Gonzalez announced her pregnancy earlier this month, revealing that she has a son on the way.

“We already love you to the moon and back,” she captioned her bump debut. “Countdown till your arrival.”

Gonzalez went on to write that she plans to be the “hottest mom [sic] ever” while thanking party guests for their presents.

“His closet is going to be better then [sic] mine,” she gushed. “I’m so grateful and blessed for all the support I have got, during this journey. Thank you all for the amazing gifts!”

Polanco conceived Gonzalez when she was 17, which she told Parents Latina in 2020 made her feel like “the shame of [her] family.”
