Ana Ortiz is spending her time off from filming Ugly Betty enjoying being a newlywed (“It’s been nice to have some time to spend together,” she says), but she’s blaming her producer Salma Hayek if she gets pregnant any time soon.

“I saw her right before she gave birth and she pointed at me and [said], ‘You’re next!’,” Ortiz told PEOPLE, at Wilmer Valderrama’s Don Julio Tequila-sponsored birthday party at Stanton Social in New York City Thursday. “I thought, ‘Oh my god, did I just get pregnant? I think Salma just got me pregnant!’ “

Ortiz continued, saying that in actuality, she and her husband, musician Noah Lebenzon, are seriously considering expanding their new family. “We’re definitely talking about it,” she said, smiling. “It’s definitely in their air.”

In the meantime, Ortiz says she’s enjoying “nesting,” and hanging out with her Ugly Betty costars. “[America’s] boyfriend likes to host a little poker party with my husband,” she said. “It started as a boy’s night….It infuriated America. She was like, ‘We are absolutely playing poker!’ I don’t really want to play, so we’ll see!”
