That ’70s Show veteran and NCIS cast member Wilmer Valderrama announced to the world Sunday evening the arrival of his bouncing baby girl who made her debut on February 15.
NCIS Star Wilmer Valderrama Welcomes His Daughter
In addition to several photographs featuring himself, fiancée Amanda Pacheco, and their newborn, Valderrama wrote on Instagram, “Life is an ever evolving journey, and for all those times when our path needs a light.. often angels are sent to show us the way and that we can be more.. straight out of heaven we welcome our first daughter…”
Pacheco, a model repped by Scout Talent, released the same statement on her own Instagram account, and both included the hashtag #ItsJustUs3Now.
The couple shared the news of their impending addition in December 2020, nearly one full year after Valderrama surprised Pacheco with a New Year’s Day proposal.
The spot he chose to ask the all-important question – San Diego’s picturesque La Jolla beach – holds particular significance (see her Instagram post below for why) for his intended as it’s the spot where she and her late mother spent a “truly amazing day together,” and where she and her family had gathered after the passing to, “[share] a moment in her memory.”
Rumors of the couple’s burgeoning romance began to swirl in April 2019 when they were spotted shopping and dining together in Los Angeles. In June, they attended Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s wedding celebrations arm in arm, and by July, they were a bona fide item.
The year 2021 has proven to be a banner one for Valderrama. Not only did he gain a fiancée and become a father, but he also celebrated his 41st birthday. And come September, he’ll mark five years as an NCIS cast member.
Entertainment Hub sends our heartfelt congratulates to Wilmer Valderrama and Amanda Pacheco on this most auspicious occasion. NCIS will return to CBS’ Tuesday night line-up on March 2. Check your local listings for airtimes.
