Last Friday, Ernesto Laguardia’s wife, Patricia Rodríguez, gave birth to a little girl at a hospital south of Mexico City.

The actor’s mother-in-law, also named Patricia, broke the news. “She was born on Friday,” the baby’s grandmother told newspaper Reforma, without revealing any more details.

“I’m really sorry, but I can’t make any statements, I’m grateful for the attention, but really I can’t make any statements,” Laguardia’s mother-in-law insisted.

The actor, 47, said previously that his daughter would be named Bárbara in honor of his father, who liked the name for being the same as one his favorite literary characters.

Laguardia and Rodríguez, 27, married on May 19 at a ranch in Mexico. Only 40 people attended.
