Actors Roselyn Sánchez and Eric Winter welcome baby no. 2!
On the afternoon of Nov. 3, the parents of 5-year-old Sebella Rose welcomed their second child—a baby boy named Dylan Gabriel Winter.
“After many years of dreaming about you, you came into our lives in perfect condition! We are all so happy with your arrival,” Sánchez wrote via email alongside photos she exclusively shared with People en Español. “Your sister Sebella Rose looks at you with indescribable tenderness,” her affectionate note to her son continued, “Thank you for choosing our family to start your life. We love you.”
The duo didn’t start trying for their second baby until Sánchez was in her mid-30s, which posed challenges for their ability to conceive. Sánchez, 44, recently opened up to PEOPLE CHICA about their long, painful struggle to give their daughter a sibling via in vitro fertilization: “I’m thankful for the fact that I’m able to be a mom again at my age. After a lot of work and a lot of prayers, God gave me the opportunity,” Sánchez said.
“It’s been a long struggle to expand on the family,” Winter, 41, added, “and I’m very thankful that [we] got this chance during our last efforts.”
Back in September, while promoting their first children’s book Sebi and the Land of Cha Cha Cha, the couple told PEOPLE CHICA that they were battling over baby names. “I’m in the middle, and she’s the extreme,” Winter joked, referring to Sánchez’s Puerto Rican-inspired picks: “She just goes hardcore. You’d name the kid mofongo (a traditional Puerto Rican dish) if you could.”
“I like unique names!” Sánchez countered. She also confessed to thinking Winter’s choices were dull: “He just wants [the name] to be Jack, Rick or David.” She was partial to the name Pablo, which came to her in a dream, but her husband wasn’t feeling it.
But even if their newborn’s name doesn’t have the Latin ring Sánchez hoped it would, the parents are committed to raising Dylan with Puerto Rican influences, and plan to teach him Spanish with the help of their oldest child. “We want him to be bilingual like Sebella,” Sánchez said. “I don’t think it will be a problem,” Winter added, “because Sebella is [bilingual]. I think it will help.”
Congrats to the Sánchez-Winter family on their newest bundle of joy!
