Of deciding what to call their new addition, the spouses of almost a decade tell PEOPLE they “just really liked the name” Aviana a lot.

“Going to be saying [our] kid’s name a lot in life so gotta like the way it rolls off the tongue!” they explain. “We then looked up the meaning, which is ‘living in grace’ and/or ‘delicate and birdlike,’ and felt it was very fitting for our little princess.”

Cedeño opened up to PEOPLE CHICA in February about how he celebrates his multicultural heritage (the Days of Our Lives and Devious Maids alum was born to an Afro-Cuban father and an Irish and English mother), as well as how he passes that prioritization down to his son.

“In my adult years, I’ve been able to explore more Latin culture. I’m pretty fluent now in Spanish,” he revealed, adding, “but I was always infatuated with it. Now I watch the news in Spanish and speak it every day of my life. Trying to teach it to my kid too.”
