Another Ugly Betty
actress is engaged! Last week, the publicist of actress and executive producer Selma Hayek announced that Hayek is engaged to Francois-Henri Pinault and is expecting her first child with him. Now, wedding bells are also ringing for actress Ana Ortiz
, who is engaged to musician Noah Lebenzon. According to People, the couple is scheduled to tie the knot four months from now, in Puerto Rico.
Ecstatic about the forthcoming celebration, Ortiz expresses her sentiments to People
. "I'm really thrilled and my cheeks are hurting from smiling," Ortiz said. "He's a California boy so it's a nice balance for my crazy New Yorker." And since Ortiz is busy with her work on the drama-comedy Ugly Betty
, her father, Angel L. Ortiz, who is a city councilman, takes over much of the wedding plans. He said, "My daughter's wedding is in July in Puerto Rico and I am planning the entire thing."
Ortiz, a 36-year old New York native, is an American actress popularly known for her role as Hilda Suarez, the older sister of the main character Betty Suarez
, on the popular television series Ugly Betty
. Prior to her inclusion on Ugly Betty
, she attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Arts and Performing Arts, as well as the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Initially, she worked in theater productions and was included in a number of plays like Hair, Dog Lady and the Cuban Swimmer
, and References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot
. On television, she appeared on shows like NYPD Blue, Over There, The New Adventures of Old Christine, Boston Legal
to name a few.
Even though Ortiz portrays a character slightly lacking of some fashion sense, in real life, she gets a huge doze of elegance and sophistication with her man’s jewelry.
