Less than a year after the birth of his daughter, Ernesto Laguardia and his wife, Patricia Rodríguez, couldn't be happier after receiving news that they'll have a new addition to their family.

“Yes, I'm very happy, and so grateful. We've been hoping for this,” said the 48-year-old actor on Televisa Espectáculos, adding that with his wife, 27, had been looking forward to having a second child for months.

“We always wanted to wait a little while, because it's better for the first child, and for the mother as well,” said the host of Hoy (Televisa).

Although they don't know if the baby is a boy or girl yet, the actor was hoping for a boy. “We think it's going to be a boy, because Bárbara doesn't want to be around her mom right now. She always going around with me, and that's instinctive and normal in children, and they can feel and perceive what's going on.”
