Alexa & Carlos PenaVega Are Glowing Parents-To-Be in 'Fit Pregnancy' Mag

Alex PenaVega glances lovingly at her husband Carlos in a shot from their spread in Fit Pregnancy and Baby‘s November issue.

The pregnant 28-year-old actress opened up about loving her son Ocean, starting a family and her former eating disorder. Check it:

On finding the right time to start a family: “Carlos and I wanted kids for a while, but this industry does not make it easy for you to be pregnant. We travel so much for work. Plus, we wanted to be in a good place financially. But we realized that the ‘perfect time’ doesn’t exist. So, about six months before I was scheduled to go on Dancing With the Stars, I had my IUD removed and said, ‘Whatever happens, happens.’”

On worrying that her former eating disorder would affect her pregnancy: “We tried to get pregnant for a good six months without luck. When it’s not working, you think, ‘Is there something wrong with me?’ I struggled with an eating disorder when I was younger. It was a big part of my life, and I was worried that I wasn’t getting pregnant because of some long-term damage from what I’d put my body through. Even though my doctor said I was healthy, I felt so guilty about it.”

On loving her son Ocean before meeting him: “My baby is moving all the time; I wonder when he actually sleeps. I discovered I can play little games with him. He chases my hand around my belly: I push my hand on it, and he kicks it off. I wish I could explain how my heart feels when we play that.”
