The actress, who plays Detective Rosa Diaz in the police procedural sitcom, shared the news with People magazine by revealing her growing bump in a glossy photoshoot with Hoss.
Beatriz didn’t share any more details about her baby’s impending arrival, but in the accompanying interview, the 40-year-old, who came out as bisexual in college, explained she didn’t think she would ever settle down with a husband and child.
“I didn’t think that a committed partnership was really for me,” she said. “I couldn’t really see kids. It wasn’t that I was closed off to it. It was more that I couldn’t quite see how a baby fit into the life that I was building.”
However, after marrying her actor husband in 2018, the couple is now prepping to be first-time parents, and are both committed to raising an understanding child who believes in equality.
“I think one of the best things you can do is raise a kid who understands that however a person chooses to shape their one glorious life is worthy of celebration,” she added.
Beatriz will next be seen in the highly-anticipated movie musical In the Heights, playing a sassy salon stylist named Carla.
