It's a Girl for Judy Reyes

Retna Ltd.

Former Scrubs star Judy Reyes welcomed daughter Leila Rey Valencia on Friday, Nov. 27 at 7:11 p.m. The little cutie weighed in at 6 lbs., 7 oz and measured 19 inches long. This is the first child for Reyes, 42, and her partner, director George Valencia.

Before giving birth, Reyes confessed to Pregnancy Magazine that she was a bit nervous about becoming a mother.

“I’ve never been a baby person; babies always scared me,” she said. “I’ve always been afraid to drop them or hurt them.”

However, Reyes has a clear idea about how she'd like to raise her daughter. “I just hope to combine the working-class ways of the daughter from an immigrant group in the Bronx and all those glorious benefits of someone whose made an incredible life—without spoiling the kid,” she said.
