“We already love you to the moon and back 💙🌙.. countdown till your arrival baby boy,” she wrote on Instagram earlier this month, captioning multiple photos of the event including romantic snaps with her partner.

Dascha has been open about her experience as a young mother, telling Parents Latina magazine in 2020 about her approach to raising Dasany and the grace she learned to give herself along the way.

“I allow myself to be vulnerable. I’m able to apologize. I’m able to say, ‘We don’t do that in this house’ or ‘I’m your mother, not your friend,'” the actress explained at the time. “It’s okay to make mistakes. Every mother is just raising her kids to the best of her ability, and the more time passes, the more you learn that.”
