"NCIS" star Wilmer Valderrama and his fiancée Amanda Pacheco announced the addition of a new member to their family, which already functions like a "little village" thanks to the 39-year-old actor.
Wilmer Valderrama and Amanda Pacheco dovetailed on last year's big announcement with another one on December 21, when the actor and his fiancée shared that they are expecting their first child.
The happy announcement comes at the beginning of their lives together, as they were first linked in April 2019. Since then, Valderrama surrounded himself with the people he loves most, quite literally.
A LITTLE VILLAGE ALREADY
During a pandemic dominant year, Valderamma was blessed to have his whole family around him. The actor could see his parents, Pacheco, and his little sister while in quarantine because they live next to him.
And it didn't take long before Valderrama popped the question to his model girlfriend.
When a neighboring property became available, Valderamma bought it for his parents and his younger sister, who lives with them, so he had his family close long before the novel coronavirus turned pandemic.
"My fiancee is here with me, and my little sister lives with my mom. So, I've been able to build a little village around me," Valderamma told ET.
In June 2019, the couple stepped out in public for the first time when they attended Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas' wedding. And it didn't take long before Valderrama popped the question to his model girlfriend.
While in San Diego on New Years Day, Valderrama romantically dropped to one knee with an idyllic seaside background, adding the perfect ambiance. "It's just us now. 01-01-2020," he excitedly shared at the time.
THE PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT
This time, Valderrama and Pacheco's holiday announcement reflected the love that bloomed between them since getting engaged. With a beautiful picture of the couple, Valderrama shared the news.
“It’s just us 3 now,” the actor wrote alongside a picture of Pacheco showing off her baby bump with the actor and future dad standing lovingly behind her.
Wilmer Valderrama's future wife is a PADI divemaster in addition to being a model. He loved spending time with her in quarantine, as it allowed them to get to know each other.
However, Pacheco keeps her private life out of the spotlight despite a public career, and her upcoming wedding plans with Valderrama are just as elusive for now.
