her own clothing and jewelry line, didn’t hide her desire to have a second baby. “For me, being a mom is the most important thing,” she told People en Español last year. Although she hasn’t revealed the baby’s gender yet, on Jan. 8 she shared a sweet photo of her baby bump and first ultrasound images. “Today I had an ultrasound and I heard my baby’s heartbeat for the first time,” she wrote.

The TV host also celebrated the big news on Despierta America yesterday and got a party — with balloons, flowers and cake — from her co-hosts.

Another tender photo she shared on Instagram on Jan. 8, with her daughter Giulietta giving her a kiss on the cheek, was captioned: “If there is something you can’t hide, it’s the smile and glance of a pregnant woman.”
