Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz and guitarist husband Noah Lebenzon are counting down the days until the birth of their first baby, a girl! The actress, who is due at the end of July, told People Saturday at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City that she feels "phenomenal."

"I've had a great experience so far," Ortiz said before adding,  "[But] talk to me in another month." The actress has already started nesting, working hard to finish her nursery before the big day. "I just met with the decorator today,” she said. “I didn't want it too frilly frou-frou, too canopy princess-y. So we're doing a sort of eco-friendly, beautiful room. I'm not sure of the color palette yet, but it's going to be gorgeous."

The actress—who says she’s been craving "French toast, pancakes, citrus and lots of fruits" during her pregnancy—is also looking forward to her baby shower, hosted by co-stars America Ferrera and Vanessa Williams. “My gift to her was the catering,” Williams told People. “I've got a wonderful woman who is going to cater. I said, 'Please allow me to do that.' Ortiz says she was “flabbergasted” by the offer. We just hope the caterer knows how to make a mean stack of pancakes.
